I can't believe how many other people have this!! I'm 17 years old and I've been getting these things since I was about 14. They are exactly how Lynz (sp?) described. Lucky, they haven't spread to my armpits YET, and I'm hoping they don't. They're so painful and I have no idea what to do about them. I'm scheduled for a biopsy soon. I've heard people say 'don't shave' and 'wear loose clothes' but it's hard to find clothes that aren't tight when you're 17!! I couldn't run when I had soccer practice because it hurt me so bad. I'm embarrassed with the whole guy situation too..the scars and dark purple like you guys said and it's embarrassing even for me to look at. Do you guys know anything else that can help the pain??
