I have a zit on my face that has been there for months and it never surfaces and it's hard. What is it and what should I do about it?

In brief: See a dermatologist

Some acne lesions will never drain and become hard or turn into a small scar. There may still be something trapped in the lesion.
Go see a dermatologist, he/she will be able to help you get rid of it.

This may be an acneiform cyst, which would respond to an intralesional steroid injection administered by a dermatologist.
