If only it were possible! Some ways to bring it down is to ice it- some say lemon works too, toothpaste works for some-- it worked for me once on this zit I got on my nose but after that it never really worked. Use saclycic acid or something (I cannot spell that word, sorry) and/or benzoyl peroxide on it. good luck

Benzoyl Peroxide works pretty well for me in an emergency... Try ice too

Try taking 3 ibuprofin...they help with the swelling.

Take two at supper and then three at night...This works pretty good

Once I even tried mayonaise because someone suggested it on here. Don't bother. It didn't do a thing! It's funny how we'll try all these weird things on our faces.

[FONT=Georgia]What works well for me is taking some ibuprofen before I go to bed and putting BP cream on it, as well as an ointment of some kind and not touching my face at all helps!

I use Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion.. works like a charm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It does dry it up overnight.. If anything, it'll usually make it look smaller.

goodluck.

taking two advil works too.
