What treatment should I take for white bumps on the chest and back which when popped emit whitish gray substance ?
There are weird white bumps on my chest and back. If I pop them they either are a white or grayish skin-like substance. The substance is soft when it is white and firm when they are grayish. Sometimes they leave craters black if I don t remove them correctly. I ve been told that my father used to have it, and it is very embarassing. I NEED HELP. How do I treat this CORRECTLY?
welcome to HCM.
You may be having Keratosis pilaris.
Start using a moisturizer and a keratolytic agent to reduce the lesions.
Please see a dermatologist for accurate diagnosis and prescription
