    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?
    firstly don't mess with them.

    secondly, i'd advise trying going on a sunbed for 6 minutes as this will totally dry them out (although it's up to you becos sunbeds aren't the healthiest of things).

    i also recommend st ives apricot scrub.

    i had this stupid spot on the side of my face and i left it thinking ok don't panic it will go away, but it didn't and still hasn't! It's been there for well over a week plus it's got worse I've steamed my face and everything.

    edit: at night it helps to dab bits of a face pack on the spots at it helps dry them out too i.e. like the Tesco original mud pack.

    I agree with others its nothing at all to worry about and if you are worried about it perhaps you should become a bimbo and not bother doing any of your exams, you might scratch a nail while writing.

    You should try living with acne then you will have somthing to moan about.

    Good diet and maybe a mini detox - plain foods and water to refresh the body. Everyone gets them and attacking them makes them worse, true be grateful you do not have acne, neither are nice to have at all.

    I did have terrible acne all over my back about 3 years ago. I went on roaccutane to clear it up. Luckily I didn't scratch and pick, so I don't have any marks/scars.

    I didn't pick them either but I have loads of scars, I am not really bothered though as they are hardly noticable, its just a process of aging anyway, I am 22.

    Witch Sticks....I swear by those things. A little dab of Sudo Cream before bed can also work wonders. Severe acne needs to be looked at by a dermotologist. After trying loads of things such as a roll on and antibiotics, the dermo put me on 'Isotrexin' and although I still have some left, the spots have calmed down a lot.

    I knew you suffered before with this because someone who gets a few spots who isnt usually prone to getting big outbreaks would never react like you did. Dont pick and if you do, get some TCP on them.

    hmm if u got spots more foten you'd have the knack of knowing which ones are squezers and which ones arent, theres a certain "i dont know what" about spots that are ready to be squeezed... but i guess that doesnt help u unless ur willing to take the risk...

    Great minds....best off with whatever is most natural and not chemically proven junk, throwing lots of chemicals unbalances the skins pH.....
