hi guys and girls,i have been looking at this forum for a number of years now and it has helped me in so many ways!!!ive finally plucked up the courage to join,i know u lot r good at what u do so can anyone help me on this one??basically,i first found one a year ago,description : no bigger than a grain of rice,white in colour,shaped like a tiny tiny onion,i first found one on my chest which looked like a blackhead so i tried popping it and this hard tiny thing popped out,i thought it might be some kind of bug but i was wrong,when i split it open with my nail it was hollow inside,almost like a pod of skin.i also found one on my right kneecap and one on my left side of my groin,not a major issue but every so often im finding these lil things.any ideas???
Strange seed like lumps coming out of my skin
Welcome to the boards.As for your question... hmm you have me stumped I think, having a hard time visualizing what you are talking about. Have you brought it up to your doctor? If not it might not be a bad idea, if nothing else it will give you peace of mind.Sorry I know I was probably not much help.

Most likely a plugged pore where the sebum has hardened.
I agree with sdp, and I get them from time to time, though mine aren't hollow.
you could post a pic so we can see it, sounds odd, being hollow and all.
This Shits The Shit
May have been a harder outside with a soft middle. I doubt it was hollow.
Sounds like molluscum to me. Its caused by a virus. A dermatologist can remove them but they are for the most part harmless.

ok thanks guys,next time i find one i will take a pic!!they arent painful or anything,just a bit freaky when u dont know what they are.
damnit, i got one on my chest..just above my nipple..only 1..i didnt even care about it until i read this post, arrrrgh
what effects did u have from trying to remove it? heal properly etc..no red bloodclots or nuttin...they not like moles tho
they aint raised..so i dont know how u done it without piercing it with summit sharp
its just like a white pigment in the skin
ah cool so im not the only one!! i had one above my left nipple,i thought it was a blackhead and that popped out.i slit mine on the table with my thumbnail and it was like a baloon basically hollow inside but tough,tiny thing tho.left a nice small hole in my chest tho.really wierd huh,next time u get one bud take a photo as i barely ever find them!!!
damn, wish u replied sooner, i went a head and tried to get rid of it, i knew i shudnt but im too weak and cant resist.
i found another 2 on my cheast and leg, ill take a pic when i can.
please tell me how long ago u done ures, and if its healed atall..i seriously need to know if i just made things worse for myself once again
it was flat..i pushes it together as u wud with a spot..and it raised up then..it was so soft..it just..i dunno lol, didnt pop or split..just dissapeared the white, instead im left with a red circle, problem is i dont think skin will heal hard over it..to come off and reveal clean and clear skin.i may end up with having it forever..thnx god i didnt do them all.
im gonna give it a few days to see if it goes down cuz its a bit inflared around it..then see if it heals or not.
i belive they may be caused by a razors..its exactly where a root of a hair wud be...i can see it infact..and i dont got much chest hair..i know for certain this white mark is where a strand of hair was. why it occurs tho is beyond me.
its deffinetly not molluscum, i just search it on google, and the results r frightening
