Small pimple on back. Itchy, turns into welt, forms a scab and goes away. Due to ingrown hair follicle?
Hello, I get a small blind pimple on my lower back, the size of a pin head. It is itchy and within two or three days, it turns into a welt, (sore and sometimes oozy), it develops a large scab and then eventually goes away. I get this from time to time. The only thing I can think of is an ingrown hair folicle. Can you elaborate?
Small itchy pimple like thing over the lower back can be pilonodial sinus which is due to embedded hair follicle.it can be cured by only surgery .it is by removing hair follicle embedded by creating a crater
