Odd acne.

I never had a problem with acne. My skin has always been clear (if you don't count the five gazillion freckles). I do get the occasional bright star shining from my face, usually during that time of the month, but unless it's on the tip of my nose, I shrug it off.

I got one today. On the tip of my elbow. My elbow? Wtf?
It's much more annoying than one might think. Everytime I bend my arm I feel it, and it hurts! Maybe I moisturize too much or something?

Where the heck do you have "five gazillion freckles"? I have never one in any of your pictures. And they are good thing, so I wouldn't count them in this case.

The spot I really hate getting one is on my eyebrow. There is a nerve that runs through there that make me sneeze when I feel pain from something touching.

Zits vs. cysts:

Zits are generally associated with clogged sebaceous glands. The elbow and most of the arm have sebaceous glands, but they aren't as active as areas of the face, back and chest.

What you probably have is a localized bacterial infection that is causing the area arround a hair follicle to clog. Somtimes, it's a case of the root becoming infected.

Treat with heat, this opens up the pore and allows debris to come to the surface and can be removed. Use hydrogen peroxide to dry it out.

Oh, and call your Aunt Carolyn about Christmas....fer heavens sake!!!
