ok, here's a silly question. I just popped a pimple yesterday (sssshh...dont' tell anyone, i know i know...i'm not supposed to) and now it's left me this scab on my face Posted Image...I know it usually takes a while for the scab to just heal and peel off...but is there a way to make it peel off faster? I'm guessing no, but I guess a girl can hope **sigh**

John's dad swears by using pure Vitamin E on wounds... John said it does actually help them heal faster too... Maybe possibly hydrocortisone cream? Definitely leaving it alone Posted Image

thanks, girls! i have some neosporin at home too so maybe will give that a try...you know what i noticed though...after i washed my face, the skin around the scab kinda dried up and starting shriveling ...and i can see that the skin around it is starting to flake...i think i'm gonna leave it alone for now and see if it starts peeling on it own....if not, i'm gonna try the neosporin! thanks again!!

Emu and jojoba oils usually work miracles in the healing process - as does tea tree oil.

I always use neosporin when I pop a pimple. I put it on right before bed. I use the clear one though, not the cream. Im glad to see its worked for you!

I think the reason why the Vitamin E oil works is because it keeps the area moist.

I used to have tons of acne scars. I always used lemon juice. I swear scars that used to last months dissapeared in a few days. Its cheap, natural, and it works.
