Ok so, how long do pimples REALLY take to form? Some sites say zits can form overnight, others say it takes 2 to 3 weeks for a pimples to form and my derm told me it takes months for a pimple to form. I believe the 'months' concept is incorrect.

I think it can take up to 6 weeks if it's hormonal. And as quick as over night if it's caused by enviromental irritation (an abbrasive scrub, bad makeup, etc). I think that's what I've heard.
