I can't get rid of my pimples and blackheads

I have a pimple problem. Since 4th grade, the same pimple keeps disappearing and reappearing on my chin, then over this last summer, my whole face is starting to break out. I've tried doing the oil wash and using a hot cloth, i've tried using tea tree oil before i hit the sack, and even just done the regular wash my face in the morning and in the shower, but nothing works! I'm afraid that if i go to a doctor, they'll just prescribe some expensive creams that will make it worse! WHAT DO I DO?????

I had three pimples in the same area on my nose!My mom keeps telling me to pop them, and I know your not supposed to do that.My mom popped one and now I have a hole in my skin. What do I do about that scar and the other two?

Hey girl--

1. To treat the popped pimple, apply a disinfectant such as iodine or rubbing alcohol. Then promise to leave it alone. 

2. Resist the urge to pop. Wash with a cleanser with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. To help the pimple go away faster, apply a very warm wash clothe to it-- the white head will emerge faster

good luck

OK, girls here's what you gotta do for black heads or dark spots around your nose-get a really rough washcloth and scrub the area really really good with HOT water and some sort of facial scrub like clean and clear's morning burst scrub, then rinse with COLD water still scrubbing, directly afterward use a cotton swab to apply rapid clear toner( it's in a cylindrical yellow bottle in most stores) it will burn like hell but the result is amazing!

I have the worst skin ever! I went to the derm and had to get 3 different prescriptions to take care of my acne, but it is working. I would recomend going to the doc to anyone, because they do of course no best.

MOD MOD MOD OK, so I have this freakish bump on my arm that won't go away. I've had it for as long as I can remember, and I don't know what it is. It is pinker than the rest of my skin, and it's not any kind of acne. I'm not sure if it's a wart, because it's been there a LONG time. Any ideas on what it is?

Hey girly,
You probably should go to a doctor for this one. They will be able to give you a better idea of what this is.

MODMODMOD I have over active sweatglands in my armpits(i know its gross i hate it!!)and i apply ALOT of deodorant in the morning. Through the day i just tend to sweat a bunch and then i have pit stains. I've avoided wearing white and always kept a jacket on hand (i just push up the sleeves to stay cool) to keep people from seeing. Is there anything i can do to make it stop??



Hey chickadee! I'd check with a doc to see if there's any kind of clinical strength deoderant or anything that can help it. Until then, though, I'd try wearing layers to help conceal it. Maybe, wear a tank top or cami underneath your shirt to avoid the stains Smile

i have two bumps on my face and they are red wat should i do?????

by rebekahlwarren on 1/16/2011 4:30:03 PM


I'm on Accutane. It's freaking magical. It's a five month treatment that shuts down your oil glands. My face is beautiful and I'm only on the 2nd month!! I was actually on the Accutane for my back, I had tons of zits. But, now my back is almost prefect, I only have 1 or 2 zits left. But, the only bad thing about Accutane is that you have to get your blood drawn once a month to make sure youre healthy and your skin and lips can get really dry. I hated needles, but i got over it. I'd do anything for clear skin......

Check out my profile girlies!!

by katherinem17 on 12/31/2010 10:27:45 AM


awesome-im going to ask my dermo about accutane-my bff told me it's a miracle worker, and her skin's FLAWLESS!

by polska456 on 11/6/2010 9:54:35 PM


I totallly agree!!! my mother always pick my pimples and i just hate it!! she wont listen to me since i told her to stop touching my face because if she does it'll damge my skin. sometimes mothers have to listen to their children and right now i have tiny holes on my face from the previous zits she popped.

by princesstutu on 10/3/2010 5:29:56 PM


mod! My mom wont stop picking em! I cant take it and i told her its bad for me but she wont listen! How can i get her to stop?! ~Quinton


Hey girl! My mom does that too so annoying! Tell her to stop or show her an article on how it can scar your face! Why are moms always touching us?!!?!?

So, i've always had acne...but it never REALLY bothered me until now, that im in high school. Anyways, So homecoming is coming up next weekend, and i really want to clear most of my acne by then. but i mostly want to focus on around my lips. My lips are LITERALLY lined with blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. Picking the blackheads and whiteheads hurt, and no matter what i've tried, i cant get the acne to go away. What can i do!? I cant afford to by any medicnes, let alone go to a dermo. HELPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 

Hey girl, picking them isn't a good idea. What you should do is check out options in a drugstore that aren't too pricey and see what they can do for you, or if you can just check in with your doc, they might be able to give you some ideas too. Hope this helps!

