I get this pimple in the same spot on my arm all the time, I pop it and it comes back, the little fucker.

How do you get rid of it, besides cutting off the arm.
It is the darnest little thing.

Maybe its smallpox? lol

You arent getting all of the core when you pop it. Go to your local pharmacy, and ask for Ichthammol ointment. If he doesn't know what it is, tell him its a black salve that smells like diesel. If still doesnt know, slap him and get a new pharmacist.

Better hygeine? If it's around a hair folicle, it could be because it's irritated. I got foliculitis from using a soap my skin didn't like and I had pimples on every hair folicle on my forearm for a week. It really, really sucked.

I consider myself clean, maybe its a hair thing. I have pretty sensitive skin and hairy to boot lol.
Link Posted: 10/12/2004 10:03:20 PM EST
Sounds like it's an irritation issue then. Use a milder soap and make sure you don't let sweat stay on that area long enough to irritate it. Or, live with the pimple.

I'm not an MD, but after all the medical problems I've been privy to with myself, my wife, and my kids, I know a lot more about dermatology than I should.

Is that what that stuff is? My dad used to have some old army first aid kits he kept, they had a tube of some awful smelling black stuff that would heal just about anything a young dumb kid could do to himself.

Quit your bitching. If I wanted to hear about zits I'd go to DU. When you ask for medical advice on Arfcom it's supposed to be about serious, scary shit that you're treating at home.

Something like, "I bleed a quart of blood out my asshole everyday, I'm pale and down to 113 pounds, should I go see a doctor?"

Or, "I cut my foot off in a chainsaw accident, how can I treat it at home to save the $15 emergency room co-pay?"

That's the kind of medical shit we want here, not your zit.

And one more thing: you're not fooling anybody, we know it's on your ass, not your arm.
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 1:46:59 AM EST
Worthless without pics.

With a pic we could determine the TYPE of zit and suggest the proper rememdy.

NOTE: I am not a doctor, but I stayed at a Holiday Inn last night.

5tRs1Ga might be right. IF so....

If there's a hair you can see (might look like shaving stubble), grip it firmly with tweezers.

Then pull steadily (don't yank, or it'll break off). It WILL hurt. You'll be surprised how long the hair is.

Treat as normal - keep it clean, squeeze gently to eject the fun gunk inside, etc. etc.

Sounds like cancer to me.A BIG tumer that has sent a malignant tentacle to the surface(the pimple).

Pop it and make sure you get the little sack out. The one that contains the puss. Even if you get all the puss out, if you leave the sack, the zit will reform. Then use a Q-tip on the hole with some Hydrogen Peroxide. Let that stuff work it's way in and eat the crap in the pore or what ever. Oh ya, it never hurts to use soap once in a while either.

Is it a "pimple", a small staph infection with a wet, pussy center, or is it a cebaceous cyst, filled with an odiferous, cheesy substance...often with a hard, sometimes black surface top? Orrrrr.....is it a hard ball type structure under the skin that requires tools to dig out?

Nasty...I know... but they ARE different creatures.

The first is like acne and is a true pimple. Think a micro-boil. These are caused by a strain of staphloccocus. They usually pop fairly easily and don't return.

The second one is a cyst with an opening to the top layer of your derma. This one is easily squeezed out, often leaving a noticeable hole that eventually fills right back up again. This one is tough to eradicate.

The last one is an encapsulated cyst that must be removed with needles, razor blades or scalpel like knives. You must get the sac out or this one will recur as well.

As has been already stated...try to get rid of it, then treat with a disinfectant...like H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide.) Should clear up OK if you are successful in removing the source.

Good luck!

No 2-3 shower a day is not normal. Unless your a prostitute. In which case it's not a pimple.
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 1:32:33 PM EST
May not be your run of the mill pimple. Seems like your immune system is having problems dealing with the "bug". Over the last few years we have seen a rapid growth in antibiotic resistant microorganisms. I would have your M.D. check it out. This sounds suspiciously like methicillin resistant staphlococcus aureous (sp). I have seen quite a few of these infections in all kinds of people that you wouldn't expect. The usual way I have seen it manifest itself is a "pimple" or "boil" that just won't go away even after draining and application of antibiotic ointment. If that is what it is, IV Vancomycin is generally the treatment. Left untreated may result in a much more severe infection that is very difficult to control. Don't want to scare you but that is a possibility.
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 1:55:49 PM EST
One shower per day. That's what normal clean people need. Any more than that can dry out the skin excessively, or cause other issues.
