Several solutions included tea tree oil, isopropyl alcohol with a cotton swab, the obvious acne medications, using a hot tea bag or a hot compress... and something called Prid Drawing Salve.
When I first looked this stuff up, I was a little taken aback by it. The company started making this stuff in 1968 and hadn't ever updated their packaging. The word "homeopathic" almost scared me off because I was never really a believer in that kind of medicine (I'd even tried homeopathic hCG once because it was oh-so-much-cheaper, but it didn't work.) Apparently, according to all the reviews I read, this stuff really "draws out" things like pus or infections, and also raises out splinters or thorns. It helps pull out the stuff injected by mosquito (or other bugs) that make you itch, or the poison in a bee sting. It can be used on boils and blisters and other swollen, inflamed places on the skin. It all sounds very "miracle-istic" for a "homeopathic remedy".
Fair warning: It smells bad. It's sticky, doesn't wash off very easily, and very medicinal smelling, but I actually don't mind it so much. I can't wait to use it on something else, now. Some people say it helps heal scratches faster, too. I wish I would have discovered this stuff sooner!
