In the last few days I have developed a huge lump under my skin - just to the side of my chin. It's not a spot (has no head or anything), but it's about 1cm wide by 1.5cm long and it really hurts.
I can feel another one coming up on the side of my nose now - what is happening?
I get spots every now and then - but these are giant lumps!

Have you been in the sun a lot recently?

overthinking Thu 27-Jun-13 21:29:48

No, not at all (don't think we've had any sun tbh!)

Where in your cycle are you? Could be hormone related?

I've just come on yesterday, so could be, although it's never happened before. I'm flummoxed confused

Have you started using any new beauty products? Dehydrated? Massive sugar binge?

Not that I can think of - the only thing that has been different is that I had a tummy upset last week??? But I drink about 1.5-2 litres of water a day (DH had kidney stones so we both started drinking lots more water smile )

Cystic acne. Hormonal and the work of the devil <helpful>

Actually, if its just a couple of the buggers, acne might be over egging it but defo cystic spots.

Yup - cystic acne. The only thing that sorts my skin out when I have an attack is a course of Erythromycin antibiotics.
