What is this big blackhead on my nose of which water comes out when popped out ?

I have something that looks like a big blackhead on my nose, but it is not a blackhead. I cant pop it normally so I take a sterile needle and pop it. Clear water comes out of it, and after a few days it comes back to the way it used to be before i poped it. What is this? How do I get rid of it? Please help I am a female, 20 years old. These kind of blackheads usually appear over summer, but this one remained. I know this isn t acne but I didn t know where else to put it.

Hello,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. It can be a sebaceous cyst. It is a small bump that occur just beneath the skin surface and is common on the face and upper trunk. It can be filled with a cheese-like or oily material as well. Placing a warm moist cloth (compress) over the area may help the cyst drain and heal.

If the cyst becomes swollen, tender, or large, your doctor may surgically remove it. Hope it helps you. Regards.

Hi!,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
probably its a sebaceous hyperplasia or a sebaceous cyst...there is more chance of it being a sebaceous hyperplasia which appears as skin colored raised lesion and on puncturing, it oozes clear fluid..You need a laser treatment for it ..so consult a good dermatologist who is equipped with lasers also.
take care,
Dr.chawda
