Discussions that mention aspirin

Acne board


So one week ago my skin was nearly perfect- I had a few small bumps that would have gone away on their own, and I was finally feeling optimistic about my face. Then OF COURSE i had to ruin everything- i picked and picked at those tiny bumps until they became huge raw patches of skin, which then scabbed, and then i couldn't stop myself from picking at the scabs. My face now looks red and disgusting. I've been wearing my hair in a ridiculous side part the last few days in an effort to cover up as much of my face as possible! I look like a fool!

I've been doing aspirin masks and neosporin but nothing seems to be working....Can anyone suggest anything? I have a big date in three days and I really want to look good for it....Would icing help? Any feedback would make me feel less stupid and alone!

Thanks!
