Acne or molluscum?
Dec 24, 2003
How can you tell the difference between acne and molluscum?

I have a patch of bumps on my forehead. They are painless, but sometimes mildly itchy. There is some mild redness around the area. They are small, raised, round-shaped bumps about a milimeter or two in diameter. They are smooth and skin colored, and seem "soft". However, if I scratch or tear open one of the bumps, sometimes it oozes a whitish pus while other times, it seems dry and all that comes out is a little grain of whitish/yellowish waxy substance, and may bleed a tiny bit. Also, in the center of each bump there is a tiny hole.

Thanks alot in advance for all the help.
