have a question. when i was about 3 years old my mom discovered a ball in my back around where my armpit is at, so she took me to the doctor & they discovered it was a tumor. luckily it wasn't a dangerous kind and were able to remove it. i am now 22 years old and my concern for now is that around my scar there is acne looking bumps around it, but they're not acne they have puss and sometimes a bit of blood, but its not nasty looking puss. i've tried popping them thinking that once i do they'll disappear but they just keep coming back. now my question is "is there any way i can get rid of them?" over the years i've became a bit insecure about it i won't wear shirts that will show it because i just get really insecure. i haven't gone to see a dermatologist because i know they are pretty pricey & i also have no insurance just in case i would be able to get covered. so any advice?
