I am 36 year old female and have developed two lesions on my face that won't heal. One is on my cheek and one is on my chin. They have tiny hard white seed like things that I have to use tweezers to pull out and seem very deep (if I get the entire seed out, it will bleed a little). The only thing that comes out of the lesions when I squeeze them is a lot of clear fluid. I have never had any kind of skin problems and can't figure out how to get these to heal or what they are..I have had them at least two weeks now.
