What's the best thing to put on a spot?

*Not* a cyst, just a small, raised lump - just perhaps what you'd call a run-of-the-mill spot, possibly the type that even non-acne sufferers would get.
I've read so many different 'miracle' cures, would be interesting to see how this poll turns out..
Would be good/helpful if you could briefly explain how you'd apply/use your choice too.

I use the Clean & Clear Blackhead Scrub and it works well to keep me clear of those bumps (and I used to get them ALL the time).
I combine this with BP, but I only use the BP when I actually see/feel a pimple coming up because I, too, am concerned with some of the stories I've heard about BP, although I'm not gonna give it up completely.

What I'm reading a lot about is premature aging with overuse of these products, not only including BP, but also the strong acid peels.
I don't know if they are all true or not, but I am erring on the side of caution and am just trying to use as little of the products as I can to keep things under control, since I do believe that some of my skin damage came from using a very strong glycolic peel from Skin Culture when I was 21.
I do realise that everyone's skin is different and that some people can tolerate a lot more than I can, but since I am also much older (34) than a lot of you on here, I have to take that into account as well.

Fragrance-Free Baby Wipes + a few drops Rimmel Makeup Remover solution
3/4 AHA Toner* & 1/4 Glycerin (cotton pad) -- good toner, moisturizer, and makeup base (use less glycerin if not under makeup)
Occasional Treatments (2-3x/week): Exfoliating bp wash* in shower, 2.5% bp lotion* at night
CoverGirl TruBlend Powder Foundation
* = Klear Action Kit (Pro-Activ knockoff)
Gluten-free diet (for non-acne reasons, but it seems to have cleared my acne)
