I have developed a large knot-like red (pimple?) on my chin Smiley Surprised  What am I?  16?  It's tender to the touch, hard and no whitehead.  I feels like the size of an egg lol but it's not.  I have no idea what to do with it...how to treat it.  I also  have a pimple on my right temple.  No head but it looks like it will develop into one.  It's not like the one on my chin.  I've not changed anything too recently.  A week or so ago I ran out of Naturium Retinol and started using the same thing in her newer cream version.  If it was a product I was using on my entire face, wouldn't I have multiple breakouts?

@monicakm   It may be a result of all the stress you've been under lately. For gosh sake, don't pick at it or press it. It could scar. If it really begins to bother you, a derm can inject it with cortizone to help it go away.

I would call your dermatologist and have it injected. It will reduce the swelling fairly quickly.

If it were me, I would wash my face twice a day with a gentle cleanser or soap and not put anything else on my face for several days. For me, I'd assume I was clogging my pores with a product(s) because using too much moisturizer has given me mild breakouts within the T-zone in the past.

@monicakm 

What about that GTE? Are you still using it?

I noticed a small red bump, not a pimple, but just a slightly raised, pink spot on my upper cheek yesterday morning. The only thing different in my routine is the GTE.

 

I think there was another poster, can't remember who,  said she had a breakout from the GTE also.

Skin Doctor or Urgent Care.

I’d try a hot compress.

People seriously doctor their zits?

@monicakm   I am no expert but I would treat with hot compresses to see if it comes to a head.  If not, give a call to your doctor.  Don't you love it, we still get pimples at our age.  I have lucky for quite a few years now with no breakouts.

I think I would try putting something cold on it, not heat. And then put some neosporine or triple antibiotic on it. I think heat would make it "hotter". Stress is a nasty bit@h---that's prob alot of the problem.

Why the urgency?  Can't she just "wait it out" and see what happens?  We all get occasional blemishes that come and go on their own (don't we???)
