    Unhappy Weird "hole" on my cheek

    Hello
    this is my first post on this forum and wasnt quite sure where to post this.
    I have a weird "hole" on the side of my face, it has been there for a few years and if I squeeze the area around it sometimes Puss will come out. the area around it I can quite easily pull my beard hairs out of and slightly less hair grows on that area. Any idea what this might be?
    Thanks in advance

    It could be an enlarged pore. If there's some pus coming out there might be an infection. I'd get it checked out by a dr.

    It is quite deep, and I have had it for a few years, I think it might be a Sebaceous cyst but there is no visible lump. I went to a doctor once when It became a bit red and he gave me a tube of "bactroban" but it didnt help at all

    Cyst are quite noticeable in some way. If you can't see it, you can feel it! I've had one. They're sort of firm. I think you'd be able to tell if it was a cyst. If its large, then the sac would be.

    It does sound like an enlarged pore and the reason you get pus in it is because when you have a pore that is large and open like that it will get bacteria in it.
