  1. Hi all, So I am wondering if any of you can impart your wisdom as to how to get rid of a soft, red, raised bump left over from a pimple quicker... Background: So I have clear skin now and have done for around 9 months (*finally!*). In this time frame I have only had 1 large under the skin bumps; this one gracefully planted itself slap bang in the middle of my cheek 2 weeks ago right next to a icepick scar (so it looked super attractive) after using Paula's Choice 2% BHA the night before for
  2. I had this lump between my eyebrows. It was hard, shiny, and white, but it wasn't too thick, it was just wide (nickel sized). A few days ago it started oozing fluid. Some of the fluid was clear, some was brown. A lot of it seemed to drain, but a scab seems to have appeared where it was. I've been washing my face regularly and mildly exfoliating and the scab is shrinking. I've gotten small lumps that drain clear fluid before, but this was bigger and looked worse. Any ideas what it was/is and how
  3. (w/ attached image) On the side of my nose, it started off being red and expanding. A part of it popped and pus came out, but I'm left with a red lump and scabs of dried skin may form on it. It sometimes flatten when I press on it but doesn't go away or come to a head. I think it is a cyst, but what is it and how can I make it go away?
  4. Hey, I was wondering if anyone could help me out and ease the stress from this lump on my cheek bone! On the June 29th before I slept I noticed I had a small lump under the skin and immediately thought it was going to be a large spot, it didn't hurt and as soon as I noticed it I felt it was getting bigger in the short space of 30 minutes. I applied some Lush - mask of Magnaminty to help ease it, but in the morning it had grown an became a nice red colour. Over the next few weeks the redness h
  5. Long story short, I had a cystic pimple on my right cheek in January. I picked on it miserably to no avail. It went through the same healing stage as a regular cyst. (Pimple, lump, dark mark) but what puzzles me is it is still there right now. It looks like your normal post acne red mark from far but occasionally, I would feel sort of like a tiny lump under the skin where it used to be. It never came to a head and looks like the plug is too deep under the skin. It would scab over a few times and
  6. Lumps won't go away. It has been 6 months since my treatment. Had 3 cortisone injections so far. Massaged area 2x a day for months as advised per dermatologist. I have 2 lumps on the left side of my face and one on my right. Juat won't go away. What else can I try? it is really sad to go through this procedure to make my face more presentable and then end up with lumps!! Anybody has advice on what else I can do? The doctor does not seem worried. But I would like these lumps gone... and soo
  7. Hello. I have suffered from mild acne for a few years. I was put on birth control by my derm for the past three months. My acne has only gotten worse each day. I've developed these painful, pimple-like lumps on my jawline since starting the birth control. I have attached a picture. Sorry for the bad lighting. What is it? How can I get rid of it quickly? It's so painful and I can't sleep because it's constantly throbbing. Luckily I see my derm next week.
  8. I might have a slight lump from my first subcision I had a few months ago. It's very slight but I can see it in certain lighting. Will this go away? I want to get a few more subcisions. I am kind of happy with the results from my first procedure. Thanks for any info you can reply with.
  9. Hi so I've been using a benzoyl peroxide treatment for about a month now, and it's been working very well. About 5 days ago, a small spot started on the side of my nose and I treated it with bp. It's been growing and finally stopped except the shape is rectangular. I've been icing it 1-2 times a day and washing my face 2 times a day. Anyone know what it could be or how to treat it? It has no head

  11. I'm on my third month of accutane on 40mg a day as I've had a LOT of side effects, mainly being dry everywhere! Anyway one day I woke up with a weird white tiny lump on my upper waterline of my eye, it made my eye so so itchy for the whole day and it was uncomfortable to blink. I prodded it with a cotton bud in the evening and it basically burst straight away, so it was like having a yellow head type of spot on my waterline... then it was suddenly gone! I am just wondering anyone else has exp
  12. Hi everyone! I have this pea-sized lump under my earlobe that was been there for about 3 months after a pimple had been there. Sometimes it is painful and bothersome and sometimes it is not. I put the retinoid cream my dermatologist prescribed to me and the size would go down but then it would go back to its normal pea-sized lump. I have had really bad cystic acne since I was 13. Could this be a left over scar of the pimple? Does anyone have any recommendations? I wanted to try some things
  13. Hi all, i wanted to ask for some advice about a skin condition i have and how to calm it. i have pretty sensitive skin overall, especially around my mouth. A couple years ago it was so cold that i would get these red patches that would take months to make them go away. Dermatitis and rosacea type symptoms. I have since aquired different moisturizing creams to use daily. Everything was fine so far and the fall cold and wind have not reactivated the patches. Until today when out of nowhere, whil
  14. There were some acne on my scrotum and I used to ignore them unless now. It has started to itch really badly and I can't stand it. Only one bump has grown really bigger (about 1.5 inch) and just this one is itching. I can't even shave my scrotum because of it. How can i remove it. It itches and it is hard. Even a slight push or touch on it gives so much pain that I am really scared. Please guys, I am really sick of it. Answer me before it gets more large. Do I have to see a doctor? Is there any
  15. Hi guys, I'm hoping some of you might have advice on what I should do! I've had cystic acne and rosacea for a number of years, but it's mostly around my mouth, so not that severe. Two+ months ago I got a huge, swollen lump between my mouth and jaw, which was so much worse than any spot I'd had before. I went to my dermatologist who said it was just acne, but that it was too hard to try to surgically drain. He gave me a cortisone injection (first time I've had one!) and it went down by at le
  16. Good evening! I developed this bump/raised area in the center of forehead yesterday, and ever since it was pointed out, it has really bugged me. It is about the size of a quarter, it starts about 3/4 of an inch from the point between my eyes, and is sore to the touch. I tried to lance it last night in desperation (I know, it's not a good idea), but it didn't help and nothing came out of it. Since it's onset, I have been puting benzoil peroxide on the spot (I was using it before but now I ap
