Maybe using a toner at night time to get rid of the oil in the skin and then tea tree which you can get in a tube.

Stupid predictive text. Freederm.

Freeform is fab.

I have to say that the best thing is surgical spirits, stings like hell but works a treat xx

Sometimes you need something non cream based. TCP is massively underrated and really effective ime.

good luck
I must say I think germolene is the work of the devil and won't have it in my house, but I know people who think the opposite so hey ho!

Thanks smile. We will try germolene tonight, and I'll look in Boots for witch hazel and Freederm.

Germolene, a big blob, then DON'T TOUCH!

Sorry to keep coming back, my dsis just reminded me we swore by freederm as teens. They do a stick and a gel/cream that will take spots down but also a whole range of face washes for prevention smile

you can get a cheap witch-hazel stick in boots - I think those are the absolute best for getting rid of zits. Better even than sudocrem! Also it is colourless so she can put it on in the morning before school as well as at night before bed and double-zap it...

I'm not sure what it is in sudocrem that kills them, maybe the antiseptic. Germolene is defo worth a go. Try steaming it, head over boiling hot water then get her to lay head in your lap while you squeeze with pads of your thumbs no nails. Toothpaste works too but stings like a mofo, especially if you've just had a good squeeze sad

For anything like this I use Germolene WOUND CARE CREAM it really is good. Get it from Boots or other chemists - am never without it now!

MotherOfSoupDragon Thu 26-Sep-13 23:12:48

Thanks. We've tried toothpaste and she has squeezed it, but it keeps coming back. It's the only one she's got so far. I have no sudocrem, do you know if another cream will do? I have germolene.

Toothpaste can help to heal it too. smile

A HUGE blob of sudocrem and a plaster before bed, it works a dream.

Does it need a good squeeze? I know they say you shouldn't squeeze spots but I genuinely feel it's necessary sometimes, especially with a beaut of one

Do you feel comfortable with her using concealer until it's goes?

MotherOfSoupDragon Thu 26-Sep-13 12:27:58

DD, aged 12, has a big spot on her nose, she's been putting some gel (Oxy?) on it, but it just isn't going.

Can anyone recommend anything that's guaranteed to work?

Thanks.
