What is this on my face

Hi guys

I developed what I thought was a spot between my eyebrows just above the corner of my left eye. I had a spot there a couple of times quite painful but it always went after a couple of weeks. It came back a couple of months ago and was more painful then before. It really developed into a big spot and I resisted the temptation to touch it. Eventually pus came out of it and the spot went down. But there now there is like a raised bump. I wouldnt mind as much but because of where it is people can spot it straight away. I didn't pick or squeeze but it definately a raised lump.

If I was my face, it still looks angry and never really settles down. Is this a scar or a white head. Will it go?

Any ideas as it isnt nice.

Re: What is this on my face

It could be a number of things: a mole, a wart (but if you were able to squeeze stuff out, it probably isn't), or an overactive oil gland. My boyfriend had something very similar and the doctor used liquid nitrogen to remove it. The doctor said "If it disappears, then it was probably a wart...but if it reappears, its an overactive oil gland". It reappeared a week or two later.

I guess your best bet is to see a dermitologist about it.
