Just that really....any tips? It's one of those bubbling under the surface, hideous red volcanoes with no head yet that will linger for days then erupt...I thought this was supposed to end after the teen years?!?!

Sudocream or toothpaste.

Third sudocrem. Always works for me.

Hot flannel.

Sharp needle dipped in boiling water.

Pierce the centre point of the spot and push needle in.

Slide needle out.

Wrap tissue around knuckles of index fingers and squeeze and hopefully the needle will have penetrated down into the sac of pus and it will erupt. Once you see blood, all the pus should have come out. Apply TCP with a cotton bud and then wrap an ice cube in tissue and hold over sore area for a few minutes.

That's how I get rid of those big spots that don't want to come to a head!

I've started getting these again after they discontinued making panoxyl.

Gross, I know.

Quinoderm -it's cheap, bleaches anything it touches and smells awful but really does work especially on the big spots that hurt and don't come to a head. I've know it make them disappear overnight -good luck x

Use some kind of anti-bacterial product (eg tea tree), dab concealer on it and try to forget about it - safest if you want to avoid scarring