MODMODMOD! every time my period is near i get pimples on my face.How can i clear it up at home?



Hey chica! I would use a spot treatment as soon as you feel a blemish coming on. Try Terminator 10 acne spot treatment. You find it for cheap at drugstores, and stores like Target and Walmart. It works wonders! Smile

I have this wierd bump that is lighter than my skin tone, on my wrist. I think it's a pimple, but its pretty big, and it doesn't hurt. I've had it for 3 years. During the 3 year i picked it, a lot, and I think there is a permanent scar. Now I wear bracelets all the time, or longsleeved shirts. Is the pimple permanent?

Hey! Since I can't see it I can't advise you so I think you should ask a doctor. Good luck!

So my mom had poped my black heade with her finger nails and with twiseres and they have left scares. how do i get rid of those scares?


Hey girlie, there are lots of ways to get rid of those scars. Drink a lot of water to keep your skin hydrated. You can put aloe vera, honey or olive oil on your scars to help make them fade quicker. And you can rub ice cubes on them. Just remember no nails next time and use something like Neosporin on the blackhead right after you pop it to prevent scarring.

OMG!!!!!!! i found this company called "lush"! all of their products are made from organic vegtables and fruit! the products actually work too...after the first use the redness in my skin and pimple size was reduced AND my skin was super soft! best skin care i have ever used. in my opinion it works better than proactive and clinique for people who have dry-combination skin! my skin absolutely glows now!!!!!! love it

by beastlybunny on 8/18/2010 11:51:04 AM


Okay I've had acne for 3-4 years now! It's FINALLY starting to go away,, thank God. I've been to a dermatologist, and he only made my skin worse. He gave me topical cream, pills, the works and I think this is what caused my acne to stay so long. I'm not telling anyone to not go to a dermmatologist, just saying it didn't work for me.
What IS making my acne go away is drinking lots of water and green tea, and eating healthy. I also use a clinique face wash and the lotion from cliniques 3 step acne line.

Hope this helps, but it might not because everyone's skin is different Smile

Can u tell me what might be the cause for the breakout?
And what i should do to make my face look better?


Hey girlie, I can tell you what breaks me out sodas and greasy food. Has their been a change in your diet? Have you been stressing out about school lately? they can all cause a break-out also it could be just an aspect of puberty.

Hey girlie, I'm so sorry it sounds like your really ready to do something to help your skin. I think it might be best for you to go see a dermatologist skin can be really finicky and sensitive sometimes you should go to the doctor and see what your skin needs.

MOD I don't really have pimples anymore( I'm 14) maybe like 3 or 4 small pimples, but I have acne scars. I have them along the sides of my face by my ears and on my forehead. I have dark skin, so it's not THAT bad, but I'd like to clear it a bit before school starts in a couple of weeks. Any suggestions? Thanks!


Acne scars are a total bummer - I mean, you already had to deal with pimples, right?  The good news is, they will naturally fade with time.  You might want to read this: The next best thing is microdermabrasion, a treatment that can be done at your dermatologist's office.  And remember, never pop your pimples - that makes them more likely to scar.

around the fourth of july, i got a zit on my nose, and it didnt go away, i tried doing everything (including on the spot treatment) and it didnt go away. i didnt dare pop it though. now the zit is gone, but where it used to be on my nose, there is a nice big red spot on it. it looks like a zit, but it's just a red circle. how do i get rid of it? how do i cover it up? thanks MOD, :]]


Hey! Sounds like the zit left a scar. Most blemishes will do this, but you can cover the scar up with a concealer. Find a concealer that matches your skin tone and apply it on the area. Some dermatologists may also be able to give you a lotion that will fade scars. Smile

Hi girl, try shopping around at your local drugstore. Opt for a wash that is specifically for oily skin and try it out!

What's a good acne product for sensitive skin that I can use on pimples that's a little stronger than my regular face wash? I use Stridex pads when I break out for Sensitive skin but they don't really work.

