Pimple forming!.... remedies to stop/reduce growth ?

What can I do to keep the size of a pimple down? I just noticed it this morning, a little bit of a bump on my chin. But I feels like it will be big. I can feel on the inside of my lip, the bump filled with all of that "stuff".
I have heard applying ice may help. For how long and how often should I use ice? OR anything else that may help?

Re: Pimple forming!.... remedies to stop/reduce growth ?

I use a cotton ball with a little rubbing alcohol on it--hold it on there for a few minutes at a time. I usually do this before I go to bed-maybe 5-10 mins at a time if they're bad or "undergrounders."(those stop hurting overnight if I do this) Alcohol draws the junk to the top and gets rid of them quickly. Hope this helps you--it does me.

i hate to sound like a company "shill" or something, but look up this Zeno Zit Zapper thing. it's FDA approved with results showing that it stops 90% of pimples that are forming.

Thanks guys, I'll try the rubbing alcohol tonight. That zit zapper looks good but a little too expensive for the few pimples I get.

You can also use aspirin mask or Queen Helene mint julep mask.
