They arent the stretchy plugs....they aren't connective and tend to be possibly within the scar tissue. My scars heal without pulling down. But you might be onto something....i think they are formed during the imflammatory stage of healing but stay there and are basically in the way of any ability of the upper skin to knit to the lower layers. I have various issues within my sores....white plugs, gelatinous crystals, rubbery semi-opaque pebble plugs and ones in the shape of spirals within and around hairs. What exactly do you get?

Look up "skin calcium deposits" on Google. I didn't know about this condition until recently. It looks like acne but I guess the calcium inside is hard.

Also called calcinosis cutis. It's interesting.

It is interesting, and I've looked into it previously. I would assume they're hard, mine are not. Still searching, but for sure there is a response to injury as well. Thanks for the info tho.....
