Do you have a dermatologist? Sometimes they can inject it to hasten it's healing.

Warm not hot soaks a couple times a day. Gentle cleanser - you don't want to overstrip and irritate your skin.

If they happen pretty frequently you should talk to your Dr about it for medication to keep them under control.

Believe me, lots of us suffered with pimples from [email protected]!! There is medication for them. Benzoyl peroxide could help temporarily but you don't want to use it frequently as it ages the skin terribly. Hope you can see a Dr soon!

You need to see a doctor for this......warm soaks definitely but it may have to be lanced.
Do you get this type of pimple often?

I forgot to add that I use Mario Badescu Drying Cream... u need to use it as soon as the pimple appears....before it gets to this stage. It looks painful so I suggest you get treatment quick.

Coastin-wow I totally sympathize with you. I had cystic acne super bad, but I can say.......I never had one that big. Are you sure it is a pimple? Have you ever had on like this before? And does it ever come to a head, where you can pop it? Does it itch (mine used too).

Some of the biggest ones I ever got were on my chin. They would come and go just as you explained. What I would do is get a washcloth and soak it in a mixture of hot water and epsom salt. Then place it on that spot. See if you can get it to come to a head. Most times, cystic acne is filled with clearish puslike, sometimes bloody fluid. If you can get it to pop a little and get gunk out of it, it will go down. It does take time. And I know it must be extremely painful.

Best of luck and let us know if it goes down a little.

Coastin, ya I was going to say, your skin didn't look like one with a acne problem. So that is why I am asking, are you sure it is a pimple. Maybe if the soaks don't help, get in with your doctor. It could be a boil, but I have never seen one on the face before. It looks painful I do know that!! Been there, done that, so I feel your pain-


Not to mention, how do you cover a zit on the chin, right? You feel like its a third eye-
hang in there, it will get better, I promise.

Doesn't it feel better? I am glad you are getting the gunk out. It should go down in no time-

wow it does look better. It will take time for the redness to go away. I know how you feel. You get one of those guys and you think OH MY GOSH why me.


give it time to fade and before long you will forget you ever had it.

I use Mario's Buffering Lotion when I get a zit like that. I seem to get one a month now. Never got them before. Of course I have to meddle with them an make matters way worse. i can't help it.

I'm getting nauseous thinking about watching you tube videos of people squeezing zits. I love doing it myself but strangers. I'm literally feeling sick right now but I'm soooo curious!!!! how sick is that???
