Brief Answer:
You seem to have milium

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome back,

It seems that you are having milium.

It is not STD.

It is a benign condition. A milium is a small, raised bump on the skin. It is a type of tiny skin cyst filled with a protein called keratin.

Milia are harmless and, in most cases, they will eventually clear by themselves. But, in some people, milia can persist for months or sometimes longer.

Milia may be removed using a fine needle and then squeezing, or pricking, out the contents. No anaesthetic is needed. However, it is not recommended to squeeze or try to treat milia yourself. This can lead to skin damage and scarring or infection.

So, you consult dermatologist. He might remove it with needle. Or may do electrocautery under local anaesthesia.

I hope you got my answer. Still,any query..you may ask.

Thanks.

Brief Answer:
Milum

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

My opinion is that you might have milium after going through history and seeing photo.

Milium is a minute cyst. It is not infection. So, how can it be STD?

Actual diagnosis may be done after consulting dermatologist personally. So, my advice is that you consult dermatologist. The lesion may be other than milium. Then the mode of treatment may be changed.

Ok..

I AM 46. Was prescribed Diane 35 years ago mostly for acne, the larger under the skin cyst type. Usually had one or two at all times. I have no side effects listed except migraines but those are in my family history as well.. Should I try to get off this drug? How? Can I get something else with what has solved the acne problem without the dangers?

I have had a recurrence of cysts on the right side of my body over the past 24 months. The first "lump" was under my right arm, it was just a lump that resolved and was never diagnosed. At the same time, my gallbladder quit functioning. The following year, I was diagnosed with a breast cyst and papilloma in the right breast. This year, in the past 2 months I have had 2 separate cysts, one in my right groin and one in my right armpit, diagnosed as infected hair follicles. Is there any reason all these cysts and growths are occurring on the right side of my body? Is there any connection?
