It's been there for about a week, like a HUGE (marrofat pea size) spot, but has no head, its hard and only hurts when i try to rip it off (which hasn't worked btw, but has left a scabby, red, horrible mess).

It's so big/deep i can feel through my chin in my mouth, with my tongue.

How do i get rid of it with out the help of a doctor/antibiotics?

Apologies for awful grammar.

SmallShips Thu 09-Oct-08 18:27:02

That can be the back up plan CurleyWurly.

Leave it alone - that is how to get rid of it.

SmallShips - can I just say, everytime I see your name, I think of an elf! grinthat was a flippin good thread.

Sounds more like a boil than a spot - you might well need antibiotics if it's as big a mess as you say.

Ripping spots off is a pretty silly thing to do though ...

Oh always good to have a backup plangrin

SmallShips Thu 09-Oct-08 18:28:03

SmallShips - is there a fancy dress code for DH's xmas party?

SmallShips Thu 09-Oct-08 18:29:56

I know i shouldn't have touched it, but it was staring at me.

SmallShips Thu 09-Oct-08 18:31:23

I knew that bloody elf would come back to haunt me lol. I'm hoping his christmas party is cancelled, it usually ends in tears.... mine.

bellavita Thu 09-Oct-08 18:35:21

SmallShips Thu 09-Oct-08 18:39:05

The balaclave is looking promising TBH. I just put toothpaste on it, i nearly passed out, it hurt... alot!!

What do i do with the boiling water, just wash it?

ScareyBitchFeast Thu 09-Oct-08 19:48:59

well, when water has cooled down a bit, put it on chin with cotton wool, ouch

SmallShips Thu 09-Oct-08 19:49:28

I think you're right about the boil, its definately not just a rather large spot.

So how do i get rid of this boil then?

SmallShips Thu 09-Oct-08 19:51:24

Thanks. Will try that next then Scarey .

ScareyBitchFeast Thu 09-Oct-08 19:51:58

bring the boil to its head!

SmallShips Thu 09-Oct-08 19:58:19

Am doing the boiling water thing, nearly as painful as the toothpaste.
