  • I have one growth above my lip that has grown in length, but has now stopped growing. Not painful. However, it is unsitely. Suspect it is a pimple. How can I get rid of it?

  • My skin is pretty much normal however I have 1 little pimple that is upraised next to my right eye (not too close). I squeeze the contents out but seems to literally re-fill almost immediately. Why does it keep doing this. I don’t have acne and never really did. This continues to be there no matter what it has been there for a while, probably a few years. It is not anything other than a pimple and I don’t know what to do to get rid of it. Would Ichthammol remove it perhaps?

  • I have tried many ways of curing and getting rid of my pimples but to no avail. It goes a while and comes back and i don’t know what to do, so what can i apply or do to cure it for life?

  • I think most of the types of pimples mentioned above… I used to have on my face and there was a time when I used to think that there won’t be any cure for my face but luckily on a party, a girl recommended me to use dermalmd blemish serum and I used it too initially the pus ones vanished very quickly but after each day slowly all of them vanished……;)
