  • I have tried Visine. It didn't do anything. Made me mad, because I had to go out and buy some and the stuff is kind of pricey.


    The hot wash cloth only works if you have a zit that wants to come to a head. If you have one of those deep under the surface ones, it will just make it more red and swollen.


    I have had mixed results w/ toothpaste. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't do much.


    I have heard of and tried MIlk of Magnesia soaked cotton balls. You just rest it on top for as long as you can stand to hold it on there. M.O.M. is supposed to be used to sooth inflammation in your intestines (yep, look for it in that part of the aisle), and it sees to do a good job of bringing down the swelling of a pimple too.


    Good luck.
