Its from one of those zits that you keep messing with but they wont pop or go away but just keep getting bigger and bigger like a mountain.

  • an ice pack will help the swelling just like any other swell. try as hard as you can not to mess with it!! (im bad too)
    get a cream and leave it on over night to help dry out the pimple.

  • Applying ice to the affected area for about 15 minutes is one of the simplest way to reduce the swelling.

    Egg white is another tried and true remedy - dab egg white on the area and allow it to dry for about 20 minutes before rinsing it off with tepid water. A toothpaste that contains alkaline may also help - apply it the affected area and leave it on overnight
