TMI... help me with this horrible creature (spot)

Okay, this is horrible but I need some help with this monster that is growing on my chin. It started as a spot, or so I thought...then I woke the next day and it was three times the size and ..gross bit coming up..... Had three large white heads on it. This thing is not a spot ,it should have its own post code it's so big. I am trying not to touch it, but when I put pressure on it with my tongue from the inside...more grossness coming your way.... The yellow stuff came out, (sorry) I disinfected it and put on some sudocream

I've got a big night on Friday and wonder is there any magic cream/potion/old wives tale that can help reduce it quickly. I even tried to get an app with my dermatologist to inject it with Cortizone...Can't spell it.....As I read that's a thing. But he's booked up.

anyone? any advise. I'm not touching it, but need some help please. I can see people looking at it when they talk to me. making me very self aware.

I read a thread on here recently where someone put a colloidal plaster on their spot and it drew everything out...worth a shot? A salon one I think...

Voila!!
It says it's for cystic spots with no head but sounds like it could work for your monster smile

Ok, what you need to do it post on Chat with photos and start your post with " Klaxon - sporn!!!" And then we can all come and admire the zit and make " helpful"suggestions
I thought everyone knew this

I would pop down to the pharmacist and ask them to have a look at it - they maybe able to recommend something. Also if it is something like impetigo it will need antibiotics.

Also the PP tip was for something with no head - not something oozing gunk...

If the puss is out now, then it just needs to dry out. Do you have any Benzac or similar? I remember putting toothpaste on spots as a teenager. I think Sudocreme will do the same to dry it out by Friday. There will probably still be a mark there, but then foundation is your friend.

Toothpaste with baking soda in it

Thanks everyone.....I've got something called dream dots on it. It's a little plaster thing so maybe a copy of the savlon idea. It's a pain getting spots in my 40s, the wrinkles and grey hair should be enough to deal with. Tks again

Second getting the Sporners on it. (Chat - put Klaxon in the title) You will get tons of advice, and even envy...

I'll vouch for the thread about the plasters, they really work. mine went down in 24 hours. I ordered some little dot ones off ebay but if you need a quick result just get the blister plasters. good luck

If it's not gone by Friday then the internet tip is to put liquid bandage (I'm guessing it's the same as our liquid plasters) then cover with concealer. Just google it. The concealer sticks to bandage not skin so you don't get that flaky, scabby look. I have my Germoline new skin ordered.
