ACNE-Has anyone ever lanced a big ZIT?
This cycle has been pretty good with not getting alot of acne, but for about two weeks I got this big ZIT in btw my pecs. It looks nasty because its just a big lump, but it has not come to a head. Today I decided to get on of my extra pinz and attempt to lance it. Well I got a good amount of blood and puss out, but now about 1/2 hour later it feels bigger than it did before...should I go in again and try to drain more.
Is this a bad idea. I ususally leave zits alone but this one hurts and is driving me nuts.

Not sure you might of just irritated it. That is why it got bigger.. Is it an ingrown hair?

it doesnt seem to be. I get these same types of zits on my back...really hard nasty ones that take awhile to go away.

Lance it open again and put a really hot (as hot as u can stand) rag on it that will draw it out, keep doing it several times, Then put antibiotic or neosporone cream on it. It could be a ingrown hair from shaving.

OK...I will try it later before I get my shower.

won't lancing it increase the chances of a scar?

I've always found it best to just let it receed on it's own. Get lots of sleep and keep your stress levels down. Those two things are the major contributers to acne. Trust me... i use to have road rage, I was in a ****y relationship... I was a breeding market for Acne. Now I have slowed things down, and have been zit free for years. That seemed to piss off my Dermatologist, but who cares..hehe
Wash with mild soaps and stay away from caffeine. Get lots of sleep!

biggerbri, it's probably from the tren you were running, that stuff makes me break out whenever I come off it. I got some nasty ones on my back and for a while I would pick at them and try and pop them but it caused a lot of scarring. The ones I left alone settled down and went away after some time with no scarring.

All right bros I'm going to share a little home remedy for getting a boil or pimple to surface so you can pop or drain them:
crack an egg. you'll see this thin skin like substance that the shell adheirs too. Peel off a piece of that skin substance and place it right on top of the pimple or boil. Don't take it off...let it dry right there....yuo'll not even notice it so don't freak out. after that one has dried up repeat the process until a head forms. It might take a little while to draw it out but it'll happen.

ok I have never heard this before but I'll bite. Would you need to hard boil the egg first inorder to seperate the skin and the yolk or can you do it with a raw one?

I will have to try it sometime...this one seems to be subsiding after I lanced it.

Bri, I have been watching your progress since your first cycle because we started at the same time. I am very interested to see how you do on this one. Maybe you should keep a diary like before. If not, just give some periodic progress.

Try putting toothpaste on the zit, brings it to a head pretty quickly, always works for me.

dab a bit of tea tree oil on a cotton bud, and rub the pimple. try not to get it on the skin around coz it burns a wee bit!
mite b a little painful but im telling you, tea tree oil on spots is the best thing iv ever used. dries them out if u apply it 2-3 times a day, after washing, middle of day, then b4 bed. half the time u dont even get a head, and if you do, its usually after a few hours of your first 1-2 applications
its the dogs bo!!ocks!!

If you decide to squeese the sh!t out of the acne (if you have the deep ****ty ones) don't squeese out all of it. Let it be some liquid/blood in it (so that the acne will be even with the skin). Never force it out, only push to help the yellow **** out. If you push out all of it at once you will get ugly scars and holes in your skin. I've learned from experience. I had really nasty bad ass acne on my chest and unfortunately I did it all wrong. You shold also have some kind of creame to put over the mess.
(Sorry for my bad english).
