I am developing small, white, circular scars along my jawline and lower sides of my face. Additionally, I get an occasional eruption but not just like a teenage pimple eruption. It starts out as an uncomfortable, red, raised nodule and progresses throughout the day (like a pimple). They appear singularly on my face or under my chin down toward the front and sides of my neck. The only difference is; when I squeeze it, cause I have to so it's less uncomfortable, a hard core-like whitish root comes out along with the usual. Sorry that's unpleasant. But only to reappear a couple of more times and then when the inflammation goes down, it's a scarred area but under the skin as a small nodule.

What's up with that?! Does menopause have anything to do with it?
