Did anyone ever have a pimple that lasted a really long time. I have this pimple that has been on my nose since December. But I really don't think it is a pimple but what else could it be? It has become smaller but it's still there. How do I get it to go away?
i've had some small clogged pores that have been around for months at a time, same with cysts that stick around and vary in their degree of inflammation and infection. i find the best thing for them is some sort of exfoliant, like AHA or BHA.
i have just gone to town and squeezed a couple, and the result wasn't good- i ended up with a really enlarged pore.
currently I have at least 15 that have been on my face under the skin since approx January or so. Maybe even December but I can't remember. I have tried tazorac which ripped my skin to shreds even while not using it over night. Now I am using azeleic acid...finacea 15%...and I am not sure if it is helping or not. I Pray it will, but then again, I thought the tazorac was working for awhile. I also use glycolic facial cleanser (have for 5 years or so) and I still get them stuck under there......
I had one of these on my cheek...it was there for a month before I got in injected but a few weeks after the injection, it came back but only to about half the size it was before. I finally got it reinjected yesterday and after 3 months of this thing being here, it's finally gone. Get an injection if you can, they're well worth it.
No it doesn't hurt...I was using something before but it started ripping away the skin on my nose so I stopped using it..it is going away...an it has a little dot on it...not like a white head but something that looks like u can pop and puss will come out
