It’s been happening for a few months. The current one has been there 5 days. I have not done anything to treat them. I don’t have them anywhere else. I am 50. I have no other medical problems.

Thank you for that additional information and picture

Expert:  wieyedoc replied 4 months ago.

It sounds like what you are suffering from is something called an eccrine hidrocystoma. This is a fancy name for, basically, a plugged up sweat gland.

These can occur in many places on your body but are more common on the face.

If "popped" they tend to come back....

So. What can you do?

The best course of action is to consult with a dermatologist so you can get a definitive diagnosis. Treatment may consist of prescription strength medication and/or excision.

Does this make sense to you?
