Could someone please help me get rid of a stupid pimple on my chin that has been there for two weeks and won't go away??? I've been using Mario Badescu's drying lotion on it for over a week.

Try benzoyl peroxide on your zit if you don't have a sensitive skin. That's the only thing that helps me when I get zits...

You could try crushing an aspirin and mixing it with a drop of water.
Apply this paste to the zit and it should help dry it up.

The aspirin is a form a salicytic acid, which is used in acne medications.

Personally, I think Mario Badescu's drying lotion is crap. I wouldn't waste a penny on that stuff.

  • Apply a mixture of turmeric and neem on the face.
  • A mixture of crushed mint leaves and oats will reduce pimples. Leave this for 20 minutes and wash it with warm water.
  • Mix thick curd, turmeric and two drops of oil. Apply on the face.
  • Crush garlic and take the juice and apply it on the face daily to reduce pimples
  • Make a paste with sandal wood and turmeric and apply it on the face

i would have rec the BPO too. perhaps zapzyt or what its called in canada i dont know.
5% is great to try. 10 is too much, 3% often to less.
i use BPO only if nothing else helps. but thats not often.
when i get a monster on my chin (thats perhaps every 3. months) then i usually use a black salve. thats what its called coll.
it has tar in it, and it swells soooo disgusting. but i only use it over night, with a band-aid on it. then the next day mostly the evil guy is gone!
i prefer that to BPO, because it doesnt damage my skin and its faster!
no popping, no scar!
perhaps this helps someone and you can understand what i wanted to say in my lame english
hello i just want to say sorry if my english is not always good. i am from sauerkrautland

BP always worked for me as well. Something like Oxy or Clearasil.

I'd be horrible to ask, because I always pick at them and pop 'em! Good luck though!

I have found the best product for those painful deep in the pore blemishes (you know the ones that have the area sore a few days before the pimple actually rises to the surface, usually chin and nose) is an astringent called Sea Breeze for Sensetive Skin. Okay, so I didn't really find it, it was on my bathroom vanity, because my husband heard me complainng about the painful blemish rising by my right nostril (TMI, sorry) and said rub a small amount with a cotton pad and it will go away completing without even rising into a full blown pimple. I know what your thinking, YEAH RIGHT! But he was actually right! In two days it was completly gone. The pain faded the first day and the second I didn't even notice it(do apply both days maybe three). The only thing it smells very masculine, not bad, a little eucalyptus-y.Oh, and of course it is good for the stubborn ones that never want to go away. It also does not leave your face all dry and flaky. I use weekly to deep clean my entire face and neck and ears. You'd be surprised to see what even the best cleansers leave behind.

( might be miss spelled ) the dosage of the pill.. and eventually he stopped perscribing it now.. and my acne seems to be comming back
