Ignore, Pop, Excise:
This is a benign skin lesion-like a blocked oil gland-thick, cheesy grease is encapsulated in a membrane. If it gets infected, it needs to be drained and removed.
Unless you surgically remove the entire lesion, skin pore and membrane, it is likely to return eventually. Excision is quick and easy-in the office, with just local anesthesia. Stitches come out in about a week. Leaves a small scar. ...Read more

It will be much better to cool it off with antibiotics and then have your plastic surgeon remove it entirely. The surgeon must remove the entire capsule with it to avoid a recurrence.
Be well, dr. Fred. ...Read more
