Re: Big Painfull one on chin help!..

i get big huge zits on my chin usually every month or so and i know that they can be very painful and depressing! for me i wash my face as usual and then spot treat with Neutrogena on the spot about 3-4 times a day... sometimes less sometimes more and the zit is gone within the week! sometimes as little as 3 days or so! i hope this helps! God Bless and Happy Holidays!

Tea tree oil is better than the tee tree gel. It absorbs quicker and really attacks the inflammation. I use it on cysts all the time with great results. Use it two or three times a day until the cyst opens up and shrinks.

I realize that this post is a few days old so you have probably found some relief by now, but I would recommend seeing an aesthetician the next time you get a bad breakout or a cyst on your face. I don't get cystic acne but I get a lot of blackheads and whiteheads right under the surface of my skin and I go about once a month and she picks them all out for me for thirty bucks. It's worth it to me because when I pick at my face, it only gets worse, when she picks it, it flares up the next day and then completely clears. She also said that she treats a lot of people with cystic acne. She is a medical aesthetician who works for a plastic surgeon and I like her better than the dermatologist because she does nothing all day long but treat acne and she really knows her stuff!

See your derm's asst and get a cortisone injection. It'll make it go away quick and you'll have less scarring.
