Floaters: Sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous (jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater".

Within a few hours, there is usually severe pain, and area becomes more inflammed and thick. Within 24 hrs, it becomes a big blister. Clean area with cool water and soap, apply ice pack to area, keep at rest. If above changes occur, see doc. ...Read more

Maybe a blackhead...: Whiteheads are pores covered by a thin layer of skin cells. Thus, oils and white blood cells that react to oils (or to acne bacteria in the oil gland) are stuck just under the surface of the skin. The result is a whitehead. It's possible for them to "turn into" blackheads if the thin layer of cells got scrubbed away with washing, allowing the trapped comedone to darken upon exposure to air oxygen. ...Read more

One really small black dot in the back of the neck. Take it off by squeezing, and it dissapear, but then it appears after a month. What could it be?
A blackhead?: Hopefully a dermatologist will also reply, but till then: it might be a blackhead which I believe is not a major problem unless it becomes infected from too much irritation and dirt getting into it. Pores that are larger than normal collect debris and appear darker than others. Gentle cleansing and then an astringent used in moderation may slowly tighten up the pore so it stops collecting dirt. ...Read more
