I have spots all over my body, prominently on the back of my arms and chest. I have a habit of picking them and white stuff comes out when I do. They are also all over my scrotum and the sides of my shaft (penis). They appear to be where hairs are, but my dermatologist ruled out folliculitis through taking a sample. One of them appears to be swollen, but is hard when I touch it and cannot be popped. It looks sore and is a bit painful. What should I do?
