If it is really red and irritated, try hydrocortisone cream.  It is a steroid cream that will get the redness out and help reduce the swelling. And DON’T PICK, as hard as it may be!

Maybe this is just me, but I’ve found that using those “on-the-spot” treatments actually make it worse and make me break out more around that same area!!! When I have felt a bad pimple coming on, i’ve tried everything from toothpaste to eye drops and none of it ever helped and actually made it worse!

I use this oily stuff on my skin that was gifted to me (I don’t know what’s in it and it was made locally), but when I rub this on bad acne I fill like the acne goes away quicker and doesn’t result in more acne.

I’ve read many times that drying out the skin (with toothpaste and benzoyl peroxide products) only causes it to produce MORE OIL!!!! That’s exactly what you don’t want is more acne due to overproduction of oil. I would suggest the tea tree oil mentioned by Loves a Fire.

Visine helps to get the red out of the pimple.  I read on pinterest advil liquigels work.  If its true its the salicylic acid in it I would assume.  But Salicyclic acid doesnt work for me.  Your dermatologist is the best bet.

Go. To. The. Dermatologist. Get the cortisone shot and be done with it. If you have insurance they might even cover it, mine does. If not, doesn’t matter, its worth the $100 or whatever they charge. Go now Lol
