Stubborn Pustules

Recommended Posts

how do I get the plug that's clogging my pore out without squeezing??

I'm on roaccutane so don't want squeeze as my skins very senstive and prone to hyperpigmenting. But I have these 4 or 5 recurring pustules which come to a head and burst almost daily. And they don't go away because there's still crap in there.

Should I squeeze or will the plug fall out one day???

i don't use topicals apart from manuka honey.

I wouldn't squeeze. Put a dab of antibiotic ointment or cream on each one overnight, cover with a bandaid. Try that for a few nights.

One of my friends at work was in a severe car accident many years ago. She flew THROUGH the front windshield. She had splinters of glass ALL in her face, all over, everywhere in the face. She did not scar but she IS prone to scarring (her abdomen did not fare as well). She did as her doctor suggested and used a thick coating of vaseline and or antibiotic ointment on her facial skin at all times. I can't see ONE scar from all that glass. Not one. Amazing.
