I've got a large red zit on my cheek and when i touch it it really hurts, like an electric shock kind of feel?

Why is this? It huuurts :(I've got a large red zit on my cheek and when i touch it it really hurts, like an electric shock kind of feel?
it probably got irritated somehow,

maybe from you touching it so much

after it started hurting the first time. jk

just put some toothpaste on it

and dont touch it again.

itll get better overnight.I've got a large red zit on my cheek and when i touch it it really hurts, like an electric shock kind of feel?
It may be infected. If it's that sore, get it checked out by a skincare specilist or doctor. Biggest tip - don't touch it. There is alot of bacteria on your hands that you are passing onto it each time you touch it, just leave it alone and see if it goes down. Don't pop it either, it may leave a nasty scar. Leave it and see a professional if it's really sore. Hope I helped.
dont cover it completely with makeup, that will stop oxygen from getting to it. probably best to get it checked out if it doesnt go away, but resist the temptation and don't squeeze it!
Sounds like cystic acne(pus-filled bacterial infected pore) that is deep below the skin surface. Time to call a dermatologist.
It's okay you can power your T.V. with it!!
you have a pimple, wash your face more, quit touching it

dont pop it, it will scab up
It's just a bad one, put some antiseptic cream on it it will help.

How do u make ur face zit free & flawless?

because im emo (but we r not tlking about tht) %26amp; most emo's have flawless skin. HOW?!?! please help me!!!How do u make ur face zit free %26amp; flawless?
If you wear makeup, make sure you wash it off every night before you go to bed. Wash your face first thing in the morning too because oils build up on your face overnight. (oil = zits) Also, use a face wash that is appropriate for your skin. (I like St. Ives medicated scrub. It exfoliates and makes your skin nice and smooth) If you use Sea Breeze Astringent (I use the blue kind, it's for sensitive skin) it will help dry out your current zits as well as keep you from getting new ones. Just use it before you go to bed every night and you should see a difference pretty soon.

Just remember, the worst thing you can do is to keep trying a bunch of different products. It can cause a reaction and you will break out even worse. Pick one or two products and stick to them! =)How do u make ur face zit free %26amp; flawless?
every morning before you eat breakfast have a cup of hot water with the juice of two lemons

hope it helps!!!
you seemed pretty obsessed with letting ppl know you're emo than being emo. just scrub your god damn face every night and use acne cream.
Okay ummm.... being ';EMO'; has absolutely nothing to do with your skin. Not all ';EMOS'; have perfect skin... ok? That was not even necessary to say... so grow up.

Wash your face a lot... When it is feeling oily, wash it. Your face should be washed at least twice a day, especially before bed. Get something for acne that would be good for your skin like Clearasil. I use the Clearasil Daily Oil Control face wiped so my face is always clean and not oily, then I don't break out. You just need to take care of your skin.... make it a priority.

Don't eat a lot of greasy foods and crap and you body will be healthy along with your skin. Good Luck....
try this Magic Peeling Glove - i have started using it - no creams or lotions needed - all natural

you can get it here -
What you put inside your body shows on your skin (think of a mirror effect). Drink lots of water, you're skin will become clean and clear! Feel good, you'll automatically look good! :)

PS Mention to being ';EMO'; wasn't necessary.
wash your face everyday stop eating junk food and drinking soda and dont touch your face to much it work for me it should work for you
i heard that drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day and excercise is actually really good for your face and gives a clear complexion. also wash off all your make up before going to bed. if you have proactiv, i would try that because the toner step actually makes your skin look even. i would wash your face every morning and night, and at night i use a gentle cleanser to remove all the bad stuff and then i use a deep cleansing scrub directly after to get more deep into the skin and get rid of the rest of the bad stuff, because i have a cosmetologist friend who said that way you can get cleaner skin and it actually works pretty well. i would also moisturize my face at night but try using something that is oil-free so it isn't greasy. once a week if you use a deep pore cleansing mask that will also help (the best ones i think are from biore, neutrogena, and anything from bath and body works). i hope this helps! =)

also if you go to and scroll down to where it says natural homemade skincare tips, they can help too. =)

What is the diffrence between acne zit and pimple?

acne - An inflammatory disease of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles of the skin that is marked by the eruption of pimples or pustules, especially on the face.

zit - slang. A pimple.

pimple - A small swelling of the skin, usually caused by acne; a papule or pustule.What is the diffrence between acne zit and pimple?
Acne is a more serious medical condition. The so called Zits will whelp up and will scar your face. You see people with those little places that look like caves in their faces, that is scars from acne. A pimple is just that, a pimple. you only get those once in a while. If you are getting really big pimples-zits!, SEE YOUR DOCTOR!!!! You need to see what your doctor recommends before you try over the counter stuff. You may need prescriptions to clear up your skin. Please take the time to call and talk to a nurse. You can find a ';talk to a nurse service'; in your yellow pages of your phone book. Hope this helps!

