I have had this pimple like thing on the middle of my back for over half a year, it a bit red, but it also pops like a pimple if put on enough pressure. Hard stringy white stuff comes out, but only my sister can get it to pop. Anyone else couldn't get it. What worrys me is that we've pop it like 6 times. And it still there. If I don't get it pop it gets bigger. I would assume it was a bug bite, but come on over 6 months of this? And when I pop pimples on my body they go away. But this one won't. Anyone can help me?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the pimple that you describe without examining it (for determining other characteristics to aid in diagnosis). Avoid any self manipulation. Possible causes include furunculosis, sebaceous cyst, etc. Visit your doctor/healthcare provider for further evaluation and assistance. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating doctor/healthcare provider, and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
