Sebaceous glands,: Which are not emptying, commonly called blackheads. Best is daily repeated cleansing of skin with soap, water & "soft" brush (thick baking soda/water mix & sweating can also help) to dissolve the sebum before it thickens, oxidizes (the black color) & further blocks the opening of each gland. Longer soaking with very warm/hot solution, at first, will help dissolve the oxidized sebum. ...Read more

I've a pea size lump on left side of my neck over a year. It was a pimple. Nw ts about 1cm. I've no other problems. Its not painful. Slightly movable.
