Common Questions and Answers about White bumps on face under skin


Avatar n tn For the last year my pores have enlarged and I have many white bumps under the skin on my right side of my face around the chin, jaw and top of the cheek bone down to the jaw with a few a couple in the middle of my right cheek. They arent hard bumps and most if squeezed while produce a white string substance and it never goes away. I wash my face morninng & night and have tried every type of face wash hoping to find my cure. Can you please tell me what this is and how do I get rid of them.
Avatar n tn i need to know how I can get rid of these bumps under the skin around my neck. I've been to 2 dermatologists and they both said its "cysts" under the skin and nothing can be done to get of them unless they are infected. I have had one or two that was "poppable" and when squeezed a white string tissue came out. After it healed, the skin was flat again. Should i use a needle and poke every single one to release that white string tissue? will a shot of cortisone work?
Avatar n tn If the whiteheads surface, it will be in the form of blackheads or white pustules. Proactiv should help, but on some types of skin Proactive can make the skin drier and tighter, which will worsen the blocked pores. If this should happen, a quality facial moisturizer day and night will help keep the skin supple to allow topical medicines to get into the pores.
Avatar f tn I have them next to my nose and under my nose and under my bottom lip, on my cheeks, and somewhat on my forehead. I am not sure what they are but they do not bother me though. I think I started getting more when I went to Thailand but they never went away. I do have dry skin also. They are the same color as my skin but sometimes they are red.

Avatar m tn From time to time some of these bumps will act like a pimple and white puss does come out of it and some even have an ingrown hair come out as well. Is there anything I can do about these bumps on my face? They do not hurt but more than anything hurt my self esteem. By the way in the last five years they have seemed to get worse. Thanks for your help!
Avatar f tn but lately ive noticed that it is coming back again. First i noticed all these little white bumps on my face.. then slowly one would get irritated and become a pimple! (note that i would NEVER pick at the little white bumps) but now it is getting worse and im getting two or three pimples on my cheeks and around my mouth as well as on my chin. Ive been using clearasil daily face wash since March. I use to use neutragena.. but it dried out my face and really irritated my skin.
Avatar f tn My acne goes away but the tiny bumps doesn't. The bumps are on my nose, forehead, under my eyes its around the nose area and my chin my faces is always oily so its not scaly either can this be cured?

Avatar f tn This may seem like an odd question, but do you have gasto-intestinal issues as well (cramping, constipation/diareah, mucous in stool, etc)? If so, you may be suffering from a fungal infection. I'd been getting progressively sicker over the past few years and none of the many specialists I went to could figure out the cause of my MANY symptoms (broad range, developed over time so they seemed unrelated).
Avatar m tn Hello, Well about a month or so ago i noticed about three small white bumps on my penis head, but their on the face of it i've always had little bumps under the rim of the head but that's not what concerns me, their kind of hard to see unless you squeeze the penis in a way so the head is engorged or press up on the tip of the head so its kind of bent. They might have appeared after receiving oral sex from this girl, i noticed the day after i also had some redness on the head of my penis as well.
Avatar f tn I have these smalls bumps all over my face. They seem to be Under the skin. But The are not the typical acne. I don't know what to use. I have tried everything. and on top of that my face is SUPER oily....Can U help please?
Avatar n tn My skin is very fair and prone to freckling and burns. I have had white (much lighter than the rest of the skin on my face) circles under my eyes for the past 6-9 months. I can cover them with makeup to help them blend with the rest of my skin, but I would like to fix the problem. Please let me know what this is and if there is a solution. Thank you for your time.
Avatar m tn you mean on these bumps?ill do that thanks. about the hsv2 on the face?what do you think?is it common?
Avatar f tn Hi, My husband was out in the sun and did some yard work this past weekend, which he doesn't regularly do, and then rode on our jet ski for a little while, all the while wearing a visor and sunglasses. Now 4 days later he has what appears to be skin discoloration, as if he has white spots on his forehead, and now after getting out of the shower he has small red bumps all over his forehead and under his eyes.
Avatar n tn My sister has recently developed cyst like bumps on her face, mostly around her nose in the t-zone area of her face. They are hard and very deep but you can see the white cysts under the skin. they range in size from very tiny to medium around the size of a dull pencil led. Sometimes she is able to remove them with an extractor or by wrapping gauze around her fingers and mashing them out.
Avatar n tn Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky, dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp. under the nose or anywhere on face. You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos. Shampoo the hair vigorously and frequently (preferably daily). Active ingredients in these shampoos include salicylic acid, coal tar, zinc, resorcin, ketoconazole, or selenium.
Avatar f tn Hello, I have had a patch on my cheek for about a year now. it is a cluster of white bumps...they are not very visible though since i have a lot of freckles. Right now, one of the white bumps has tripled in size and seems like it has filled with something...it just looks like a large white/clearish bump. This has happened once before in the same spot like 8 months ago and progressed into a large boil type thing that took forever to go down even though i tried to drain it and such.
Avatar n tn Where did these little white bumps come from? They are just under the skin of the lips on my mouth. I was concerned because they just appeared on day. And when I'm washing my face in the mirror I notice them. Should I be concerned? Do you know what they are? If so how can I get rid of them?
Avatar f tn Conditions like acne, cyst,milia all can cause small bumps on the face, arms and chin.Milia are tiny white bumps or small cysts on the skin and they occur when dead skin becomes trapped in small pockets at the surface of the skin .Are these bumps pearl colored? If yes then it is possible that these are molluscum contagiosum .It is a viral infection which causes appearance of small flesh colored bumps and is contagious. Avoid scratching or popping it.
Avatar n tn Firstly , it has to be ascertained that the bumps contain fluid . Differentials for small, skin colored bumps on the face may be warts, skin tags and molluscum. Do these bumps have a central umbilication ? Are they itchy or painful?
Avatar n tn well i have white bumps on the high part of my arm that are spreading lower and lower even on my chest and on my legs and even on my neck and under chin too now and i've been to doctors and they said it was keratin thats not escaping from under the skin and they gave me some cream to treat it after about 2 or 3 days of using it i broke out in hives and a rash so i stopped using it and am very confused why its spreading and if you try to pop them white stuff could( be keratin) that looks like wh
