So I don't know if I have cystic acne or what the hell it is but now it's only in the area under my lips like on the left and side of my chin and it's been there for about 2 years now. I think it's just that for some reason that certain area won't let my damn facial hair come through. I'll get a pimple, 2 or 3 and tell myself okay once these go away I'll be fine and clear and then I literally get a new one as soon as they go away it's pretty interesting. I take doxycycline, which my idiot doctor wasn't able to refill my prescription the other day so I'm going to go about a week off of it, lets see how this goes! So there's some background info.
My reason for posting this is that it seems that every time I put 10% BP on one of the red bumps it quickly turns it into a whitehead and then I am able to rub it with hot water and push out the puss with my tongue from in the inside or just squirm my face around until puss comes out. I've found that that is the best way to get rid of pimples without popping them too for everyone out there!!!
So does BP cause whiteheads? It definitely doesn't make any of my pimples go away, it just turns them into white heads. Anyone know anything? Also, should you put BP on a pimple after it's been popped? I usually tend not to if I can't see any white bacteria in the pimple anymore.
