The above pictures are of my chest, and this is what I'm not sure if it's acne or not. What you're looking at are the bumps on my chest/stomach. If you can see a few of them, just know that there are a lot more. They are skin color and do not have heads.

I did successfully "pop" 3 of them and a long string of cheese-like pus came out along with a hair, and then some liquid white pus for a little bit for each one. (Maybe ingrown hair?)

I've tried a benzoyl peroxide face wash for a week and also a salicylic acid face wash for a few days but saw no change. So then I stopped using the washes and tried a benzoyl on-spot treatment once a day for 3 days. And like the washes, also tried a salicylic acid on-spot treatment for a few days.

After all that I see extremely little change.

It's possible for me to go to my pediatrics maybe, but no time/money for a dermatologist, vacation and then leaving for school soon.

Any suggestions?

Bonus question: I have bumps on my nose that used to be pimples, but I guess I popped them incorrectly and now they're just bumps. But this was about a year and a half ago. Not sure what to do with these.

Possibly multiple pilar cysts.