Hey girl, you can try spot treatment: Neutrogena has a great On The Spot acne treatment cream my sister uses.

I broke out on my nose, cheeks, and forehead today, so I tried some natural acne remedies I read about online. They reduced the size of most of my pimples by a little bit, but they left my face really, really red! What should I do?
Thanks so much!

Hey girl, you can use foundation or concealer to even up your color. In general, however, I'd stick to gentler methods: sounds like those remedies massively dried out your skin.

How do I clear up my pores on my nose? They are dark and close together. Any suggestions?

Hey girl,

A pore-refining mask {which you can pick up at any pharmacy can definitely lessen the appearance of the pores on your nose! Cleansing your skin with a gentle face wash every day might also help.

MOD MOD ok, so In Summer, i sweat alot.. what i didn't notice is that i got pimples between myy boobs.. how can i stop that?


Hey girl, after you work out you could take a shower or at least be sure to wipe that area with an antibacterial wipe or something like Stridex, little wet pads with salicylic acid (an acne-fighting ingredient)! You could also see a dermatologist to see if they have any suggestions.

Vanessa J.

by *zaina*all*te*way* on 8/7/2010 12:46:08 PM


if i were u depending on ur age dont use epiduo cuz that makes ur face burn and peel just wait till u get older just wash ur face every nite morning and even put like a cream or lotion towards where in the morning ur face will be fresh and also what i learn if u dont pick at ur zits they are not as noticable as u think


P.S. I just wanted to say when I said masks in the last comment, I meant face masks that harden and you peel/wash off of course, not like actual masks! Just clarifying, Lol.

There is a product I use called Acne Free i bought it at Target and it is the best acne stuff I have ever bought. I have boughten Proactive and to tell you the truth Acne Free worked 10 times better. It has a wash,toner, and then cream and you use it in night and morning but give it a try because trust me it works.

mod mod mod i have these really tiny pimples there so tiny but there all over my face do u know a good product that can take them off i use clearsill now so far i am not seeing an improvments


I'm sorry to hear about the breakouts!  I would definitely recommend reading this:  It says that what you need to take care of acne is a combo of a wash with salicylic acid and a benzoyl peroxide cream.  You'll have to do some label-reading at the drugstore, but there are lots of products out there that have these ingredients.  xoxo

what cleansers and face lotions are good for acne prone and sensitive skin?

It all depends on what works for you! You have to give different brands a chance.  Next time you're at the grocery store, or a drug store, take a walk down the face cleansing aisle.  Look for products that help fix your specific problems (blackheads, oil, pimples)!

my face is almost cleared up but i always have a bunch of bright red zits in between my eyebrows! I have face soap and eveything and it works everywhere else! Why don't they go away?is there anything i can do? I dont op pimples, i no that has consequences but what can i do? I keep my bangs up and off my face and its help along with soaps but they dont go away.
srry its so long

Theres not a whole lot you can do. Youre at an age where your face is going to break out and not always look its best. I wash my face every morning and night and i still break out a ton. So just put on some concealer and dont worry about it. It happens to the best of us Smile xoxo kerra

If heard that if you mix a teensy bit of baking soda with your water it helps clear acne. I don't know how true it is but it never hurts to try!

by maremoze17 on 8/3/2010 4:57:12 PM


Hey girl, I hope this is helpful to you, because I know its helpful for me. When ever my acne and the such kicks up, I mix sugar and water to make a paste and I massage it into my skin. When it feels like its tightening my skin, or before, I rinse it all off with luke warm water, and after a few uses {not on the same day} my skin is noticably softer.

by SJSIris on 8/3/2010 1:23:33 PM


i use clean and clear over night obviouslly everynight
and i have to say my pimples are really going away
and my skin looks way better and feels softer.

1. boil water- PARENT SUPERVISION!!!
2. hold your head over it with a towel around- you should just get steam, NOTHING else.
3. gently push them out with q-tips.

Do you know any face washes for under $12 that will help my face? It's not oily and it's not dry, so it's like perfect, but I need a better face wash that would be available around  MO. Like I'm going to the mall on Thursday or Friday so like even West County mall in Chesterfield would work. But any ideas? Mod!