Ladybbug1What is the diffrence between acne zit and pimple?
There isn't a difference.
zits are bigger, and are infected.
they're the same thing, sweetie (:
If you鈥檙e looking for accurate acne information, best to see a dermatologist. Some people believe doctors are predisposed to take the easy way to deal with acne鈥?prescription drugs. But, with many, this simplistic answer may not be the appropriate course of action. Some feel that such prescription drugs just treat the symposium and not the underlying cause. But, a local dermatologist is still your best starting point.

For me personally, I discovered a great informational acne treatment site. Not only is there good information/articles but I got their audio e-book and following it鈥檚 advice can now say that my acne is a thing of the past! Keep in mind, were all different and there are various types of acne, so what works for some may not be totally effective for all.

Bottom line, hang in there, you will get past this! Sincere best wishes and good luck.

Oh, by the way the site that helped me is:

the main difference is how its spelled
acne is inflammation of pores resulting most commonly in pimples and zits
Maybe quanity of what is in it....Ugh!!!!!!!!
i would say, if there had to be a difference, is that an acne zit is more like something one would get all the time while a pimple you just get every once in a while. acne is you have multiple blemishes.
A couple of pimples is just pimples - but a large number of pimples clustered together that refuse to heal is considered acne.When you hit puberty, hormones in the body produce more oil, or sebum, in the skin. When this sebum builds up it will erupt into a pimple on the skin. Bacteria on the skin will cause infection and inflame the area creating more severe acne.............VINEGAR EQUALIZES THE PROSITY OF SKIN MAKE SOLUTION OF TEN TABLESPOONS OF WATER 1 VINGEGAR(ANY KIND) SPRAY ON FACE IN MORNING.wITH SPRAY BOTTLE)SPRAY ON FACE AFTERNOONS PAY DRY AFTER SPRAYING BETTER THAN A DERMATOLOGIST SAVES LOTS OF $$$$$$$$$
Zit is a slang term for a pimple. If you lived in England you would call it a spot.
Different words for the same thing.
Same thing different titles
The amount of puss that comes out of it when squezed.
I have always thought that pimple sounded better than zit, but other than that, nothing.

How can you keep your skin zit-free?

which vitamins are good for it?excercise?please let me know.=]How can you keep your skin zit-free?
%26gt;%26gt; Wash your face twice a day (thrice at most) with gentle and unperfumed cleanser. Avoid using soaps as they contain harsh chemicals and ingredients that can damage your skin.

%26gt;%26gt; Avoid touching your face. Stop putting your hands by your face! I am often guilty of this resting my hand on the side of my head while reading. Also rubbing or bracing your chin is another common problem when thinking. Avoid rubbing, touching, or itching your skin with your hands. Your hands contain a lot of bacteria that can cause acne flare-ups. It is probably one of the most difficult things to avoid since much of the hand to face contact throughout the day we are unconscious of. Make it a habit to avoid hand contact and be conscious of it during the day to avoid bacteria.

%26gt;%26gt; Avoid the temptation to pick, prick and squeeze your acne. This will send the infection deeper into the skin and can cause severe scarring.

I also highly recommend you use effective herbal treatments like this one %26gt;%26gt;

It's very powerful.

How can you keep your skin zit-free?
Drink a lot of water, wash your face twice a day, eat healthy%26lt; no junk food, eat veggies and fruit.

  • Needs to get rid of a zit fast!?

    I'm going somewhere this weekend and i have this huge zit! Any help?Needs to get rid of a zit fast!?
    Ice cubes are good, as is dabbing with alcohol: the cooling takes away the redness and inflammation.

