So awhile back I used a razor to shave my chest, BAD IDEA. After the little bumps with yellow puss went away I noticed some of them didn't, and I found out they were ingrown hairs, so I tried some home remedies on removing them, and while I did get rid of some of them I noticed these "pimple" like bumps started forming in those areas.
My grandfather told me there were still some ingrown hairs and he tried to get them out, but I think he just made it worse. *sigh*
Now I have a few of these bumps on my chest, and they won't seem to go away. They don't hurt or anything, they're just there. There are SOME hairs on top that I've tried to remove, but it doesn't seem to be helping. Sometimes when I squeeze them those little "squiggly" things will come out, but that's all. I looked online and I read about how cysts could be caused from ingrown hairs or bursting a blood vessel (which my mom told me I might've done while trying to remove the ingrown hairs), so I figured that's what they could be.
I actually had something VERY similar to these on the back of my shoulder. One of my left, and one on my right. Although they just kinda showed up on their own. It wasn't a result of shaving or anything, and they didn't have hairs on them, but they eventually went away on their own. I remember someone telling me they came from lifting heavy things.
I'm going to see a doctor about them soon, but I just wanted to get an idea of what they were so I could go ahead and let the doctor know, and figure out how to get rid of them.
