She had one at first now its 3 she had it for a couple of months i wasnt concern because i thought it was go .go away
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the input.

Those can be swelling of glands.

Blockage of ducts of sebaceous glands can cause swelling of the glands.

They are usually not harmful.

You can apply warm moist compress over them.

It can disappear on their own.

I hope this information will be helpful.

What cause them ? What can i use to getrid of them faster? They are small but if i try to pop them they bleed
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

Blocked duct can be the factor.

Do not pop them.

If they get larger, then laser treatment by dermatologist can be done.

How did she get them ?
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

If the pore of the hair follicle is damaged, it can be blocked by skin debris or there can be overgrowth of cells causing the bumps.
