    Yes, all the time I'm about to get big pimple. At the first sign, I ice it. I sometimes helps, and sometimes doesn't. Doesn't hurt to try.

    Re: Can you feel your pulse through a zit? lol

    It happens to me everytime I drink alcohol. Even a glass of beer makes my zits (they are more like cysts) PULSATE in the rhythm of my heart beat. It's very funny and ANNOYING coz then my zits & cysts seem to GROW!?!?

    Luckily I drink alc. only occasionaly (like one glass in a month).

    Any ideas why that happens?

    It's because acne is inflammation of tissue, and inflammation means increased blood flow (that's why it's red and swollen). The pressure you feel inside is from displaced tissue, displaced by the excess fluid and cellular buildup, and this creates pressure which you feel in the form of your heart beat. It's sort of like going to the dentist or having a tooth ache -- if there's swelling chances are pretty good (especially in sensitive skin areas) that you'll feel the "throb" of your heart beat too.
