Huge Painful Zit near my Chin by Charles Wullydale - Sat, 21 Oct 2017 14:07:38 EST ID:gF6N4Ylr No.55145 Ignore Report Quick Reply

Hello /MED/

I have a fucking huge zit on my face near my chin. It is so painful that it hurts to open and close my jaw/mouth. It hurts to smile with both sides of my mouth.

Any clever ideas? This shit sucks.

For real, I can only chew with one side of my mouth

Does your household have a numbing/first-aid cream? Most of them have some kind of pain relief ingredient. I've used it on painful zits before, though it will need to be reapplied every so often. Gets you through the days.

i got 2 remedies for zits, and i am not bullshitting.

remedy 1: put a glob of toothpaste on the zit and let it dry. as it dries it absorbs some of the shit from under the skin and makes the swelling go down.

remedy 2: mix a lil baking soda and water, and put it on the guaze part of a band-aid. stick that on the zit. the baking soda will draw out some of the shit and fluids, making the zit smaller

A zit is just a small abscess. OP should treat it by applying a hot wet cloth maybe a microwaved beach towel to soften the skin and bring the abscess to a head. Then lance and drain it.

OP here, thanks for the suggestions guys.

The zit has totally healed on the surface of the skin and is no longer painful, but now there is a lump below the skin that's about the size of a lima bean. Totally invisible from the outside, but I can feel it's there. I've never used chewing tobacco but I assume this is sort of what it feels like to pack a fat lip.

I would consider poking it with a sharp pin/sewing needle. But a trick for most thinks is Epsom salts. Amazing stuff. It's not actually a salt. But have had bad bug itchy painful unidentified bug/spinder bites and applied with a wet paper towel and like 10 minutes later what was a few large quarter sized red welts were just gone.

Epsom salts, read up on the uses.
