I have Mt. V on my chin. It's been there weeks and keeps getting a head inside. Last night I slapped some vapour rub on and gave it a squeeze and some pus came out. Put some more vapour rub on before bed and went to sleep in anticipation but nothing sad I can still feel a lump. My skin I'd a mess so don't really want to pick at it any more. Suggestions welcome.

TCP is what you need, not Vapour rub that will just irritate it.

What will TCP do Dame?

Stop it getting infected, and dry it out. TCP is amazing for spots.

Get a hot cloth on it a few times over a few minutes the squeeze it gently with your knuckles. And post a picture grin

Vaporub is basically mentholated Vaseline. It will do nothing for your spot!

Ooooh I know that "there's something bloody there" frustration.

Lots of heat and steam

Bought some neutrogena fast spot remover stuff and it's definitely shrunk to a flat pancake!!!
