I was wondering if anyone here ever gets the kind of annoying pimples that tend to itch or hurt. If so, what do you do for the itch or pain? In my opinion, itching the pimple only makes it more inflamed, but sometimes it's hard not to itch. Would anyone happen to have any advice on what to do for pimples that itch/hurt? What makes a pimple itch or hurt to being with? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank guys, and keep the faith!!!!!!
I don't have a remedy for itching pimples. I have one huge whitehead on my cheek now that itches like crazy. I have never had an itchy pimple before. I am trying not to touch it. I know that if I scratch it, it will be there for a long time.
In my next life I want clear skin. Sick and tired of my pimples in this life time...
I dont know why, but it seems when i break out, the acne tends to itch and it makes me break out more. Some poeple tell me that i dont have acne, but i have heat rash. I know for a fact that i have acne (because i also have it in the winter) but, i think the heat in the summer does have something to do with the Itching.
Yea, my forehead is like that, it's all little bumps that never get white or black heads, and sometimes it itches like crazy!
I was intrigued by the Acne: the new theory thread because I felt like it described me when talking about high histamine types, and I have always associated itching with excess histamine, so maybe it's all related.
But I don't do anything for the itching other than try not to scratch it. I guess maybe the hydrocortisone users might find this gives them relief from itching, but I didn't like what it did to my skin, and I've read that if you use it long term, it thins your skin out dramatically (bad) ...
Yes, i have the best remedy for itchy spots.
As soon as it starts to itch put some sudocrem on it. Ive written a post on this before...i called it my 'itchy spot secret'. You can get sudocrem EVERYWHERE, its in a little gray tub and is really for babies bums! It has a list of things u can use it for and acne it also one.
All u need is a little bit on the actaul pimple...dont put it all over your face.
Another thing i use is cortisone anti-itch cream. This works just as well. You only need a tiny bit and the itchyness is gone in no time at all.
All my family use the sudocrem....my nan told me to use it when i first got spots.
