Beauty Question: What Do You Do When a Pimple Just Doesn't Go Away?

About two months ago, I noticed a small pimple in between my mouth and my chin. "No big deal," I thought to myself. I'd had these before -- I just dabbed on my Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for a couple nights and figured the problem would be solved.

Well, fast forward to today, and let me tell you ... it's not. This pimple will not go away, no matter what I try! I've gotten two facials, have tried masks and exfoliation, have religiously used my MB Drying Lotion ... nothing works. It will start to go away, will be on the verge of disappearing, then rears its ugly head with a VENGEANCE. We're talking red, inflamed, ANGRY.

I've made an appointment with a dermatologist for next week, since I'm getting pretty concerned. But my beauty question of the day is this. What do you do when a pimple just doesn't go away? Let me know your remedies and thoughts in the comments!


  1. I am a nurse, and while I (obviously) have not seen your blemish, I would say going to the derm is the best idea. You may have a staph infection, which could easily spread. So, hands off the blemish until you see the doc. Don't worry, if it is staph, antibiotics will clear it up.

  2. I agree with the nurse. This happened to my friend and it ended up being a boil.
