Painful bump with no head

Recommended Posts


Well i have this painful bump on my chin for the last 2 days. i tried icing it, hot water application but it doesnt seem to come to head. I have been applying neosporin bit with no affect. Mind you i am on accutane and this my 4th month, so i am trying to avoind BP and other drying OTC.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.Shall i ice it or apply hot water pad on it.

I get those and I hate 'em so I feel for ya! I learned a cool trick along the way from another post somewhere...instead of doing the hot water pad, do this. I get an empty water bottle, fill it with warm/hot water, close it and hold the bottom of the water bottle gently on the affected area. This is not messy like the hot water pad and you can keep the warmth on the effected area alot longer so it's more effective, I think. So as you sit around, just keep doing this and slowly but surely it will go away. Good luck!
