Bumps: Occasionally pustules turn into firm lumps called papules. Over time these may very slowly shrink but at times they persist without changing size. I would give this months to see if they reduce in size. If not and you would like to do something about removing them, consult a plastic or cosmetic surgeon for evaluation and advice. ...Read more

Skin Tag: An acrochordon (plural acrochorda, and also known as a cutaneous skin tag, fibroepithelial polyp) is a small benign tumour that forms primarily in areas where the skin forms creases, such as the neck, armpit, and groin. They may also occur on the face, usually on the eyelids. Acrochorda are harmless and typically painless, and do not grow or change over time. See your derm for excision. ...Read more

Worth getting seen: We can't diagnose you at a distance, but this is worth discussing with your physician, now if it is new, or at your regular appointment if it is not. This may be anything from the "adenoma sebaceum" of mild tuberous sclerosis to early deformity from rosacea to sebaceous hyperplasia. I'll bet on the last. ...Read more

Nose: You should not squeeze things on your face because it in many instance creates more trauma that causes more swelling. Please try to stop squeezing these areas and see a dermatologist who has aestheticians. ...Read more

Well true epidermal: Inclusion cysts will recur until the sac of the cyst is dissolved. Also perhaps that wasn't a pimple on your nose but some other benign growth, so see your dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment options ...Read more

I found out its probably a pimple but im dumb so what is this red bump my nose, what do you recommend?

Pimples in and: Around the nasal tip should be treated like an infection. This is considered a danger area because the veins of the central face do not have valves and communicate with the intracranial circulation. I recommend starting with warm soaks and avoid squeezing it. If it swells and becomes painful you need to see a doctor for antibiotics. ...Read more

Nasal bump: Hello, it would be a helpful to stop trying to "pop" your nasal lesion. If it is or was a pustule, your manipulation will cause a cellulitis to develop around the lesion thus preventing it from resolving. See your doctor because it may need to be treated with an antibiotic. ...Read more

Just a pimple: The plug of sebum can be big enough to stretch the pore. A couple of warm showers will help it get back to normal. Try very hard not to scratch. Can get infected. ...Read more

Need to see a Derm: We don't get pimple at this stage. So watch out for something else.
A skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma could look like a pimple, somewhat irritating (painful in a sense?) or itching, slowly growing bigger but would not go away. Don’t manipulate it; see a dermatologist to make sure not it. ...Read more

Have had a pimple like bump on my nose for a couple months and probably a year now. It is a little red but not really noticeable. Doesn't hurt. Pls help?

If you haven't: Already, I would recommend you have your doctor check it. It is difficult on this platform to make that diagnosis without seeing it. It could be a mole, which is benign or a sebaceous cyst (skin gland cyst) or another entity. So, please see your own doctor or a dermatologist to have the proper diagnosis made. ...Read more
