I have had an unusual pimple problem for over 3 months with my skin on my face.
It appears as though something is burrowing in my skin. It is very hard to remove, and when I do, it leaves a hole at least 1/8" and bleeds.
Before removal I can see that it is a small white hard thing, that is nearly impossible to remove. I have often had to leave it in rather than risk destroying my skin.
Recently, I removed a scab from my cheek, and when I pulled it off, it come off in a circular piece that I actually hear it rip off my face. I did not experience any pain however.
When I examined it there were little round egg-like things attached to the skin that I removed, about 4 or 5. They were hard but it appeared soft inside.
Yesterday I gave myself a facial. I smothered the product on my face, then covered with plastic wrap and a hot towel.
When doing extractions, I removed what looked like a sebaceous plug. It came out very easy, but then that old familiar bleeding started and again a hole.
I put hydrogen peroxide on it and another blemish, and the hole kept foaming white and began to burn. The other normal blemish did not. The same thing happened tonight.
I went to the doctors and was treated like I was imagining it.
They seem to come in a wave and then disappear for weeks. At one point I had 4 at one time, and they leave scars.
I am desperate to figure this out. Any ideas?
This certainly does sound like an unusual pimple problem. It's the type of condition that can be very difficult to determine the underlying cause.
If it were a parasite in the skin of your face, I would expect it to be fairly constant rather than coming and going.
That's not to eliminate parasites altogether, but rather less likely that it is skin parasites. Intestinal parasites and fungus (candida) is another matter entirely.
Do you have any other health conditions? It doesn't have to seem related, but you'd be surprised how many various unrelated symptoms can all be tied to a single underlying problem.
Do you have any trouble with constipation or diarrhea? Digestive problems like indigestion, bloating, etc.? Joint pain, fingernail or toenail fungus, rashes of any sort elsewhere on the body?
I ask these questions to help better understand what may be an underlying root cause.
My first instinct is to guess that your unusual pimples on your face may be your body's reaction to too many toxins in your system. They may be environmental toxins that have built up or toxins created in your body from a parasite infection in your intestinal tract.
The way the body works is that there are different organs that help to filter the toxins in our system and eliminate them.
Sometimes, the amount of toxins become so great that the body experiences toxic overload. For instance, if the liver can't process the toxic waste products quickly enough, it often sends them to your skin. Various skin conditions are often caused by an overworked liver that desperately needs a break.
I've found that many people have success at getting rid of skin conditions by giving their body a natural cleanse and detox. It's easy enough to do, and the results speak for themselves.
There are 3 things I'd suggest you try that, in my opinion, would give you the best chance of getting to the root of the problem and eliminating it:
- I'd start with cleansing the colon/intestines by using Herbal Fiberblend twice per day. Mix 1 tsp. - 1 tbsp. in some grape juice morning and evening and drink plenty of water and your body will do the rest. I generally recommend a 3 month cleanse to most people and I'd say the same in your case so that you get the benefit of a thorough detox.
- The second thing I'd do is start taking at least one probiotic capsule per day. These are the good bacteria that live in your body and help control and eliminate the bad guys. These are the only 3 probiotics to choose from that I would recommend for good quality...
- Finally, I would suggest that you consider adding the Garden Trio to your daily diet. Basically, the Garden Trio is three whole food powders made from freshly juiced carrots, beets, and barley grass. It's easily reconstituted in water or juice and gives your body an amazing amount of nutritional support, enabling your body to have the tools it needs to heal.
I'm particularly interested in you taking the beets, called Redibeets, in your situation, because beets are a wonderful natural cleaner for the liver. I've had other people share their stories of long time skin conditions being completely healed through this process, so it's definitely worth trying.
It's not always 'quick and easy' to get rid of a problem that has built up in our system, especially when we have difficulty identifying the underlying cause. Even something as seemingly minor as an unusual pimple that keeps recurring and causing distress and scarring, needs cleansing and healing time.
To get rid of the scars you've already developed on your face, apply some Vitamin E oil a couple of times per day until they go away. You can get some for just a few dollars at Puritan's Pride
I hope that you are able to use some of this information to make a real difference in your life. Let me know when you get rid of this unusual pimple problem and if I can be of further help. To your good health!
