Brief Answer:
Upload the picture, might be sebaceous cyst

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome.
I have gone through your query.
Since when you have it?
It will be better if you can upload the pictures if possible, I'll go through them, I'll be in better position to provide you with specific advice.

Based on the information it appears to be small sebaceous cyst, ointment mupirocine twice daily for a week will be beneficial but I can only confirm after examination.

This provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.

I hope this suggestion might be of some help to you.
Take care.

There are about 12 of these 'blackheads' , so not a cyst. Sadly I can't take a photo.

Brief Answer:
It might be skin tags or wart, examination required to confirm

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for coming back.
In the absence of the pictures, in my opinion, this could be warts or skin tags. Without an opportunity to see it and physically examine the lesion, I am unable to isolate the cause. Therefore I will suggest you see a doctor/dermatologist as and when feasible.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
