I have these red bumps on my back and they are mainly on the right side. At first i thought they were blackheads but i couldnt pop them. They have been on my back for years. Can someone identify them and help me to treat it?
they arent painful. they are about the size of the tip of an unsharpened pencil. i havent tried poping them lately but they seem pretty solid. They are mostly on the right side of my back . i would say they cover about 10 percent of my back.
Meanswing, those are definitely not acne lesions. What you seem to have is a tendency to produce fibrous accumulations, which can even have a genetic origin. As you don't know the causes or the possible implications of your problem, don't wait for more lesions to appear: look for a dermatologist, find out what is producing those bumps, and treat them once and for all!
