Basically last week I got a horrible spot come up just under my eye, like the worst place it could be, but it's turned into one of them horrible acne cysts, n it's so red and big it's pretty much impossible to cover! I'm too embarrassed to go to college because of it! What is the best thing I could use or do to make it heal like within the next couple of days, or even just make it go down a little or get rid of the redness so it's easier to cover and less noticable. I've heard cortisone injections are the best but sadly they don't do them where I live :( I've tried the hot compress trick, hydrocortisone cream and calamine lotion, none of it is working very well.
Talking from experience what is the best product or home remedy to get rid of this horrible thing? Even advice on how to cover it up so it's barely noticeable would be a great help, I've got really good concealer but even that isn't working :/
I don't have really bad acne, I'd say I'm mild to moderate, but it really affects my self esteem, I've been on erythomycin for a while, but it doesn't seem to be working anymore :(
