I have what looks like a hard pimple/acne on my shoulder. It is only one bump about the size of a BB and hard. It won't go away. I have had it for over a year and clean very well but it seems to be there permanant. Is this a form of acne and what can I do to get it to go away?
Hi. It is unlikely that this lump is an acne spot. You should see your doctor for diagnosis, a biopsy may be required to ensure this lump is benign. Repost this question in the Dermatology Forum as i am only an expert on acne, and I don't think that it what you have.
