Basically i get these big bumps on my skin under my beard which like swell up with puss, i then squeeze them and the shoot out the puss but then a few weeks later fill up again.i have lots of these lil bumps aswell as a few big ones here and there do you know what these are or how to get ride of them? it think they start to scar as well
JA: The Dermatologist can help. To begin, when did the bumps first appear? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: Well i dont know if it is related but a few years back i used minoxidil to help grow my beard. but once my beard grew i always had these problems
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a dermatologist about the bumps?
Customer: i haven't no
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: no i dont think so

This seems like a nodulo-cystic acne

You need a moistuurizer and Limecycline

That will help in clearing the rash

Please do let me know if you have any other question
