Photo or exam: If these are bumps in the skin of your cheek they may be infected skin follicles - but a photo or physical exam would help define what they may be. If they are fluid filled it's possible they would benefit from drainage, but the first step is to make a diagnosis. Consider taking a clear photo and attaching it to a consult request to a dermatologist in HealthTap Concierge.
