Ok, this is a face emergency. I have a HUGE cystic acne spot coming up on my chin. What can I put on it tonight to help minimize it?

Thanks so much for your help.

man oh man! I know what I'd put on it, but that's because I own the product (Mario Badescu's drying lotion) which would fix it in a jiffy.

So I'm curious to know the response to this as well, my dear Liz!...in case I don't have that on hand.

This is a great topic...do you have any acne spot treatment on hand? That might work...otherwise...I'm not sure.

Oh goodness I'm no help! Embarassed

My husband was laughing at me for posting this question and now I am annoying him because I am digging through all of my drawers looking for remnants. I haven't had cysts in years, surely not one this big.

This is what I found in my closet:

Yonka Juvenil and Creme 15
Decleor Ylang Ylang Balm
La Prairie Blemish Control Gel
Ole Henrikson Blemish Attack
PSF O2 Serum
Clindagel (topical antibiotic)

Now I am going to dig through my sample drawer. I like MB Drying lotion too. I used to always have it on hand. Lately, I haven't needed to spot treat anything and the lotion was drying up so I tossed it and didn't replace it.

Liz,
I have tried this before with great success so I hope it will work for you... I microwave a cup of distilled water until boiling (about 90 seconds) and then I take a clean washcloth, dip an edge in the water and hold it on the cyst until it cools and repeat this process for about 15 minutes. I have done this at night before bed and have awoken the next morning with it considerably smaller and less painful. HTH!

These are some things you can try that you may have on hand:

Tea tree oil

toothpaste (the paste not the gel)

something with glycolic in it

Good luck!

Toothpaste is supposed to work wonders.

I would try the hot water & washcloth trick (look up the Zeno machine on the web for explanation why heat like this could help) and then put the Ylang-ylang balm on it before you turn in for the night. I am not sure about your other products - be careful not to overdo - multiple products could make the situation worse.

Thanks for asking! This has actually been the quickest disappearing cyst that I have ever had. Monday, it took up my whole chin, and today it is just a little red spot. Pretty amazing, I must have done something right. Basically, in the morning, I put on my clindagel, then la prairie gel. At night, I put on clindagel again and periodically throughout the night, I put on yonka juvenil. Before I went to bed I put on Ole Henrickson's blemish attack.

I also have a rave for kevin aucoin's sensual skin enhancer and everyday mineral's concealer. I used this at the beginning of the week because my chin was very red. It stayed on flawlessly through my 90 min hot yoga class. I didn't have any other makeup on, and my chin looked natural.

Tea Tree Oil...every hour dab a little on. That is what helped my cystic acne on my chin. My husband's grandmother told him to put honey on his zit and put a bandaid on it overnight...it really helped too. Visine really does "get the red out" of a zit before you apply concealer.

Good luck! Just DONT PICK!
