Just ride it out, it sucks but atleast you are on the road to clear skin. Drink lots of water and that will help with the dry eyes and lips. Your oil production is going to come to a halt in about a week or so. I use to be so oily, like 2 hours after applying make up it would be running down my face and now I never have to re-apply my makeup as my face has absolutely no oil. Same goes for the hair your hair will start to get dry as well. Chin up though it will be over before you know it. Good Luck!..

Thanks!!What about the whiteheads?can I remove them with a needle..

Comment #3

I wouldnt. I experienced the same thing as you and when I began popping them not only after half an hour they were back but all around them whiteheads were popping out of nowhere like they were damn mushrooms...

Idontknowrly - definitely going through that same thing right now. when I pop one it's a sure thing another one or multiple are going to form around the one I popped. and just when I thought my I.B. was ending it's gotten worse again! eff the whiteheads man, hate them so much it looks like your face is about to give birth to sebum mutants. so ya I wouldn't recommend popping them, unless it's seriously like ready to burst and a pop mark looks at least a bit better lol. but be prepared for more to pop up around them...

Use a gentle spot treatment if you must, like burt's bees spot treatment...I used 100% tea tree oil for a while but that became too harsh.I wouldnt drain the whiteheads,ur skin scars more easily on this stuff...ask your derm instead next time you visit.if anything breaks open,use helps healI broke out sooooo badly month one and currently am at the middle on month 2 and I have no pimples. I looked HORRID the first month,but ull look great after.I know it's rly frustrating to see it get so horrifically bad before it gets better,but trust me, it's worth it.Please resist urges to pick/pop.If something needs to be drained then let your derm do it. If you need any support or advice,feel free to PM me.Good luck!..

Put neosporin ointment on them, it will make them come to a head and heal faster...
