I’ve got the most awful spot on my forehead. I’m late 40’s and do get the occasional spot, sometimes large and weeping . Can anyone recommend a really good cream to help reduce the inflammation of a spot. Happy to spend a bit if it works.

This stuff is brilliant. Available at the chemist but you have to ask for it.

Also, if it’s looking ready to pop these dots overnight are great- always have a pack of them in the house.

COSXR spot patches are brilliant for when you feel the spot starting to form under the skin.

Witch hazel gel takes mine down overnight. I swear by it.

Whenever I get a breakout I use Boots witch stick concealer it hides the redness and really helps either bring it to a head or make it disappearsmile

I use dot spots from Amazon. They're less than £10 a pack, and I couldn't live without them. Any hydrocolloid patch will do, and dot spots seem to be the best at its price point. They pull out all the pus, and as a bonus, prevent you from scratching, either consciously or unconsciously. Plus, I really enjoy looking at how much pus comes out blush

Thanks, I’ve ordered the gel and the spots. I’ll try them out and see how it goes.....

Clinique blemish gel really works for me
