I had a small red bump pop up on the front of my left breast about 24 hours ago. There was not white head, but I tried to pop it and now today it's swollen and bright red. It's not really painful unless I squeeze it. Does anybody know what this is?

Can you push the "crap" inside of a pimple back under the skin if you try to squeeze it too soon? And don't tell me to ask my doctor. I have a $5,000 deductible.

Maybe try a hot compress and see if it pulls the rest of the puss or whatever it is out.

It's probably just a zit. Treat it like you would any other one. And don't try to squeeze it again.

That is hard for me lol! I'm a picker. I can't stand to see a bump or ingrown hair. I have to pop it. Gah! Why do I do this to myself?!

Put band aid on it. First put a gob of Vicks rub on it though.

That's really creepy! 

Because yesterday a red bump popped up on the upper part of my areola on my right breast and I had no idea what it is! These answers will help me! :) thanks!

I put neosporin and a bandaid on it just now. Which now brings me to my next concern. Is it ok to use neosporin after it's expired? :) I just realized the tube says expires 01/2015 so it's just expired, but still.

It should be fine. Vicks will pull any infection to the surface unlike Neosporin though.
