Just leave'em alone. They'll go away on their own. If you're really desperate, you can talk to your family physician for a prescription.

Burning and cutting!! Oh my goodness, are you serious?I agree with just leaving them alone. Use mild soap on your face when cleansing.

I am thinking burning and cutting would irritate your skin causing your whole face to turn read. You can use aloe vera cream, that helps some, or ask a doctor they provide great lotions as well. And wash yourself often (not too much but ya know) like take a shower every morning is what i am thinking of...

Burning and cutting?! Holy sh-- that's going to do NOTHING but scar your face.

I use a powerful combination of off-the-shelf remedies that I concocted that seems to work pretty well, but my face isn't as sensitive as others. I use maximum strength Stridex pads on my face first (quite liberally), then I use this clear cream stuff (I don't remember what it's called, but I'll find out) on my face right after the Stridex (also applied quite literally). It all absorbs into the skin after about 10 minutes, but I have to remember to wash my face thoroughly in the morning.
My sister says a good alpha-hydroxy cream works well, though I never tried it.

As far as prevention is concerned, try keeping your face cleaner while you eat. Also, whenever you finish eating, wash your face thoroughly. Generally, just eat better, also. Diet is a big part of breakouts. Stay away from fried foods, shrimp and mussels, and chocolate. This is just what has worked for me.

If you have an old pimple thats turning white or is ready to be popped, shave over it (with cream on it) like ILS said. It sounds really bad but its not at all.

Wash your face a lot with soap and water. That works best.

I am on perscription medication. It does very nicely.

I heard pimples come from excessive masturbation, so I'd stop doing you know what amigo...  Smile

LOL, but seriously man, my friend's mom is an R.N. and says if you stay away from greasy foods, colas, chocolate, or anything else that's pretty much junk food, that will help to prevent new pimples from forming.

I'm sure your case is mild, but I've seen some people with the most disgusting acne in the world, sure has got to suck to be them.

Hmm... greasy foods, colas, chocolate-- the three main food groups! And I don't break out. Oh well, I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

I am on Minocycline 100 MG pills 2x per day. I also have Cleocin Pledgets (Like Stridex Pads) and Sulfoxl (High power topical cream). All of the chocolate and greasy food stuff is bull shit. It is an urban legend. I know an iron man triathelete who has 7% body fat and he has pimples. My acne really isn't that bad at all. But, if I don't take my medication for a day or 2, then it gets bad. But, if you have a really white and ugly one, take a hot shower and pop it (after a hot shower it doesn't hurt at all) or just shave it off. Both are very painless and they don't leave scars.

My grandpa taugh my a great way to get rid of acne thats been a family secret for years...Just mix a half cup of vinegar and mix it with four cups of salt,then put it all over your face,then rub in a circular motion for 5-7 minutes. Works every time. REALLY try it.

Urinate liberally on a towel, then wrap face in towel for about half an hour. take towel off. do not rinse off.
It won't get rid of pimples, but you will smell so bad that people will stay so far away from you that they won't notice your zits.

Seriously, if it is just a pimple or two, wait til they get white, then squeeze the livin crap out of it. If it is a whole plethora of em' then get some medical advice.

I tried so many off the self thingamigagigers that did nothing but cost $3.50-$6.00 a pop.

But that was until I mixed them all together  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up.

Benzol Peroxide is incorporated into many acne perscriptions and will kill the contaminants in the clogged pore. The best things I've used are RetinA, Avita, ProActive, or just a tube of 10% Benzol Peroxide.

The only thing which worked effectively for me was Dalacin C taken orally for a long period of time. The bad effect it had was that my immune system got really weak and I was susceptible to all kinds of things.
Now I'm using Dalacin T (topical) and Fucidin on my face.
I've also read a study recently where acne is successfully cured by taking 5-10 grams of Pantothenic Acid (vitamin B5) a day. I was going to try but there's no way one can get pure Pantothenic Acid on our pokey little island  Sad I'm trying taking B-Complex instead.

