Bump On My Face Not A Pimple
I have bumps on my face similar to pimples, and the more I pop them, the more they seem to spread. What is it?!
Maybe not pimples: It could be molluscum contagiosum, a viral condition similar to warts - and called "contagiosum" for a reason! It could also be a folliculitis due to either bacterial or yeast organisms, which can also be spread by squeezing. The lesson here, obviously, is stop squeezing! And see a dermatologist to find out exactly what it is and get proper treatment for it.
I have 3 bumps on my face looks like pimples but it has puss and blood and hard very painful also have one on my arm what could this be?
May not be acne: Bumps on the face that hurt may be deeper-than-average acne bumps. A dermatologist can help treat them. If they are not acne, and don't come to the surface and break open to drain themselves, then the dermatologist will also be very helpful. Sometimes the doctor can open a bump to see what is inside.See 1 more doctor answer

Probably Acne "Cyst": Arleen, This is probably an acne cyst, which is a ruptured, painful bump where an oil gland ruptured below the skin. The body walls this off and makes a filled cavity called a cyst. Often this is serious and can scar, so you should see a dermatologist for help. Possibly, an injection of the cyst with a dilute cortisone would help.

Red bump: Would be best to get it examined to know what it is.

Possible chalazion: If it involves the lower eyelid not the upper cheek it is probably a chalazion which is inflammation of a clogged meibomian oil gland. Treatment consists of warm compresses and massage and surgical drainage if no resolution after about a month. If the surrounding skin area becomes inflamed a preseptal cellulitis could be occurring which would require systemic antibiotics.See 2 more doctor answers

I've a prblm with my chin &bottom side of face as there appeared tiny pimple like bumps 3 weeks back. It isn't pimple. Now I feel like its spreading?
Folliculitis?: Face rashes can be checked by a primary care doctor or a dermatologist. If there is an infection in the pores or hair follicles, antibiotics may be needed. If it is some form of acne, acne treatments may be used (sometimes acne treatment includes some antibiotics).
I have had a pimple-like bump on my bottom for about nine years. It doesn't have a head like a normal pimple and isn't exactly painful, just annoying.

I've noticed a pimple sized bump on the top of my head. It's painless and hasn't grown in size. I believe it's been there for years. Should I worry?
Probably no worries: Since the pimple sized area has been present and unchanging for years, and isn't bothering you it is very unlikely to be bad. It is probably a mole or a small cyst. If it changes size I'd have it checked.
I've been finding random, painless, pimple looking bumps on my skin that do not disappear. They are round and shiny, with no crater look, clear on face?
Difficult to know: Diagnosing rashes without seeing them & then recommending treatment is really impossible over the internet. Best bet is to have a physician look at them. Google " molluscum contagiosum". See if they look like that.
