What can I do to bring the swelling/bumpiness down on a pimple??

Recommended Posts

I had a lot of luck with witch hazel on a cotton ball, held to the area for pretty much as long as possible. I prefer Thayers Cucumber witch hazel, which smells about a billion times better than regular witch hazel. Witch hazel has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties.

Also tea tree oil has been good to me. I had a cyst the size of a grape three days ago, and now it's almost completely flat. Hot compresses helped it come to a head, TTO and witch hazel helped it reduce in size and pain with then.