I use Sebanil, which is basically rubbing alcohol to clean the areas, followed by Clearasil cream overnight to remove it...in the morning its ok. If they are white, then I massage it with a toothpick until it bursts, then rub it off...

If you figured it out, and washed enough you would not have a pimple problem. Pimples come from oily skin, which is preventable by washing.

Consult a dermatologist. Sure, washing prevents oily skin, but that's not enough against spots in most cases. Did you know that skin becomes oily a while after you wash it? Don't tell me you'd run to the bathroom with soap in your hand every hour to wash your face.
I am still convinced about my statement.

Not every hour but more frequently, like when you wake up in the middle of the night for a pee, and a couple times more a day when able.

According to the creators of Proactiv, acne is caused by genes, not foods or exessive (sp?) exercise.

Industrial strength detergents. That will break up the oil. Kind of like the stuff they used in the Exxon Valdez spill.

At the very least, you'll probably never have to shave again!

Pimples can be caused by many things:

1. They can be hereditary
2. They can be caused by puberty
3. Allergic reactions
4. Stress
5. Oily/unwashed skin

Think about it - pimples are caused by bacteria. What kills bacterial? Salt! So the answer is simple, cut open your face and wash the wounds with salt!

Seriously, just leave 'em alone. They look better now than popped.

KLM672 I highly recommend you use a grainy facial scrub,
twice a day in the morning and the evening along with wiping your face with a steamy hot towel followed by claryfying toner on cotton wool.

makes you feel refreshed and gets rid of the blemishes and shit on your face.

And most definately stay away from heated fat and oil like fryers and should you eat fatty foods drink plenty of water with it.

I got a question for ya guys... I dont get bad pimples on my face at all really. very rare actually. However I sometimes get them on my shoulders and back and chest area. Nothing bad really, but I dont like them at all. Now my question is for christmas I got a gift set of Curve cologne and it comes with shower gel as well as body moisturizer. With all the scented items used in this stuff to make it smell good, could that pose a problem to create new pimples? I dont consider myself to have sensitive skin at all, just dry. So anyone else know if this could help with dry skin or just lead to a break out? The stuff smells so damn good, but it would suck if it back fires! so any suggestions would be great. thanks guys!

Cheers!

Only way to find out is to try. Sorry.

And for the record, diet has no effect on breakouts. Some foods can give you pimples, but it isn't the grease. It's an allergic reaction to one of the chemicals.

What about Blackheads? I have large pores on my nose...so I get tons of blackheads on my nose (just on my nose). I went to the dermatologist...as blackheads are not like regular acne and are impossible (practically) to get rid of. Im using Tazorac now and she prescribed minocycline but i have not taken it yet. For those of you who use minocycline...how does it work for you? Anyone use Tazorac? Have you ever used those biore strips? You would be surprised how much they get out...but it always seems to cause infections  Sad About the oil...sure washing your face helps but it also depends on how much oil your sebaceous glands secrete...which is hereditary like my large pores  Big grin Anyone have some good suggestions at getting black heads out without causing infections?

I would love to try your remedy, but I'm just a bit worried about using four CUPS of salt with half a cup of vinigar.

If that is that case, I might as well just use salt because the vinegar would i think just dissolve in it!

please can you clarify whether what you have said is incorrect or not.

Thanks.  Smile

Soak a sheet of 60-grit sandpaper in a gallon of cranberry juice and lighter-fluid. Use a sanding-block on your face until you see muscle. Any remaining zits will be hidden under the gauze for 6 weeks.

Lainhol is completely right! Wash your face atleast 3 times a day with soap or clerasil or whatever. You'r skin becomes oily again because you touch it! If you don't touch your face, then your skin won't be oily! Shaving it won't do it! It'll create rashes and more pimples will come up! JUST WASH THE DAMN THING EVERY DAY!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy  Smile  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

you dont get oil on your face from touching it, dude. Oil, or sebum, is produced in the pores and some peoples pores produce more oil than necessary.
