Right this monster is on my back, I'm thinking its a massive blackhead?
It's got a hole in the middle and dp has given it a good squeeze (which is why it's red) after a soak in the bath but nothing.
Any ideas how to get rid of it?
Preferably tonightgrin

Keep squeezing it!

shamoffour Mon 31-Jul-17 19:26:33

Seriously minnow he's really really squeezed and nothing.
Do you think he just needs to keep going?
Would drawing ointment do anything?

I think he needs to push down with his squeeze.

DH had two of these!!!! I sterilized a needle and picked them out, like giant blackheads they were, twas amazing! 😍 Not that I'm encouraging you to dig around in your own back OP.....

I'd have a needle in there for a a good scrape around. (Disclaimer my advice may be very bad).

^^this - but only if you video it!

shamoffour Mon 31-Jul-17 19:30:22

I wish it was anywhere other than my back and I wouldn't be right in theregrin
Right a needle it is I think I might let him finish his dinner first!

Or sterilised sharp tweezers, the really pointy sharp ones.

A kirbie grip has a rounded end that can help push down around it. My sister sometimes does mine for me when it fills up!

Piratesandpants Mon 31-Jul-17 19:38:54

Finish his dinner?? At a time like this??grin

shamoffour Mon 31-Jul-17 19:42:22

Hmm dp is pulling faces about needleshmm
He's going to have another go after he's finished eating will update.
I've googled dilated pore of winer sweet Jesus there are some monsters ! It could be one of those maybe,

shamoffour Mon 31-Jul-17 19:42:53

I know pirates I'm staring at him tapping my foot!

GinaFordCortina Mon 31-Jul-17 19:49:56

Demented is right, you place itniver the spot and push down

Gobbolinothewitchscat Mon 31-Jul-17 19:52:46

Checking in! Agree - you need a Kirby. He needs to get up and under that bad boy!

shamoffour Mon 31-Jul-17 19:56:27

Right I've tried the kirby grip and some tweezers and it's got to this stage.
Dp says he doesn't want to do anymore as it's got skin growing over it and he's worried about going through it.
He's put drawing ointment on it.
What a disappointmentsad

Oh god why do I open these threads.

I say it's a portal to another dimension, OP. Or maybe a black hole?

namechange20050 Mon 31-Jul-17 19:58:10

Ooh! I would be getting at that with a pin or scalpel!

Gobbolinothewitchscat Mon 31-Jul-17 19:58:44

No! No! Sterilise a needle and tell him to give it a poke and then the kirby.

shamoffour Mon 31-Jul-17 20:00:20

If I could get at I would!
Hmm I'm wondering if my mum might do it but she's a bit squeamish.
Gobblolino if I remember rightly you're not that far from me!! (I used to be buttwing)
