  • are you talking about black heads? those are easier to deal with than pimples in my case. An exfoliator will help with those. So will biore face strips.

  • I recently notices a little bump below my bottom lip, off to the side a bit. It seems nothing like acne at all, it doesn't hurt or itch, it's more like a colorless raised mole. No idea what it is but it's bugging me. Is this what you mean?

  • I had cystic acne fromthe age of 18 to 25! It is horrible (caused by stress). You can't pop them and they strech out the facial skin so much when they are swollen. Now that I will be 40 I can still see a slight sagging where I used to have those damn 3 month long cystic zits!

  • I get them alot and sometimes mine turn into staph but I have found using just regular table salt and a facial soap lathered together to wash and exfoliate my face helps.
