And I have to go out in public tomorrow. No mag sulpha to hand. Any suggestions to calm the bastard down?

Random but sudocreme has worked for me???

My skin looks really shit close up too.

i swear by a daub of toothpaste....mintier the better.

I suggest tooth paste too , it should dry it out

StillSmallVoiceOfCalm Thu 30-Jun-16 21:53:25

Will try toothpaste. My sudocreme is 20 years old so possibly gone off

I vote for a tiny hole with a sterilised pin and squeeeeeze grin

StillSmallVoiceOfCalm Thu 30-Jun-16 21:55:21

He is sadly not squeezable. More angry and hard.

Tomorrow I'll have access to anaesthetic and sharp instruments. If he's not calmed down I could resort to major surgery.

You dont need to calm it down! Get a nice hot flannel on it and post another pic.

Angry is good. That white bit on the top says its ready to be squeezed, I'd say.

How did it go?

StillSmallVoiceOfCalm Fri 01-Jul-16 13:34:20

Max strength ibuprofen gel stings like a bitch but calmed it down.
No longer throbbing but still large and red.

I'm another who swears by toothpaste

Aspirin crushed and mixed with a tiny bit of water. Leave it on for as long as you can (I.e at least all night). It's magic

Aspirin poultice. Yes yes yes

Eurax the itching cream.

I have finally FINALLY got on top of my cystic spots. Salicylic acid which can be found in Boots clear skin (cheapo clearasil lotion)