Hey girl, I'm sorry about the skin troubles.  The good news is, they are probably more noticeable to you than they are to anyone else, so I wouldn't fret.  Keeping up on washing your face daily (but not overdoing it!) will help to keep them in check.  Also, making sure to use oil-free foundation and make-up if you wear it is really helpful.  Check out this article for more tips:  xoxo

MODMODMOD My dad always tells me to pick pimples cuz it helps...But ive read articles that say to not pick them.Who is right? me or my dad?


Hey chica, it's actually bad to pick pimples. It can be tempting, but it's best to leave them alone to heal on their own, so that you don't make it worse, or cause an infection from the bacteria and germs on your hands.

MOD MOD MOD MOD!!!!!!! I have VERY bad pimples. I'm gonna be in a fashion show where my mom works in a couple of days. Do you know any masks or stuff that can be made out of houshold products? I'm alergic to avacado so I cant use it.


Hey girly, if you can get to the store, Terminator10 is a great spot treatment for pimples! It's really cheap, and you can find it in an orange tube at the drugstore, or Target/Walmart with all of the face washes and stuff. If you don't want to buy anything, some people swear by putting a dot of toothpaste on their pimple or zit before bed at night to dry it out. Also, avoid touching your face alot, and avoid wearing heavy makeup until then! Smile

my skin is shiny what should i do? also i have acne scars what do i do to make them less noticeable without makeup?


As for the shiny skin, you could use oil blotting pads or use face wipes or cleansers like round Stridex or Oxy pads. Make sure to wash your face twice a day (once in the shower and either the morning/night, when you don't take a shower). For the acne scars, I don't think there's much you can do except for wait and try to prevent other acne. If you feel confident about yourself and have a great attitude, nobody will even notice them! Try something fun with your hair or a cute necklace to draw the attention somewhere else.

my face is always shiny! i put makeup on in the morning but my the middle of the day my face is really shiny again.... Any suggestions???


Hey girl, maybe you could try oil blotting pads. Tuck some into your purse and then discreetly use them in the bathroom. Also make sure that your makeup is non-comedogenic (non-pore-clogging) and also oil-free. You might also want to try a dry powder/mineral makeup to help avoid shine.

MOD!MOD!MOD! I read on this one beauty website about putting oatmeal on your face as an acne mask. I tried it about 20 minutes ago and I was wondering if you have ever tried it? Is it ok to use the little oatmeal packs? And if it worked, what results are there?


Hey girlie, I haven't tried it. I have used avacado and it made my skin feel rejuvanated. and you will prob. be able to tell if it worked for you and the next day and a half.

I have a bad habit of touching my face alllll the time. Whether its popping zits or anything. How can I stop??


Hey girlie try putting a rubber band or a bracelet on your wrist that you can play with when you have the urge to touch your face.

I use Acanya--it's gentle yet effective. it took only 3 to 5 weeks to clear the worst of my acne, and i saw less zits after only a few days.

by artgirl116 on 7/16/2010 12:40:44 PM


My sister went to a dermatologist. She had to get blood drawn and she was always grossed out. The good news, though, was that she got pills that really worked. I remember that she was so happy because every other acne wash or cream never worked for her.

I cant get rid of the pimples on my forehead and school's starting soon i think i'm in the same class as my crush idon;t know what to do!

by fluffyfurblu on 7/15/2010 9:54:18 PM


just wash ur face (but not too much.) dont use harsh things on it, dont pop pimples, dont touch ur face with ur fingers unless they r clean and dont pile on the makeup! go natural and dont worry bout it.

mod mod mod mod mod
my pimples wont go away ! Ive went to the dermatologist and they gave me pills to take for two weeks i took them and nothing happened he said to take them until Ive ran out ( its been like a month and a half ) and i still have my acne and previous scars ! help !


Sadly, dealing with acne is not an instant thing! It takes a while for it to go away.
Unfortunately I've had acne for years and have tried various things, so
I understand. I think the pills don't start working for about two
weeks, so maybe you could ask your dermatologist if you could get more,
or try a different prescription. He should be able to help you with
your acne and maybe suggest some creams or something to try. Make sure
that you are washing your face daily and doing whatever the
dermatologist says to do. Make another appointment so he can check on
how you're doing. Also, getting enough sleep and trying to be stress-free are helpful.

