Re: Big anf RED!!

Honestly, I think it's best to leave it alone. The more you pick at it the worse it can get. I know it's hard not to rip the thing off of your face, but try to leave it alone. Ice does help a little, but what type of zit is it? If it's a true cyst, then leave it alone. If it's getting worse and not healing then go see a doctor, but most doctors will say leave it alone and it will go away. Your skin takes time to heal, much like getting a insect bite, cut or a bruise. And zits are little infections, so it takes time for your body to fight it. And if you pick at it, it's just going to introduce more nasty bacteria into it and retard your bodies ability to fight the infection. Keep the site clean and do not pinch, squeeze or pick at it.
