I've had a big cyst-like pimple (maybe 7mm wide?) on my chin for 5 days or so and it just won't come to a head! I've already tried applying hot compresses *many* times - nothing. I've also tried benzoyl peroxide and sulfur treatments. Nothing! If anything, it's gotten bigger. It's not painful, which is weird =\ But it's unsightly and I just want it to go away as quickly as possible. What should I do?
hello, it might not actually be a pimple. It could be a type of folliculitis, such as a Furuncle or Carbuncle. then again without a picture or image im strictly going off what your describing, If it is a pimple stress would only make it bigger. I recommend you visit your dermotologist. Dont try to pop it or pick at it tho, it may scar.
