What can be done to get rid of large fluid filled pockets on

Customer Question

What can be done to get rid of large fluid filled pockets on the back of the neck. They come and go and are not always in the same place. They get caught by the barbers clippers and are annoying. Thank you
JA: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?
Customer: This is not my problem but my son who is 38 and has had these since he was in High School. I don't believe there is any numbness or tingling. He does have oily skin.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of.

Hello and welcome I'm Doctor Chip

Can you please tell me more about these pockets and what kind of fluid is filling them?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Bloody. I am assuming they are similar to what I had when I was younger and that fluid had a stickiness to it.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 7 months ago.

And how large are they?

And has he ever had any kind of treatment for them?
