    Today, for whatever reason, I have broken out in 4 spots on my face. One of the *******s is one of this frickin underneath-skin ones that hasn't come to the surface.

    Urghhhhh, I never get ****ing spots. Ever.

    Anyhow, thing is I need to get rid of them quickly and all the cleansing/toning I do just ****s it up even more and my face is now really red and I think I've got prickly heat too and I'm really hot and stressed out............

    Does any1 know of a decent product?

    I find that Avon's Tea Tree Blemish Stick is great for getting rid of spots!

    Whatever you do don't squeeze them! A little under the skin spot is far nicer than big red marks and scabs. Wash all the products off your face and leave it alone! Having a few spots every now and then is only human, don't panic.

    The underneath-skin spot is in the middle of my forehead and it REALLY hurts.

    Tonight I choked on my dinner and as I coughed I could feel the pain from this ever-expanding spot. I'm totally knackered n stressed n feel like crap.

    Sorry about the bad language in this thread, btw.

    stress- yeah i got lurkers- eville ones when i had my exams.
    Apply tea tree oil if its an open wound but if its got no head then it won't make a difference. - I am not saying attack it, do not!
    If you leave them alone they should be gone by tuesday,

    TCP can help with spots, especially if they're at the painful stage. But get the tea tree stick for future emergencies!

    Antiseptic cream, like Savlon. It always clears up any lurkers.

    you really are sad.. ur not going to attend an exam because of a few spots.. :rolleyes:

    anyway just do you regular morning routine (good tip is to use a bit of face scrub with ur face wash).. and leave the spots alone and in time they will just go away.. - if u hav oily skin try get a moisturiser that reduces the shine (i.e. clarins shine free or new 1 from clinique)

    the less you stress and think about them the quicker they will go.

    I wasn't actually been serious...of course I wouldn't skip an exam due to spots.
