I ran out of my normal (high end) foundation- and used a generic for a few days until I made it to the store.
Got a pimple on Friday on the side of my face that HURT. Tried to pop it, even though there was no head. Big mistake-throbbing pain.
Saturday cleaned it kept makeup off it except a few hours. Put hydrogen peroxide on it and tea tree oil. Formed dark spot in the center- thinking it was maybe a back head -tried to pop it. I know you all are thinking LEAVE IT ALONE-
I didn't. I picked at it just got more painful. Cleaned and applied hot compresses and tea tree oil. After I applied it the last time I ended up with not only a HUGE zit, but blisters all around it! It's SOO bad. It's red and purple like I've been hit in the face.
I normally have clear pretty skin. Everyone compliments me. Tomorrow I have to train a huge class of executives at work. At this point I used soap and water to clean it with a sterile pad and covered it with antibiotic ointment hoping tomorrow I am at least able to hide it with makeup or something for my class.
Do I need to see a doctor?
and the pic below that was taken Thursday with no outbreaks
