I've been experiencing this too, especially if I'm picking to the point where I know I'm damaging my skin badly. These things might be keratin plugs ( m.youtube.com/?reload=14&rdm=2cwbjl6rg#/watch?v=F8DdrRV8_g8 ). However, especially since this happens when I'm going too deep, I think these might actually be normal fat deposits under the skin, which should be left alone.

I know what you are talking about - unfortunately I have this desease, too(( Look at the another topic in this forum - "what's under your scabs". I've read several topics on the internet - just google "flashy plugs under skin", "white stretchy plugs", etc. A lot of people have this condition for years, and the doctors are of no help. Please update if you'll be able to find a doctor who will know how to cure that.

Discoid lupus! I finally got diagnosed and have started Plaquenil and high SPF sunblock every day. It has been a life saver! Blood work was done and showed a positive ANA. Cascade test done and showed the lupus. It isn't bugs, fungus, yeast, aliens, mental illness, etc...it's an autoimmune disease with a treatment!
