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 like the Liz Earle one as my skin can't cope with anything too strong...

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 have tough oily skin and only use a teeny tiny bit - you can get 5% as well

I use tea tree oil.
Vodka can work very well too.

Read an article last week that recomended a burn ointment for spots, I will try and find out which ine.

Acriflex apparently for £2.60 from the chemist.

And if that doesn't work they reccommend Laura Mercier Secret Camoflague.

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 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

funkimummy will kill me !
