Bumps on face that will not go away

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on face that will not go away


Avatar n tn I have two weird bumps on my face -- both very hard and noticeable...which never go away. When I finally get the skin broke above either of them, I can squeeze "****" out of the spots, which I have done until they bleed. Know this may sound disgusting, but am so frustrated with them! After they finish bleeding, they turn into a scab (of course), then come right back in the exact same spots.
Avatar n tn I finally had to go off the diane 35 because the migraines became unbearable, and instead of spending $40 each month, i ended up spending the $40 plus $110 on migraine meds, and my bp rose so high i had to go on meds right away (and im only 32 yrs old), jus tto give a little background of myself, im a person who loves fashion, makeup, jewlery, and always beign on trend. so needless to say, looks are of significant importance to me.
Avatar m tn I have felt low grade flu like symptoms with mild headache and sore throat and general ill feeling since the prodrome that waxes and wanes but will not go away. I have been on 2 grams of acyclovir per day for pretty much the whole time, switching to valtrex once, but nothing will make this completely subside. I was also put on 2 courses of doxycycline for ten days each that didn't seem to do much..
Avatar f tn I have dry skin so i generally put baby oil on my face but i discovered that if i dont put any on the bumps they start to dry up and go away. They're not always red and they don't hurt its just there. They're are in the perfect circle like ringworm but i know its not ringworm because i've had it before and they don't itch or anything. I'ts right on the top of my left cheek bone and its driving me crazy because i can't cover them up and its the size of a quarter.
Avatar f tn Yes it will go away. Many millions of women get acne break out while pregnant due to the change in hormones. Mine actually got better while I was pregnant and has stayed clear since I gave birth--unless I get super stressed out. I would ask your doctor about anything you can use. Some things like plain soap and water are fine, but anything else I'd check into first. To prevent them from spreading DO NOT break them or scratch them. It will only spread it and can make it worse.
Avatar f tn Body wash used as a facial cleaner might be too harsh for your face and that is why you are getting the little bumps. I will share a quick story with you. A long time ago when I was still taking vacations with my family, we had to stop overnight in a motel. The only soap available to wash my face was Ivory soap. Now, when I travel, I bring my own soap.
Avatar m tn I now have the red itchy bumps all over my body excluding my genital area and face but they are starting to appear on my neck and I worry they will soon be on my face. The bumps do not go away, they turn into scabs or dry flakey spots and itch/burn now. I've changed nearly everything I use soap wise, which did not help. I've noticed that scratching only make's them worse and they swell up like a mosquito bite, but they itch so bad it's hard not to, and after showering is the absolute worst.
Avatar f tn I'm 30 years old have been on birth control (ortho trycyclin low) for the past 10 years, which has kept my skin fairly clear (just a few blemishes here and there, usually in response to my cycle). However, about 4 weeks ago, I woke up to find my entire forehead covered in what appeared to be pimples but they do not act like "normal" pimples. I cannot squeeze anything out of them (which I know is bad but I still tried) and some of them are starting to hurt.
Avatar n tn That is used to kill bacteria that is on the surface of the skin. Hopefully that will help. Hope you feel better soon.
Avatar n tn My entire family has a itchy blotchy rash that will not go away. My wifes appear to be bites but other family member are bumps and blotches. I have bug bombed the house and our dog stays outside. There is a pet snake in the house, could this the cause? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn i am 19 years old, and when i do masturbate, acne will form on my face and on my scalp. when i don't masturbate for awile, my face will clear up totally. when i went to the doctor, he prescribed me erythromycin 2% topical solution for what he said was a bacteria on my scalp. this cleared it for a little while, but when i masturbated again it would come back. This has been a problem for awile and i would like to find out what this really is, especially the acne type things on my scalp.
Avatar f tn Over the yrs I woukd go to the Dr, get a steroid injection or and or be placed on prednisone and the hives would go away for quite some time. The last time I had the hives now was 3 yrs ago.at that time, I had my current rash along with the hives. I got the steroids, it all went away for 1 yr. The next yr around mid to late May the red, bumpy insanely itchy rash reoccurred and I have not been rash free for more than a 2 wk period since then. The rash is much, much worse from May to September.
Avatar n tn but i am going to a general doc thrus so we will see....
