From: Can Bp Stop An Under-Skin (Upcoming) Zit I Can Feel?

1,825 views

i can feel a bump under the skin and its slightly red (the skin above) but its not yet a zit as such.

i think its hormonal(i noticed it just before that day but may be its been forming for a while unnoticed).

i had applied(spot treated) that area of under-skin bump benzoyl peroxide(3.5% aqueous gel that i have)

i mean to apply it again,say twice a day or more.

will it help stop the zit from forming?

does BP stop upcoming zits/cysts(small)/bumps from forming/coming up to surface?

It can prevent acne from forming if you use it continuously by keeping your pores from becoming clogged. Sounds like you have a cyst forming in which case you would want it to come to a head, it's much more difficult to treat acne that stays under the skin. My experience with using BP and cysts though is that it is a slow process, BP will slowly dry up the cyst but even then sometimes it leaves a bump under the skin. The hope is that following the regimen will help prevent new acne from forming. For cystic acne you should try using BP during the day and either aha or a retinol at night to speed up the cellular turnover, helps a lot with those under the skin ones. I would spot treat at night mixing the bp with one of those two though.

thank you for commenting.

actually,its not a huge cyst that i suspect but i would definitely call it a bump under the skin that if comes to surface would become a nodule.

i dnt use anything on my whole face except for faceclin gel(clindamycin + nicotinamide gel) as spot treatment.

i've got this pustule on my right cheek now(it was a clogged pore for almost a year now)

and last night i saw a reddish area and while cleansing when i touched it felt like a small bump under the skin.

i applied bp at night.

this is the elaborate story,

my question actually is

if i keep applying bp and faceclin(twice a day as usual) will the acne still come to surface and become a full fledged zit?

damn i have trip tomorrow on.

p.s could u please check the source thread, for everyone to see ur opinion.

i have quoted you there!

thanks.

For cysts you should try amoxicillin or cephalexin-both are transformative oral antibiotics.
