Patient :I had a pimple on my back and after i squeezed it, I did it too much and there was a wound. The scab formed on top of it, but it never fully healed and was very painful on touch. I scratched the scab off and there was some small white balls attached to it and more of them inside the wound. It was a month ago and every time I get the white balls out of the wound, it stops hurting and scab forms nicely in a matter of hours, but it has grown to a diameter of 1cm already by removing the white balls. What are these?
