I am 17 years old. Male. And i have some acne on my face. There is an inflammed bump, kind of sore and sensitive. No color really. So far, it is just a bump from my inner eye about 1/2 down nose. Can't tell what it is. Could be cancer? or could it be just like an in-grown pimple? There is no redness really just a large bump. Slightly firm but seems like some liquid inside. Can someone please help answer?
Hi, we are patients and not able to diagnose but my thought is that it's a blind pimple that hasn't matured yet. Lots of warm soaks .. can use a teabag in water to apply or a raw potato heated up in the microwave and wrapped in something as a compress are my thoughts that I've done in the past. It should help "ripen' it so it comes to head. If it's persistent could be a boil which is a giant pimple. If you think it may be of concern, have a trusted adult and Doc take a look, too. If it is other than a generic pimple, have it looked at if it doesn't heal, opens and doesn't heal, looks suspicious, etc. Some skin cancers are red bumps.
