Ever since high school, I've remembered getting zits and these hard bumps on my face. These hard bumps don't fill with white pus or turn soft. Nevertheless, I can pop them still. What I've come to find is that these bumps are actually filled with hard, yellow, clear, and oily deposits. They have a definitive elliptical shape. One of the ends is on the surface of the skin and makes the area painful to touch. When I pop these hard bumps, the oily deposit comes out as a whole and usually leaves a tiny hole on my face. No pus or blood comes out of these holes and they heal in a day or two.
Does anyone have any idea what these are? I don't think they are just oil deposits because there seems to be a specific shape to them. Besides, I don't eat a lot of oily foods.
