However, when I do that, it seems as though a day or two later, the lump hardens, and it takes weeks, if not months to go away.
Even more recently, I got a lump on
portion of my forehead (right side) that became large, and very sore. I never touched it because it was nothing like a pimple. It took about a week to reduce in size, then go away. 7 days later, it grew back in the same exact place, and is following the same pattern over again.
