Deep Blackhead With Redness Around - Help? (Picture)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've had this little blackhead under my eye for probably a good month now. I tried gently squeezing it when it first appeared but nothing happened. I ignored it figuring it would go away eventually. Now it feels like there's a small bump around it, and there's redness around it. I'm afraid of getting a cystic pimple, last time I had was was over 2 years ago and in about the same spot (I've gotten them twice under the same eye, one under the other).

Today I gave it a good squeeze and the only thing that happened was a bit of oil came out, so I stopped, put some hydrogen peroxide on it, then later some Epiduo. I was icing it as well. Attached is a picture of what it looks like, both up close and normal. Any suggestions on how to get rid of this little guy? It hurts too!

no offense tarasarus, but that looks very very minor.

the hole i mean looks minor.

Hopefully you do not develop a cyst though

I would just leave it alone for a little bit honestly :(. Maybe take some ibuprofen (3-4 or 1000mg, I promise it won't hurt you but that's the only way the inflammatory properties will kick in) and ice it so it doesn't turn into a cyst because that's probably the worst place to have one.

I had a bump like that pretty much in the exact spot for I kid you not, three or so years. It was never really that big. It was just like a little tiny thing. It got bigger as my acne got worse and I just decided to get rid of it one day but don't aggravate it because that's not a great area to try to pick. For whatever reason... it's just not. Can't get the right angle and you will just end up irritating your skin more.
