My face had a pretty deep clogged pore on my lower right jawline, and needless to say, I initially pinched it/poked at it. It got red and somewhat more inflamed. I tried to calm it down the past couple days, and I've made it worse.
I really made it worse last night by putting hydrogen peroxide on the area. Pretty much it's very red, very inflamed, and I will not be going out of my apartment until it's calmed down and started to heal...
so that pretty much means my entire Saturday will be spent inside (away from the sun), and away from other people. I'm dreading my roommate coming home later and asking me what my plans are for Saturday night, because if she's staying in, then I can't lie and say I'll be going out for a bit..
I put a couple drops of tea tree oil on a cotton ball with water and applied it to the area. There's also a couple more spots on the right side of my face-- one on my forehead and one healing red mark on my jaw.
Encouragement? Advice? Tips to heal faster? Please-- I need it!
Right now the only things I know how to do for healing are:
-Warm compresses every so often
-Antibiotic cream and a bandaid over it
-Drink green tea and tons of water
-Eat a lot of Vitamin C
