Hi Sporners,

I've lightly lurked around sporner's corner but never posted here before.

I have the biggest spot I have ever seen on my chin. It has been growing for over a week with no head. This evening I could see a tiny head (I think it's going to be one of those multi headed monsters). I held a hot flannel over and squeezed. Some very yellow liquid pus and blood came out, so I repeated a few more times but now it just really hurts and I can't squeeze anymore out.

Please can anyone advise what to do with this beast?

Keep holding a warm compress on it, but don't squeeze it anymore yet. Leave it overnight and then try re-squeezing it again in the morning.

Try sudocreme it will dry it out . Or you could pop round to me and I will pop it for you...

IckyPop Wed 24-Jan-18 00:25:53

Thanks. HeyJude are you in the south east by any chance? grin

Oooh, nice. You could wait til it fills up again and then film it as you pop it again and post the video here. If you wanted.

IckyPop Wed 24-Jan-18 00:38:35

Catsofa grin I'm a novice documenter (is that a word?) of spot popping but am willing to give it a go!

That's a good one. If you've got some mag sulph, try that.

IckyPop Wed 24-Jan-18 00:46:50

Is that magnesium sulphate? Where could get some?

OrlandaFuriosa Wed 24-Jan-18 01:29:44

A chemist.

If no sudocreme or mag sulpha tonight, try toothpaste. Just for this evening.

Holy fuck, that is impressive!

I am insanely jealous envy

ohfourfoxache Wed 24-Jan-18 02:21:53

You could also try a bread poultice.....

MerryMarigold Wed 24-Jan-18 02:37:24

Definitely a pic in the morning. Honey and flour mix can draw the pus up

Dear god, that's a beast! Looking forward to hearing about the exorcism. Hope it doesn't hurt too much.

Oh, that's a big one. I don't think I've seen anyone with a bigger spot in my entire 53-year old life!

I don't think it can be rushed, it will heal by itself and whatever you do don't squeeze! Or stick your fingers (full of bacteria) near it. Meanwhile, let people offer to comfort your pain with drinks and snacks while they are feeling severely sorry for you.

Im gong to be honest, I fell some jealousy envy!

mcdog Wed 24-Jan-18 06:56:31

I have a monster spot at the moment too. I gave it a slight squeeze yesterday and the gunk inside hit the mirror grin

IckyPop Wed 24-Jan-18 07:38:04

Wow I feel so special grin It is truly horrific although seems to be less swollen this morning. Last night that side of my chin had almost doubled in size!
I would quite happily confine myself to my bed for the next couple of weeks if I could, so as not to inflict the sight of my volcanic chin on any innocent passers by. I think I'll have to learn to live with it for a while as it looks like it's a keeper sad.
I'll hot flannel it later this morning when my DS is safely installed in front of CBeebies and post the results.
But for now....

Led face mask off Amazon for next time. I had one like that but it's not come back since I started using the mask.

BashStreetKid Wed 24-Jan-18 08:10:56

whatever you do don't squeeze

Seriously bad advice. It's easy enough to deal with the possibility of cross-infection by normal hygiene precautions, and I never know why people think it's better for you to have a load of gunk and bugs trapped on your face. These things come to a head because nature wants to get rid of the infection and its consequences.

IckyPop Wed 24-Jan-18 08:15:00

Flyffycloud I thought you were suggesting buying a man in the iron mask type facial covering until I read the last line of your post! I shall have a look, thank you.

I've always had a need to squeeze - that shit needs come out!

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 24-Jan-18 08:45:39

They are man in the iron mask type things. Very effective though.

I had a massive allergic reaction on my face before Xmas, literally couldn't leave the house. I could tell the difference in a day.

titsbumfannythelot Wed 24-Jan-18 20:56:09

We need an update OP

IckyPop Wed 24-Jan-18 21:06:15

I've not managed to get out today so no magnesium sulphate but I have dotted sudocream on a few times throughout the day and it does seem to have reduced the swelling and it's definitely not as sore. I'm going to hot flannel it before bed and see what delights emerge!
I'm over my image allowance so no
pics.

heyjude12 Wed 24-Jan-18 23:58:40

Om no pics. Can I give you my picture allowance. This is a travesty sad
