How do you get rid of spots fairly quickly?
I've had an outbreak over night and an important event to go to on Saturdayblush.. Panicking! Any advice welcome please! flowers

A dab of sudocrem on the problem spot overnight works well or if you have a particularly swollen spot, hydrocortisone cream will take the swelling down.

Someone on here mentioned an aspirin face mask working wonders for spots and redness but I'm not sure how you go about it.

Thankyou I've got a hot compress on them now as I've heard that works and will try the sudocrem overnight! I hate spots ugh angry

Sudocrem can also leave burn marks. I wouldn't use it ever again as I used it on my son and he was left very sore for a few days. Tried it on me many years later with new tub for spots and it left me with red peeling burns after I left it in spots overnight.

Maybe we are over sensitive to it but aren't to anything else and when I took my tub back to Boots the man said others had the same reaction.

TCP on a cotton bud will dry up individual spots quickly but stinks to high heaven!
