put this in here as i need the latest gizmo to blast them to hell please. whether its homemade or YSL please recommmend one that will zap them overnight. those boil type ones, i get just one, and it hoovers under the skin but goes nowhere, and tis sore.
10% benzoyl peroxide, about £3 over the counter at a pharmacy.
Can dry the skin out a bit but often stops the m erupting. Also takes down ones that have erupted before you had a chance to get them. Does bleach clothes, pilowcases etc though.
I use Oxyl Aquagel.
It is 2.5% benxoyl Peroxide. i usually leave it on the spotovernight.
It can leave you skin a bit dry.
Costs a few quid over the counter in the chemist.
Mrs b a ten percenter must tkae layers of skin off!
Don't find the Liz Earle one any good.
i had one of those on my chin last week (time of the month induced...) i'm going to get shot for admitting it by the skincare police (but i do have the hide of a rhino and can tolerate the devils spawn that is clinique)
I used a tiny dab of TCP (on a cotton bud) . never even got a spot ..it tingles for 2 days but could use a dab of concealer on it so couldn't see a thing and it dissapeared.
last month i "tried" to squeeze one and ended up with a monster on my chin for 2 weeks
