Do you have a dermatologist?  If so, you can go there and he/she can inject it (i forget with what) and it will go away with in a few hours.  I would definitely look into that.

Get to a dermatologist ASAP. and DONT TOUCH IT! You don’t want to irritate it, that will just make it worse.

This might sound crazy but I had one of those once and I read online that drinking glasses of water with airborne would help reduce the swelling and it really did. I highly recommend trying it.

Tea Tree Oil has never let me down.

You can dilute it with witch hazel but on those kind of pimples I use it full strength and apply it just that area.

Toothpaste (not gel) works, too. Pat some on and leave it overnight–that usually helps to shrink it and reduce redness.

I second the drinking a nice big glass of water.

I take a q-tip with some hydrogen peroxide and dab it on a couple times.  Then at night do it again but then cover it with a layer of triple antibiotic ointment cream.  Usually it clears up quickly.  I’ve also heard good things about aloe vera and redness once the pimple goes away.

If all else fails, the photographer should be able to Photoshop it out.

Paula’s Choice 2% Salicylic Acid/Beta Hydroxing Exfoliating Toner–google it.  It is a godsend!

It might be a sty. I got two “zits” under my eye in 6 months and I didn’t know what a sty was until someone told me. http://www.mamashealth.com/eye/sty.asp

In addition to what the others are suggesting, I would throw out your eye make up (mascara and eye shadow pencils). While you’re probably a bride on a budget and so the thought of thowing that stuff out is another expesive and it may not be a sty, but maybe it’s better to be safe than sorry then have another zit show up in the same spot near your wedding day?

Don’t worry about how it will show up in the e-photos. Anything can be photoshopped out these days! 🙂

I second @cabanagrl9 with going to a derm and getting a cortisone shot!  It’s honestly the least likely to cause any further breakouts.  The other bees had good ideas, but if your skin reacts adversely to them, it will only get worse!

Oh gosh! When that happens to me I usually exfoliate with my St. Ives then I use Clearasil at night. I was actually using Clearasil every night starting 3 weeks before the wedding just to prevent anything from happening! You have to make sure it is dry all the time so wash your face more often and keep something like soap, toothpaste or clearasil on it.

I use Buffering Lotion from MB when I get the under the skin giant monsters — not an instant miracle but usually heads off the scarier possibilities. The bump tends to go down within 4 days of using the lotion.

I second the toothpaste idea, but I only leave it on for about five minutes. As long as you don’t have sensitive skin, it shouldn’t hurt anything!

Go to a dermatologist and get it injected. Some spas do this as well. It ‘flushes’ out the gross stuff and doesn’t dry out the area like many creams will. I had to get this done a few times and the breakout always cleared up really quickly after.

Derms. can inject it w/ Cortizone to get it to go down, but ouch!  Are you sure it’s not a mosquito bite?  Anywho….I agree with photoshopping it out.  My Fiance had a MONSTER on his face for ours, lol.  It was bad.  (did you have it sat?  If so I didn’t notice a thing…!)
