Top 6 Skin - Colored Facial Bump Causes

  1. 1.Wart

    Warts are non-serious skin growths caused by a virus that infects the top layer of the skin. They are contagious. Thus, warts on the face are often spread there by the hands, and vice versa.

    You can try several over-the-counter treatments, including salicylic acid and cryotherapy (freezing). With facial warts, some might be uncomfortable treating it on their own and thus, go to your primary care doctor or dermatologist for professional treatment. All of this said, most warts go away on their own, but less so in adults.

  2. 2.Skin Cyst

    An epidermoid cyst is a closed sac under the skin filled with a cheese-like or oily material. It is caused by trauma or surgery.

    A lipoma is a noncancerous growth of fatty tissue cells. A lipoma can develop in almost any organ of the body although they are most commonly found in the subcutaneous layer just below the skin.

    You do not need treatment for this condition because it is completely benign; however, if the lesion changes at all, a doctor should be consulted. If you would like it removed, a doctor can cut, freeze, or burn it off.
