Skin care: 60 year old gentleman with history of a skin infection versus cyst. You should visit a dermatologist in the office to examine your skin. It is possible that this is a self-limited skin infection or infected follicle or it could be a sebaceous cyst which has lining that will elaborate keratinous grummus until that lining is scraped. Your dermatologist will be able to evaluate this for you.
