Do you think it could be acne? Would you mind posting a picture? I would feel better if my doc said it was fine, but it never hurts to get a second opinion. Even if they are harmless, you should ask what they are.

they are abcesses. 

i had three seperate opinions, one from a dr who said leave it alone after i popped the first one. 

the second one was so painful i ended up in the er, they popped it and did a culture, went to the dr the next day, and they said nothing was wrong.

i'm just letting you know....those can pick up MRSA really easily, so if you get another one, you'll want it treated asap...