MOD What are some home remedies to stop and prevent having pimples? Would putting hot water in a bowl with lemon juice and putting your head over the bowl with a towel stop pimples? Or would it open the pores? And what do i put on afterwards to remove it?

MOD! I have a question,how come I get blackheads and small pimples in my ears ocasionally? They are not quite in my ear but on a spot that people can see them. Please help!


hey girl that's not so common, but ears are skin too and need to be cleans. Try using your fave blackhead scrub on your eyes, too, but I'm sure they arent that noticable. So other than cleaning them each night, I wouldn't touch them or bother them too much.

So we and my boyfriend broke up like two months ago. Hes the first guy i've ever kissed and we talked for like eight months. We've dated three times and always end up getting back together but he hasn't come back this time. He's dating (and kissing) other girls and cheating on them too. All of a sudden he seems really popular with the girls and he is DEFINITELY taking advantage of that. I don't think i like him anymore and i know that he doesn't deserve me and that i'm better than that. But why does it hurt to see him with another girl? And why do i wish everyday that he'll text me and come back to me.

Hey babe, that's really hard. Especially because he was the first guy you ever kissed, but I promise there are more guys out there who are worth your time. There are guys out there who won't cheat, will put you above all other girls, and will give you the attention you deserve!  With time you'll get over him. Hang in there. Hang out with friends who you love, do fun things you enjoy, and don't limit yourself.

OK, this summer will be my first summer on my period(i got it in the fall), and i'm really scared! In the summer, i swim like crazy! WHat'll i do when i'm on my period? No matter what anyone says, I'm not using a tampon! ever! They freak me out! I can't swim while wearing a pad can i? help!


Hey girlie,


If tampons make you uncomfortable, it's totally your choice not to use them.  But you can swim with them while you can't swim in pads, so it's something to consider!  If not, just wear your bathing suit top with shorts and focus on getting a tan or playing a game with your buds outside the water Smile

Smile and if you have lots a zits by your hairline, shampoo every day because thats the grease from your hair gettin into your pores

I've got the absolute worst acnie, but when i started swimming my skin was dry, but acnie free and I used a moisturizer that got rid of the dryness. Now swimming is over and my skin is really bad again. Is there anything that I can use to get it back to like it was when I was swimming?

mod mod my face gets really dry and regular lotion doesn't work for me do you have any face product suggestions


Hey chica, I use Proactiv. You don't have to buy the whole kit you can purchase the repairing lotion. Check out Neutrogena and Clearasil products too. Smile

MOD MOD MOD I get huge zits at my hairline, it is soooo disgusting. any tips for them to go away?


Hey girlfriend, that could have something to do with the type of products you're putting in your hair. So for a few weeks refrain from putting any kind of hairspray, gel or mousse in your hair and see what happens. Before you go out and get an acne kit, try out applying witch hazel to your zits. Hope this helps! Smile

OK so the valentines day dance is comming up and I have a SUPER cute black dress it has little white diamonds all over and goes down to barley past my knees the sleeves are spegety straps that tie togeth. THe problem Is I dont have shoes or know how to put my hair! Plus It is a Maskerade party so we have to wear maskes what mask shoud I Were?? This is my first real dance So i am VERY tense please help! THaks SO MCH! LOve,Dogloverforever!

Hey girl, I'd try a cute half-up, half-down do for your hair: try curling your hair a bit too and using a barrette or clip with white rhinestones to pull your outfit together. As for shoes, go for silver flats or sandals with tights: you'll illuminate the room.

1. Say your name 10 times.
2. Say your mom's name 5 times.
3. Say your crush's name 3 times.
4. Paste this to 4 other quizzes. If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday, but if you read this and do not paste this, then you will have very bad luck! SEND THIS TO 5 QUIZZES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOU'RE DONE PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSH'S NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS ON THE SCREEN. THIS IS SO FREAKY BECAUSE IT ACTUALLY WORKS

by h2oaddict on 2/3/2010 4:14:46 PM


MOD MOD I used a cream for my zits that had benzoyl peroxide in it, but my skin is too sensitive. What else can I do?


Hey chica, the trick is finding the right acne product for your skin. Since you have sensitive skin, when you go to look for creams and soaps, be sure to read the ingredients to see if they cater to sensitive skin. Try Neutrogena or Clearisil. Smile
