Very serious: Painful acne may be compounded by allergy to the bacteria that cause it. It is a grave personal and professional liability and you need to be under the care of a competent physician, probably a dermatologist. ...Read more

Cysts: Without a picture, it is hard to arrive to correct diagnosis. Based on your description, i suspect some retention cyst (skin oil retention), however, this is purely my guess at this time. See doc for more definite diagnosis. ...Read more

How can I clear pores on face, esp. nose & chin? Nose pores are dark, under bottom lip are small white bumps, both make whitish solid when squeezed

Pores: Without a closeup exam I cannot say for certain but the pores are part of the normal anatomy of your skin and they are full of sebum (oil) from below. When it gets to the surface it oxidizes and turns dark. To try to "clean" them you would be as successful as King Canute ordering the tide to hold back at his command.

Small salt like bumps on my chin I am 55 years old and have never had an acne problem..Yay for that. However, i now have these salt like bumps on my chin that look like white heads. My skin is dry and very sensitive, what could they be and how can I rid

Hard : Hard to tell without a clinical examination so i would see a dermatologist, but perhaps these are milium, sebaceous hyperplasia, or other possibilities. Read more refissa and obagi at the link below. In combination, these treatments can help sun damaged skin and milium. Another option might be extraction if they are indeed milium. I hope that helps a little. ...Read more

I had a small hard painful bump under my chin and it has become larger over a few days. Is this something I should have checked out?

I had a small hard painful bump under my chin and it has become larger over a few days. Is this something I should have checked out?

Possibly: Without knowing what else is going on it is difficult to diagnose. Since it occurred rapidly it is likely to be a lymph node reacting to some local inflammatory process, either in the oral cavity or surrounding areas. If it continues to enlarge and is tender or red it would not hurt to have a health care professional take a look. Good luck. ...Read more

There is a bump under my chin. Not on the skin, but deeper. Also a small area in front of the bump is numb. What could this be?

Really hard to say: Without seeing it or touching it. It could be a zit that is pressing on a nerve. It could be a mass. At any rate it sound like something you need to go to the doctor and have checked out. ...Read more
