Post Are they Itchy??

Hey guys,

I always get this strange thing happen to me and I was wondering if it was normal...Sometimes I get a really itchy feeling on a certain spot on my face and when I look in the mirror the area goes red with a whitish bump in the middle...Slowly the redness goes down (in 1 hr) and what I am left with is a smaller red area that later forms a whitehead...It takes about 3 days to heal...Is this just how a zit forms??? Most of mine don't start like that...Anyone else have this happen to them???

Well, this was my experiment....I had a horrible breakout on Monday....It was healing pretty fast and by Thursday it got pretty dried up and was ready to flake off....From Monday to Thursday all I ate was veggies, beans and fruit and the occasional whole wheat bread....Then last night as a treat I had pizza, and whammmmmm this morning 2 new zits....I can eat bread and not break out but thats not the case for other people, so I think everyone reacts differently to different foods...So I know for me pizza is out, still couldn't resist though....

I get that alot too, but they don't even turn into a whitehead. It's just like a misquito bite that fades in about an half an hour. They fade even sooner if I ice them. It's really odd!
