In my experience these buggers last for ages and hurt. I've felt it coming ever since I woke this morning and my chin is getting redder and redder.

Is there anything I can do to reduce it? Stop it hurting? Stop it scaring???

Put a blob of toothpaste on it, let it dry and leave overnight before washing off.

It'll dry it out.

Or dab perfume on it - that'll do it too.

Make a video of you squeezing it and put it on youtube for all the sporners

I hear mag sulph is the thing you need. Someone will be along soon to instruct you in how to administer...

Me too Mutt, it's already gone and no redness, honestly they normally last forever so big thanks from me.

And I seem to remember from my mis-spent youth that toothpaste works miracles on lovebites too blushwink I have no idea why though...

Aspirin mask. Crush an aspirin with a little warm water in an egg cup and put it on spot, leave it to dry for as long as poss, repeat when you can
