Is it really a blackhead - it smells
Hubby has what looks like a lump on his chest. It smells.  Went to MD and MD squeezed it and kind of a black core came out. MD wouldn't do more. It hurt. It went down some, but is still there and it smells.  MD told him it was a blackhead. We were worried cause he smoked for 40 yrs. (past tense--just quit last Dec.)

Although blackheads can be caused by bacteria they do not usually smell. Seek a second opinion from a more sympathetic doctor. Loiloi x