Avatar n tn I wash my face and put acne medicine on it almost every night, and no matter what I do, it will not go away! I feel like I am going to lose it with this thing, its right on the tip of my nose and is completely noticeable to anyone who looks at me, and I can tell they are staring at it and trying to figure out what the hell is on my nose. Please help!
Avatar f tn After and until now (20 years old), I have what appears to be a red rash with raised smooth bumps on my cheeks mostly. My face flushes quite easily so I try to avoid excess heat and dry places. I do have mild acne but not near where this rash appears. I have never been able to make it go away and have used extremely gentle cleansers and moisturizers to help it go away.
Avatar n tn I have these red, itchy bumps on my face that appear mainly on my cheek bones near the eye area and around my hair line on my forehead. I do not wear glasses, i have tried changing creams and washes, nothing seems to help. I live in Canada and I have been waiting for 4 months to see a dermatologist. When i squeeze the bumps only a little bit of puss comes out sometimes, at other times nothing comes out. They are always red, regardless if i touch them or not.
Avatar n tn I think it might be milia kind of thing where in the sebaceous secretions from the skin of nose gets collected and appears as bumps on nose. They are non-pathological; hence it will cure on its own. You can do face scrub and see whether it helps. Alternatively, you can consult board certified dermatologist, preferably teaching hospital ones. Happy Holidays to you. Bye.
Avatar m tn Hello, so my doctor has recommended I see a dermatologist after about 3 years of having a constant outbreak of hives/rash. It pops up in random pimple like bumps on my arms, face (especially around eyebrows), and one cluster of red/pink itchy bumps on each leg close to the inner thigh, on my neck - some pimple looking, some hive looking, large itchy welts behind my ears, hive looking ones on my chest, etc. They itch very VERY badly when I am hot or start to sweat, or in a hot bath.
Avatar n tn They are more akin to what looks like a deep blemish, a lighter color, that never seems to go away. I do not mind them much but it would be great to know what to do to get rid of them. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Best thing I've found is to not shower as often (I try to go every 3 days), not have the water as hot, and put lotion on while your skin is still damp to seal in the moisture. I've gotten a few itchy/hives areas too but they go away in a day or so when I'm lotioning like crazy. Coconut oil may also help.
Avatar m tn I was under the impression though that sebaceous cysts didn't go away on their own and instead had to be surgically removed? These bumps also fluctuate in size - they appear small, swell when touched, and return to being small again when not aggravated. Eventually, after several days, they just go away on their own. They could be a form of pimple, but I've never seen or heard of anyone else experiencing acne such as this.
Avatar n tn This doesn't happen all the time but when it does it takes forever for them to go away. Now I am experiencing bumps underneath the skin on my face. It looks like a pimple but never comes up. When I try to squeeze it, there is a waxy substance that comes out. Please tell me how to get rid of these bumps.
Avatar f tn As I also have had intermittent itchy bumps on my upper arms (was told it was eczema) and prescribed steroid cream, Dermatolgist #2 gave me a different steroid gel to use on my face and neck. Did not help the bumps on face and neck. The bumps seem to come and (somewhat) go, but are mostly present. Very frustrating. They don't itch, but become flaky as they flatted and go away. It takes several weeks for the reddness to fade.
Avatar m tn Do you think maybe its poison ivy? Dont go back in the bush, and take a benedrayl. Or use a calamine lotion, oatmeal bath. Its prob just something in the bush, you dont have to touch it even just breathe it. One time i went to visit my friends and spent the night..they live in a wooded area. I went into the house and spent the night. I woke up the next morning I woke up my face and hands were swollen with large red patches covering me. I was sooo itchy, here it was poision ivy.
Avatar n tn same problem i no ur not suposed 2 use steroid cream on ur face but i plaster it on then they go 4 a couple of weeks then soon as they come back i do the same id rava hav thin skin that that
Avatar n tn Hives are usually allergic (food, medication and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found. They usually go away on their own, but in a few serious cases, medicine might be needed. The most commonly used oral treatments are antihistaminics (such as cetirizine, loratidine, benadryl available over the counter). You should try moisturizing lotions and calamine lotion and avoid any deodorants.
Avatar n tn I also notice that ever since my rash in 2002, I tend to crop up with alot of blemishes on my skin. The worrying thing is that they do not go away, but instead linger indefinitely and make my face seem alittle older. I am not so vain as to care about the aesthetic side, but they do feel abit sensitive to any scratching.
