I love the smell of sebum in the morning
About 10 years ago I had a really sore spot on my back, just on my belt line. It got to be a red angry lump, as if I had a golf ball implanted under the muscle. It was just in the part of my back where I couldn't get a good look at it/reach it to have a squeeze, so I went to the docs.

He took a look and said it was an infected sebaceous cyst - a fucking bit zit - and he'd have to lance it.

Now, we all like to squeeze zits when we're on our own, don't we? He got a small scalpel to open a hole and then spend a good 15 minutes squeezing evil-smelling nameless blood-smeared yellowish goo out of it. In between my yelps of pain, I could almost hear him grinning. I looked round and yes, he was grinning like a kid who'd got both a blonde, a brunette and a bearded Action Man from different indulgent relatives all at the same birthday.

After my back had coughed out the last lumps of matter, he taped me back up and actually shook me hand and thanked me and said "That was fun - I needed that after the day I've had".

I should have been weirded out but somehow it felt like I'd done him a good turn.

I had one of them once
On the back of my neck, just where my hairline starts.

The doc spent a good 15 minutes squeezing my neck, he even had to take a breather at one point as he was getting tired.

The worst part of it was the god-awful smell. It was only subsequently that i discovered it was identical to Sure For Men Original deodorant - the smell turns my stomach instantly

I get them on my scalp frequently
I think I've had about ten surgically removed now, which is a minor procedure. But once I had one which went septic and burst. It was incredibly satisfying to squeeze out a big gob of pus followed by yellow gunge which came out like toothpaste from a tube!

Damn thing never healed up though and I had to have it excised after a while.

I had one too
But I only let the Doctor do a couple of squeezes. I said "I think i could probably do that myself".
