Anthony Bray, MD : Hello!
Anthony Bray, MD : NO!! Your back pimple is not related to your vertebrae!
Anthony Bray, MD : You may have a simple boil or could have a sebaceous cyst...
Thank you - I figured that was a little "far out"! Just curious.
Anthony Bray, MD : You may get an infection that gets down into a pore and gets a foothold at any point in life... This may produce the smal pimple or somewhat angrier and larger boil...
Anthony Bray, MD : at times the glands that produce oils for the hairs of the skin may become trapped under the skin and build up a cyst of this material over time .
Anthony Bray, MD : such a cyst can be large and stubborn. They may or may not be infected as well...
Anthony Bray, MD : So if the place is concerning my large, red, tender then don't hesitate to get your doctor's help with it...
Anthony Bray, MD : Sometimes a sebaceous cyst will benefit from excision and a round of antibiotic to get it cleared up...
It was certainly stubborn, but gone now. Thank you very much.
Anthony Bray, MD : I hope this is helpful for you!
Anthony Bray, MD : hopefully your pimple or boil or other will not be much trouble to you!
Very. Again, thank you. It's not fair to have to use acne cream and wrinkle cream at the same time!
Anthony Bray, MD : You are very welcome!
Anthony Bray, MD : best regards!
