Try spot treating them with BP 10% if poss. Put a big blob where the spots are brewing and leave them alone. Because the BP is over the spot it will stop you from touching them. I apply big blobs morning and night but if your going out then put some on when you get in and when you go to bed and it should reduce the size and heal the spot quicker than normal. Also you can ice the spot if it is starting to swell just keep adding ice for to the spots a few seconds at a time for a bout 5 mins and repeat through the day.

Allow me to impart my invaluable wisdom that I have gained over the years to this thread. I shall sip champagne whilst I do so.

A problem such as this requires no treatment until it is well developed, assuming it comes to that. I therefore recommend leaving it completely alone. That means no creams, gels, ice-cubes, or any other dermal application that requires vigorous finger action and pressure. Applying anything at this early stage will have very little effect on it's progress, since the problem lies deep under the skin. Touching it will only increase the chance of it becoming inflamed, especially since one is already able to feel it, due mainly to hard bits rupturing the pore walls.

The optimal time to apply anything is when the head appears closer to the surface, for both inflamed whiteheads and blackheads... again assuming it comes to that.

Note: two liters of cheap champagne have been consumed during the reading of this reply.

Well my spots must be different to everyone else’s then because they never just go away once I feel something tender then it always turns into a spot no matter how carefull I am. I have tried endless things over the years and the 10%, 5% or 2.5% BP has always done the trick it also stops me from touching which is a big no no when a spot is first forming.

i hate these. i feel them coming and i know there's little i can do to stop it since they always form into the big hard bumps that take 1-2 weeks to go away. No head usually for me, just redness all around. Yay.
