Rise up!: Prayer works for some people, not so well for others. No way to get pimples to work on a schedule. And alcohol just irritates things. My choice for spot therapy is an otc benzoyl peroxide product applied to a pimple after a hot soak, 3 times a day. This usually make things go away more quickly, or at least makes them come to a head.

I have a small pimple/bump (painless) under my chin, it is under the skin and won't go away. Is it a cyst?

I have a small pimple/bump (painless) under my chin, it is under the skin and won't go away. Is it a cyst?

Maybe, likely not: Many small bumps, especially in hair covered areas, can be caused by pimples or ingrown hairs that never reach the surface of the skin. Most of these will go away on their own in a few months.

A lump like this`: Really needs to be felt by your PCP (Primary Care Provider) however it sounds like an old inflammed LYMPH NODE (gland) from an old infection! The LOCATION as well as the SIZE and CONSISTANCY are used to determine if it needs to be removed! Get it seen! Hope this helps! Dr Z

Cyst: May be a bartholin gland cyst, inclusion cyst or a gartner duct cyst. A provider would be able to tell from an exam. They can enlarge and become painful and sometimes get infected. May need to be drained or removed.

Tinier than a pimple WAYYYY deep under the skin behind my neck (under head at top of spinal cord. It's pea size, feels like a bone! Doesn't move?

Not sure...: ...what it is, but I AM sure it's NOT at the top of your spinal cord. If you could feel that, you'd have some serious problems. Unfortunately, it's impossible to understand what you're trying to describe.

1 big pimple, the lump under the skin was a little bigger than a pea. It popped, healed, then bruised, and bruise is still there but smaller 2 months.

Go to see Dr.: Go see a doctor and have it checked. It could be a slow healing bruise, but there's always a chance of a skin cancer, especially if it doesn't heal after 2 months.

Exercise no help: In acne prevention, but of course it's good for your body, as is water! If this is the only one you get, just keep the pores open by applying hot washcloth every morning and evening for a few minutes and if the pimple comes, use some salicylic acid acne preparation to dry it up. If it really bothers you, a laser treatment could kill the bacteria that is causing the pimple.

Wel...: Cleaning with soap and water is the best a couple times a day... And you should be seen: Sometimes this can be Herpes (of course we hope not)

I have red, inflamed, under the skin and very painful acne, as well as small white bumps on my chin. How do I get rid of it?

Very serious: Painful acne may be compounded by allergy to the bacteria that cause it. It is a grave personal and professional liability and you need to be under the care of a competent physician, probably a dermatologist.

Yes, Neck and Back: Acne can occur anywhere there are sebaceous glands (oil glands) in the skin. Web md is a great resource to learn more about acne. Skin hygiene with soap and water followed by benzol peroxide or 2% salicylic acid products are over the counter options. An evaluation by a dermatologist can help develop a long term plan. Resistant acne can also be treated with antibiotics and some laser therapy.

I have a big pimple on my nose, no head. Spot treatments?

Put some heat on it: A heating pad can help bring it to a head. Don't squeeze it unless there is a head. Try some over the counter acne cream with Benzoyl Peroxide. Good luck!

I have a big lump on the top of my head. I squeezed it because I thought it was a pimple and some stuff did come out. What should I do?

I have a big lump on the top of my head. I squeezed it because I thought it was a pimple and some stuff did come out. What should I do?

Lump on head: You may have a sebaceous cyst. Without seeing you in person, this is just a guess. I recommend that you see a plastic surgeon to have it removed completely. Even after removal, these can recur. But to maximize your chances of complete removal and the best possible scar, a plastic surgeon is your best option.
