Head To No Head Zit. :/

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Recently I received a pimple from dear Mother Nature, a week before a wedding. Well, I made myself a promise not to pick it and to just let it heal on its own. Well, I got impatient and I sort of picked at it, put rubbing alcohol on it as well as toothpaste. Needless to say, it didn't go away and now it's a slightly raised, "darkened" bump.

I usually don't get these, I think the pimple has been pushed down under the skin and now there is now head...just a black bump. It's sort of "scabby", but I can't pick it off.

Any suggestions on what it is and how to get rid of it? Please and thank you!

Steaming can just irritate it more, you basically pushed the bacteria in the pimple deeper into the skin. You could spot treat with BP but it may dry the skin up and make it flaky and harder to cover up for the wedding

I did this too. But I left it alone and it went away on its own, it's just left a mark. It took a couple of weeks for it to go down, unfortunately. But I'm a slow healer, it may be faster for you.
