    sounds nasty.

    don't touch it - by doing so, you're irritating it and giving it more germs.

    am i correct in assuming it's a pimple? clean your face but don't overdry it. If it really is growing by the hour and it's a cold sore, I'd think about seeing a doctor. But seriously, mac forums is the worst place to get advice for this.

    Not a good idea to post that on here... too personal...

    Toothpaste should do the job, leave it on overnight, wash it off in the morning, it won't get rid of it, but it will make it go down a little.

    *LOL* Some people might be eating :D

    But the toothpaste appears to be having some effect, the little beggar is shrinking and the pain has reduced, and no it's not Herpes (coldsore) ;)
    but thats a one point for colgate and no points for t-tree oil :eek:

    The spot is shrinking
