I have had bad acne for almost a year and have been treating it for five months with no success, it s actually getting worse. Just recently I have developed dime sized puss sacks on my skin , and some turn black underneath the skin. I decided to pop one, and white puss and blood came out, I proceeded to pop it and blood mixed with some kind of black liquid came out. Does anyone know what this black substance could be, and is it normal? I have had black heads, and this I assure you is not a black head.
Hi,thanks for query.It is possible that it might not be a pimple but sebaceous cyst.It is a bag like structure and contains jelly like substance.When gets infected if gets swollen with black point in it and gives rise to pain and discomfort.For your acne there are antibiotics tablets that you need to take on weekly basis for 6-8 weeks,please talk to your doctor about this.Avoid oily food,wash your face frequently.bye.
