In some cases, minor skin problems such as pimples, cysts, and lumps can become more serious issues that warrant a professional visit. For example:
Cyst or lump: Sometimes what looks like a pimple can be a cyst or lump under the skin. These growths can vary in size and contain different types of tissue, such as fluid or solid material.
Infection: An infected pimple or follicle can spread and sometimes cause more serious complications if not treated properly.
Foreign body: Sometimes a subcutaneous bump is caused by a foreign body under the skin. It can be debris, debris, or previously unnoticed damage.
Skin conditions: Some skin conditions, such as sebaceous cysts or epidermal cysts, may resemble acne, but contain different substances and require special treatment.
Inflammatory response: Sometimes the body’s inflammatory response to infection, irritation, or other problems can cause lumps or bumps that may not look like acne.
It should be emphasized that medical diagnoses and conditions can be very different, and what is revealed by a doctor’s examination depends on various factors. If you or someone you know is concerned about a skin problem or disease, it is best to seek the advice of a qualified healthcare professional. They can provide accurate information, diagnosis and appropriate treatment based on the specific situation.
