Hi my name is Mandee and I have been expierencing some health issues lately. I am wondering if anyone has ever heard of this and can give me some insight on what it is. I have lately had 4 little lumps that are really hard and look like pencil lead under my skin. They are about the size of a little tiny piece of gravel and I have had them on the back of my knee, stomach, shoulder, and breast. 2 of them got painful and had some very interesting discharge resembling a cyst. I had red streaking from those areas and have taking forvever to heal. My other 2 got painful and ulcerated but I had no discharge. On average it takes about a month or so for each of them to heal. I am getting concerned because once they ulcer they have this wierd little black hair follicle like thing that doesnt come out and then when they scar they grow a weird freckle. I know this is weird and gross but please help me if you know anything.
