I have bumps on my face that look like pimples but are not and they hurt?

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Skin infection: This sounds like a skin infection which is common in that area of the head. Don't scratch or peel the skin eruptions. Clean it with soap and water, apply Some antiseptic cream on it (no hydrocortisone!) and see your PCP soon. This infection can be very resistant and can rapidly spread. ...Read more

Consider other dx: Sometimes there are skin conditions that co-exist with acne. For example, a condition known as pyogenic granuloma may appear at the site of an acne scar or blemish. This is handled differently than acne and must be diagnosed by the dermatologist. I suggest you don't pick or squeeze this bump and make an appointment with your PMD who may refer you to the dermatologist. ...Read more

Bump: There are many possibilities and merely giving you a list of them is not really helpful. Almost all will be gone within a couple of weeks and nothing to be concerned about. If it's important for you to know what it is, see an Oral Surgeon for a more likely definitive diagnosis. In almost all cases we can diagnose these lesions just by observation. A few require a biopsy. Usually gone anyway! ...Read more

Got a small red bump two days ago. Doesn't hurt. If I look closely I see a small white bump in it, no head. Is that a blind pimple, will antibiotics help?

Fomentation: Warm compress may help in maturing the bump that appears to be a pimple. Do not try to pop it as that makes for a bigger scar. Please consult this site for effective home care for acne.

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. ...Read more

Acne: Don't try to figure out why you have acne. You almost never find out. If your periods are okay, it is probably not "hormones." The stuff you are using for it is basically worthless. If topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid don't help, your physician can add spironolactone or try the oral contraceptive pill. Best wishes. ...Read more
