Cysts: Cysts are simply sacs of tissue filled with a substance that makes them expand. There are many types of cysts in the body, but the most common in the area you are talking about is a sebaceous cyst. Most are benign problems but some can cause damage to surrounding structure and some, even more rare, can be neoplasms. Cysts typically cannot be treated at home. Definitive treatment of a cyst requires complete removal of the tissue and, in cases where the growth is more aggressive, some surrounding normal tissue is removed to prevent a recurrence. For these reasons you seek care from a surgeon for evaluation, removal and biopsy.

Infection vs ingrown: Some people get folliculitis an infection along the hair follicle. Perhaps the barber's equipment is not clean? ! Topical antibiotic ointment can help or in bad cases, oral antibiotics from your doctor. Sometimes people can get a fungal infection (Tinea Capitis - google it). Another possibility in ingrown hair if the haircut was very short. In that case you need to keep the hair longer.

Sebaceous cyst: You can "pop" a zit, pimple, or cyst, but the sac around it has cells that produce the sebum that you squeeze out--unless the sac is removed, it will return. See a plastic surgeon for proper removal and least scarring. Do not pick!

I have a lot of ingrown hair bumps on the back of my leg, what causes them and how can I get rid of them? P.s. I don't shave that area of my leg.

Ingrown hairs: Try to exfoliate and moisturize the skin with 1/2 cup of sugar in 1/2 cup olive oil. While in the shower. Shower, apply let stand 1-2 minutes rinse off. Build up of dead skin is a factor as is dry. Skin with thick hairs. F/u with dermatologist see http://www. Webmd. Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/guide/ingrown-hair-causes-symptoms-treatment?

Painful or not?: Is it painful? Have you ever had them before? Are there any other bumps elsewhere on your body or in your mouth? If it's painful, it could be a canker sore. If not, it could be an inflamed taste bud or a benign fibroma, possibly from past trauma to the tongue. I would recommend that you go to your doctor and have it looked at.

See Your Doctor: Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition; causes dry, itchy areas; treated with topical steroids, moisturizers & more. Once the eczema clears, involved skin may become lighter due to loss of pigmentation. Return of pigmentation can takes wks to yrs. Treatment involves watchful waiting while using cosmetic cover-ups, laser, & more. Pimples sound unrelated; visual exam is needed. See your doctor.

Bumps: These are likely osteomas. I do not know if you can have them "shaved down". However, you might seek out the opinion of a neurosurgeon, othropedist or plastic surgeon for advice.
