Tender Pimples

3 posts in this topic

I have very tender pimple forming on my cheek. It hurts when I apply pressure to it. I dont think its a whitehead, maybe a pustule or papule. Any ideas for treatment????

Ice can help reduced redness and inflamation, and may help reduce the size of the developing pimple. You can put the ice in a plastic baggie if you don't want to put it directly on your skin. Ice the spot for a few minutes 2-3 times a day, and maybe spot treat it overnight with BP or sulfur.

Oh, and taking an anti-inflamatory pain killer can help as well (Aleve works well for me)


A.M.

-Face Reality Sensitive Skin Cleansing Gel

-Finacea

-MD Formulations AOX Hydrating Gel and/or MD Formulations AOX Lotion (on drier areas)

-Mix a few drops of Niacinamide Gel with Face Reality's SPF 30 for Acne Prone Skin

P.M.

-Face Reality Silica scrub

-Derm A Gel 2 out of 3 nights, PTR Unwrinkle Peel Pads every 3rd night

-Mix Face Reality Hydrating Emulsion with Metazine Niacinamide Gel

*Spot treat any inflamed lesions with Aczone
