Wa'alaikumsalaam. Hello, good afternoon Nisa ..
Lumps on the face can be caused by the following conditions:
warts. Warts are abnormal growths on the skin caused by infection with the HPV virus (Human papillomavirus). Types of warts that grow on the face are filiform warts and flat warts.
skin tag (elevation of the skin due to skin degeneration)
Molluscum contagiosum, which is a skin infection caused by a virus characterized by the growth of rather hard nodules the size of green beans on the surface of the skin.
You need to note that skin diseases are very difficult to diagnose without being examined directly by a doctor, because skin diseases have their characteristics that can only be distinguished through direct observation. Besides that, each skin disease also has a different treatment. Therefore, we recommend that you first check with a dermatologist to determine what disease you are experiencing, whether it is true warts or other diseases. After the diagnosis is known, then the doctor will provide appropriate treatment with your diagnosis.
While waiting for your doctor's schedule, here are some suggestions from us for your complaint:
do not touch or squeeze the lump of skin
do not apply any creams, ointments, or medications without consulting a doctor
Avoid friction on lumps
keep your hands clean after touching the lump
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
