A pimple that won't go away? adult content

Anyone else ever had this happen, if so what did you eventually do? I've got this small red bump close to my nose, more toward the cheek. Kinda like if you smile, where your mouth comes up? Hard to explain. Most of the time it's a red bump without a head on it. Sometimes I see white, so I squeeze and just a little white comes out (sorry, gross I know). Then I put zit med on it, it gets all dry and flaky and gets better but never goes away! I'm talking a year maybe it's been there.
FYI, I know squeezing is wrong for some people. For me, it helps open it so the medicine will work and usually it's bye-bye zit. This one is just weird. Not painful, till I mess with it.
What could it be? Any suggestions? I do not have good ins. so a dermatologist is out of the question.
BTW, if you have something rude to say ..... go somewhere else please. I wouldn't ask here if I really didn't want some real opinions and figure out of all the CMers who read this section, someone has had it happen.

  • i would talk to a doctor to make sure it isn't something other than a zit. if you can't afford to.. zap it with zit cream, lotion it and leave it for a few.

  • I think I would ask your doctor. I could be a small cyst that may need to be removed by a dermatologist, depending on how long its been there. Especially if it isn't painful. Good luck!

  • If it has been there that long, you have to see a doctor - good insurance or not.

  • try popping it and putting some peroxide on it. It will dry it out

  • Maybe you don't realize what I mean about ins. I do not have $200 to walk in the door, let alone treatment costs, at the present time. That's why I asked IF anyone has had this and what they would suggest. I know I should see a doctor! Duh. I can't right now.
