Pus filled spots, hard lump comes out on pressing. Is it spot nucleolus?

HI, when I squeeze a spot, after the initial puss, there is sometimes a little white hard lump that comes out at the end. When one of the hard lumps doesn t come out, the spot doesn t heal. But when they do, the spot clears up the next day. I want to know what the hard lump is? I ve been calling it a spot neucleous for as long as I can remember. Thanks in advance.

Where is the lump on your body? How long it is been there? These are the most important queries I have. Do you smell bad out of this pus.

This white lump is again the sebum if it is on the skin and its layers. It could be a sebaceous cyst. you can get it excised by the local doctor. stop squeezing as it can cause bacteria to enter the cyst and cause more problems.
