    So I've got a job interview tomorrow at 1pm where I really want to impress. I've got a massive ugly red lump/spot developing on my chin. I do have pimples and have had ones like this before, they usually last a while and just sit there then fade away. I'm not sure if it's a nodule, a cyst or something else, but it's red and hurts!

    I've had savlon on it, I've tried an ice pack, I've tried a facial scrub, I've tried holding a hot flannel against it. It won't shift.

    After holding the flannel on it it did seem to come to a bit of a head. I gave it an experimental squeese, a bit of pus came out and it hurt like hell so I've left it alone since.

    Any advice? Anyone managed to get rid of one similar, quick?

    If I go to a supermarket or chemist first thing in the morning are they likely to have anything that will help in time? Any home remedies.

    Help please, I'm desperate!
    Thanks

    Idk if this will work for you but I put some manuka honey/raw honey on it overnight (spot treatment) and the redness will at the very least be reduced.

    In one day i don't think you can get rid of it. However, you can reduce it. Try Sudocrem (it comes in a grey pot) & u can buy it at pretty much every shop. Not saying it will work but it's a thick white colour so if anything it will definitely hide some redness. Good luck with your interview

    great advice, no skin = no spots OP

    But seriously - everyone gets spots, I know it seems MASSIVE to you but I doubt your interviewer will really care. Sometimes I find it useful to put a plaster over any spots as it stops you from picking at them and making them redder/worse. (though just do that at home, obviously) Just keep it clean and avoid touching it too much and hopefully the redness will have gone down! Good luck with your interview!

    I should clarify my 'Thanks' was directed at the honey, not cheesegrater!

    Thanks for the messages. I'll see if I can find some Sudocrem tomorrow.
