I have arnica gel at home which is antiinflammatory and helps with bruises.

I used a little on a couple of zits and it seemed to help with the swelling.

only tried a couple of times so will update later

but wanted to know if anyone has tried it?

i tried and it irritated my skin. it says on the bottle do not apply to broken/infected skin. it works great for bruising.

This past week I've actually had a bad hormonal chin acne breakout comprising of 7 or more spots, some of them cystic and the pain was excruciating. I was going to put Ibuprofen gel on them to ease the pain but thought twice about possible irritation. I too have some Arnica gel in my cupboard and it works on muscle aches and I'd used it before on the skin on my face so I thought why not. It eased the pain dramatically and I actually think its reduced the inflammation visibly too. I've been using it with a topical antibiotic underneath and its speeding up healing time and obviously keeping pain at bay, I'd recommend it.
