Best Spot Treatment

What is everyone's favorite spot treatment? I personally like Queen Helen's Mint Julep mask.

I ask because I have a very big pimple forming under the skin and I am not sure what I should do for it. For I now, I have not picked or squeezed at it. Should I ice it? Aspirin Mask? 10% Benzoal Peroxide?

I know someone once posted about a specific product that all there girl friends swear by. I can't remember the website though.

What can I do to start drying this thing up?!?!?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Best Spot Treatment

i recommend Aspirin Mask first, then use some sort of Benzoyl Peroxide/Triclosan/Chamomile sort of compound overnight that should sort any pimple out..

Re: Best Spot Treatment

Give your Mint Julep a kick and add some crushed aspirin to it... its the best Overnight spot treatment ever! I use the regular aspirin mask 2-3 times a week too... that helps alot.

Re: Best Spot Treatment

I have actually been using Aspirin on this pimple as a spot treatment and I think it is working! I also used persa-gel on it for a couple of hours then washed it off, as recommended by someone on another board. I don't want to jinx it but the pimple seems to be drying and does not hurt anymore.

Anyone else have any advice? Thanks everyone.
