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

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

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???
