    Is this acne, or something else?

    For several months now I have had a very large pimple come out on the right side of my nose, right above that nostril. It will last for a week or two, then disappear only to reappear within a few weeks (it is back right now). It is very hard, sore and red (I have been prone to mild acne and have had oily skin for most of my life). Does anyone have any idea what this could be? Is it just a more severe acne leision? What can I do to speed up the healing? I use Neutrogena Acne wash twice daily, an oil free moisturizer and only oil free make-up. I also made a paste of baking soda and water and put it on there tonight for awhile. I am not sure if that will help at all, but I want it GONE!

    TIA!

    Nancy

    Well i had that as well except i had like two on my chin and two (cyst) on my forehead which will last a week and then come back again a week or two later in the same place. Well the problem was there was like bacteria or something?? Not sure and so the dr put me on accutane. I've been on accutane for 3 weeks and my skin has gone so much better!! I've tried everything before and it did nothing. You have to fix the problem internally. Because all i did was try to get rid of it by using things topically. They'll get rid of it temporarily but then it'll grow back again.