    Don't pick and it'll be well gone by the weekend.Needs to get rid of a zit fast!?
    when i wanted a zit away real quick or a pimple i always would put some tooth paste on it, leave it for about 20 min then wipe away, it worked for me
    Boil Drawing Salve.
    Rub Alcohol on it every few hours.
    A flame thrower. =)
    im a young teen. guy..... i had the same problem. it takes time to rid a zit. i used to use all these treatments that promise to clear ur skin but only erated my skin. i use proactive now...mainly the face mask but i really dont ever have a problem. i have read about care for the face and another way to get rid of them quickly is to not think babout it. u will stress your body about it making yourself notice or focus the attention to that one certain area which will make it much worse. also eating habits reflect ur appearence as i may. ummm... eating fruits with citruises as well as salad will help....meaning u must avoid ur greasy foods wich is fine every once in a while. i use blotting papers that elimanate any grease from the burger i just ate from my skin, and that will prevent any forming zits. im only thirteen and a guy but i know that this will hopefully work out in a way that did for me

    I have actually just tried a so called diet that i made up I ate strictly fruits and vegetables, fish and soy for protein. then i made myself to not look at my face for one week and act like i have no acne. one the week was done i was clear from acne.

    also use blotting sheets to abosorb oil within the skin and rid of any shiny appearance upon your face.

    with me any citrus fruit juices on my face have tripled the redness in the appeareance of the acne. I have found that a swim at the pool or laying out in the beach and our anywhere where there is an abundance of sun helps dry out skin, which helps acne.

    also it depends where you live. i live in the south and humidity there will make acne worse compared to the northern states. I went to Japan and acne is pretty bad because of the humidity.

    DRINK LOTS OF WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hope I have helped
    i know it sounds crazy but put toothpaste on it before you go to bed
    tooth paste...leave it on for a while.

    it makes redness and pussiness (IDK HOW TO SPELL THAT!) away...haha

    and um, wash your face a lot and if you have toner then you should put it on.

    and if your not going somewhere with water, then use makeup.

    or makeup that doesn't wash off if you are.

    (you know what i mean...)

    How do you heal a zit in your nose ?

    Apply something that will clear it up... Or leave the it alone...Pick at it and it will leave a scar for life lol :-}How do you heal a zit in your nose ?
    rubbing alcoholHow do you heal a zit in your nose ?
    rub a dab of toothpaste on it. will be gone by tomorrow.
    Shooot, I did mine the easy way. it shrunk in size in 4/5 hours. I took some hand soap. You know, The thing where you dont need water for it to work. I put some on my finger and rubbed it where the pimple was.
    There are a lot of products on the market that can help to shrink pimples. You can also use a dab of toothpaste on the pimple and it will work the same if not better.
    Your best option is probably to leave it alone. However, if you want to get rid of it faster, I would recommend using Neutrogena Acne Eliminating Gel(approximately $6 dollars). Dab some of that product on it about 3 times a day and it should go away by a few days.

    Remember not to scrub the area which can cause irritation; causing more pimples in the future.

    Try to drink as much water as you can to get rid of the inflamation and stay away from foods with high sodium. Not all foods will cause acne, but if you think they do, limit yourself to only occasional porportions. Well, good luck! =]

    Help me with this infected zit?

    I have the WORST zit and I'm about 100% sure that it's infected. It looks greenish and it's shiny and swollen and the whole area around it is red. I've done everything and nothing is working!! Not even my prescription acne treatment.

    I'm NOT using toothpaste!!!! I tried toothpaste and that's what made it get this bad!!!!!!Help me with this infected zit?
    Go to a doctor?Help me with this infected zit?
    Actually, I myself am a dermatologist and why should I help you? Send me some money and I'll make the zit disappear with a voodoo spell from New Orleans. You're welcome.
    i had that once. my doctor told me to put some athletes foot ointment cream on it, and i have to say, it cleared right up
    Hmm..I'll say go to the closest pharmacy near your house and let a professional take a look at it.

    It sounds pretty bad..just don't touch it AT ALL.
    lol i was about to say toothpaste...
    Athlete's foot cream

    or try SkinID, Proactiv, Clean%26amp;Clear, etc.
    If it is green you need to go to a doctor ASAP.
    Dude I would go straight to a doctor.
    Use Draw Out Salve.

    Is sounds more like a cyst.

    It is a black cream, put it on %26amp; cover with a band aid.
