I am a 25 year old female with no history of acne, just normal breakouts here and there. I have a dime size painful skin nodule on my forehead. The first time I got one of these it was about 4 years ago. It stopped for about a year and then became more frequent. I only ever have one at a time an it does not come before or during my menstrual cycle. It is not a pimple. I can tell when it is starting to form because my skin in that area becomes sore and hard. It usually lasts for about a week or so. Nothing helps, over the counter acne treatments, heat or cold packs. It contains orange-ish fluid. There is no head on it either. It is just a painful bump. It seems as though they come more frequently when I am stressed. There is no way to make it go away than besides time. It decreases in size but then comes up again the next month in a different place. Can anyone offer any suggestions on what I may have and possibly how to treat it?
