I'm really confused, I keep getting these things on my face, probably on average about
5-10 a week of them, sometimes one or two at a time, sometimes all together. They're a bit of a cross between a smallish pimple and a large insect bite. I'm male and in my mid twenties.
Here are the features (sounds like I'm selling a car!):
they don't hurt
sometimes they're a bit itchy
if you scratch them lightly with a finger nail it takes a tiny piece of skin off the top, revealing a small red wound, the bump quickly begins to go down. You can also lightly put a pin in them, just enough to break the outer layer of skin.
just out of curiosity i sqeeuzed one to see what was in it, a little tiny drop of blood reluctantly came out.
i've had them for several months, in which time they've moved away from my ears a bit towards my cheeks, although they come up smaller than what they did, they are more frequent now, at first i thought it was a fish oil supplement that was causing them as it seemed to subside a bit when i stopped taking that, and the same for a zinc supplement. Now i take neither, and like i say they're much smaller but i can't hardly go 48 hours without them.
I'd be really really greatful for any advice, thoughts, anything! It's really playing havoc with my anxiety disorder! Mark.
