Take a shower every day, and keep your face from getting too oily.

Use facewash made for acne and possibly get a prescription if it gets bad enough.

I am another one of the lucky ones who only gets one small one now or then.

It's great......:p

I had quite a few when I was younger. I used to use Biactol, but it's debatable how much that helped. I know it's worked for other people though. I basically just had to wait for nature to take it's course :rolleyes:

Mind you, I still get the odd one now, and I'm bloody 30!

I'd concur with keeping your skin less oily though.

Some of it is genetic. Ask your parents, older siblings, etc, if they had 'em bad, you probably will too.

When I was young I had 'em, not as bad as some people, but definately annoying. Tried lots of different meds and all that other stuff, but the real thing that got rid of them was time. It is still a good idea to shower daily though, pimples or not!

What's worse than zits are cold sores (aka "canker sores") you get them for seemingly no reason (although drinking too much pop can do it, or not getting enough sleep while stressing out) and they really hurt, like on the tip of your tongue!

Anyway, that was another great thing about getting past the teen years...

Erm, canker sores are those burning dealies in your mouth that hurt alot. They form on the tongue and inside of cheeks. Cold sores are the dealies that form on or above your lip. I get those way to often for my liking. :mad:

Heh, I think I've had two zits in my life, although I got one on my neck that is always taken off while shaving :mad:

I'm a very mad person that likes the word "dealy" :p

ZITS!! nnoooooooooooooooooooo!!!
To keep clear make sure you wash loads, if have long fringe keep it un-greasy, or burn them leaving your face horrible scarred for latter life ;)

I get one every once in a while. I use neutrogena (sp) stuff to help, and it does to. But yea, you also have to wash your face and eat healthy for a while if you want them to go away.

05-26-2003, 03:03 AM
yea i just get one on every once and a while and it just sticks out like :eek: but ill try some of the stuff

The worst ones are those little bastards inside your nose. They hurt like crazy. Oh oh! And those little nasty ones inside your ear that never go away. I get zits pretty bad, but I don't worry unless they hurt or look really gross. Then I just put a dab of soap on 'em before I go to bed and they pop out really clean in the morning.

05-26-2003, 04:30 PM
I'm using Clearisil to keep em at bay, works most of the time.

05-26-2003, 04:39 PM
What a charming topic!

OK, OK, I did click the link out of curiosity :p

Zits are just clogged pores from dirt and oil. What you eat has no effect on whether you get zits or not, unless maybe you eat something that makes your skin oily in which case it would make you more susceptible to zits. But, I have no idea what type of food would do that. Just wash well, maybe use an astringent if you are really worried about them. If you decide to pop your zits, be gentle. If you squeeze extremely hard, or are very rough in other ways, you can leave scars. One or two might not be that bad, but I've seen older people whose faces have more craters then the moon. You don't really want to go your whole life like that, not if you can help it.

Cold sores are herpetic lesions. Better watch out where you put your hands during an outbreak, you don't want those lesions on your balls.

Backne is a pain in my ass.

I pop zits ocassionally. It's not going to scar if you don't force it. As long as the zit is ready and is dried out somewhat, it won't leave a big scar. A have a few, but most often I don't scar. Oh, and Munik is right, you can't get zits from eating chocolate.

One of the best ways to get rid of zits is to get lots of cardiovascular excersize. Ride your bike instead of driving your Toyota, and you'll get rid of zits as well as sve money to spend on the hunnies. ;)

Lets see, I got a wide range on the back, forehead, and even some on my shoulders!

Beat that!:p

05-27-2003, 02:22 AM
I always have a few. I just make sure i was my face like 3 times a day, and most of the time they don't last long. I've had like 2 on my butt before!

05-27-2003, 02:35 AM
Time is the best medication. I use to get them alot and I hated them but then I just stopped caring about them and stressing over them and they now come out every once and awhile and they aren't that bad.

:lsduel: :duel:

05-27-2003, 02:41 AM
Yeah, I don't worry about them anymore. But I always end up having one right between my eyes, and up about a quarter inch, like a big, glowing, greasy, oozing, starting to develop it's own gravitational pull, "Hey look at me I'm a HUGE zit!", third eye thingy. I think my skin does it to spite me. It's fun to talk to someone while they stare at your forehead.

05-27-2003, 10:30 AM
They stay away from me, I stay away from them ;)
*zit comes running after Z*

05-27-2003, 02:06 PM
I'm 14 and I don't have them yet. But i'll get a zit every month. The zits might hit me hard, they might not. My dad didn't really get but my mom did and she still does.

Dude, I'm pretty sure that having a herpes outbreak sucks worse then most things. But, on a humerous note, this has got to be the first time I've seen someone use herpes to trump someone else's suffering.
