Skin colored bumps on nose, acne scars or hereditary benign growth. Causes for bumps?

I have 2 skin colored bumps on my nose . One on the bridge just below where the bone part stops and another on the side of my right nostril . A plastic surgeon said they were raised acne scars but a dermatologist told me it was some benign growth that is hareditary ( but no one in my extended or imidiate family has them). But they are really bothering me and am scared of them getting bigger. I think the one on my nostril has been there for a couple of years and the one on the nose bridge has been there for a few months. I am 19 and male

I think your are talking about skin colored tags, these are almost benign and can occur at any part of the body. These are harmless except for cosmetic reasons.

No need to worry about them. But if you don't want them then go for removal by laser technique which will not leave scar.
