Sebaceous Cyst

Acne appears in part because the pores get clogged.  Basically speaking, generally speaking, your skin is always actually creating more sebum.  Normally, it flows out of the skin on its own to moisturize.  However, when your skin produces too much sebum, it will dry and get caught, and it will eventually over time clog the pores.  It then catches bacteria and creates more acne.  However, sometimes, it gets worse. 

Sometimes, you get a sebaceous cyst, which is an oil gland that has developed quite abnormally and is therefore causing even greater inflammation and otherwise.  It fills with fatty material and creates a sac.  It is a tumor, and it appears on areas outside the neck, scalp, or face.  It may not go away for months or even years on its own, but it may eventually go away over time and with the right efforts.  It can be the size of a pea or the size of an orange, and it’s usually pink or purple.  It can feel a variety of different ways, and frankly, it’s advisable in general terms to remove it.  You can talk to your dermatologist and generally speaking get it surgically removed.  This is good for both cosmetic and other purposes in general.
