blemish going on 3 monhs

SO happy to have discovered this site... Anyway, about three months ago I got a blemish, lesion..(??) on my chin. Assuming it was on my chin, and I have a bunch of tiny white comodones on my chin always, anyway, I didn't think too much of it.. I get a zit every now and then, still.. (at 35). I started doing what I normally do when I get a zit.. use stridex pads, resort to my past prescribed medications -Clindamycin Phosphate and Tretinoin Cream.. 2, 3, 4 weeks later.. no improvement. I scheduled a Dermatologist Apt. (but of course that took 4 weeks to get in) and when I did, the dang Dr. tells me. "It's in the acne family.. just keep using what you are and I'll also give you a prescription for an oral medication." (Doxycycl) WELL.. Its been a month now since that appointment and 3 medications and 3 months later, I still am dealing with this thing. I told the Dermatologist, I didnt think this was acne! There is no creamy white puss, it's just like- raised skin that keeps scabbing over, about the size of an earing back. I squeeze and nothing somes out.. I'm beyond frustrated and getting a second opinion at the end of this month (March 2013) wth another doc.. but if this appointment is anything like my last one, its just going to be another waste of money with no improvement. Has anyone experieinced anything similar to this -whatever it is- blemish? lesion? Ive read everyone talking about the incredible affects of Calomine, so I went out and bought some last night and just put my 3rd application on, as I type this. Too early to tell if it will work, but its worth a try. I'll keep you all posted,but I dont think my issue is just healing of it being picked at, I think its something I need to treat and haven't been given the correct treatment. Any input is much appreciated! Thanks~!! : )

Ok guys I have these too, no I don't know what they are but I have found a way to treat them. Mine used to last for up to a year and would get very big, about the size of a quarter. I still get them but with this treatment the last a few weeks and don’t get big. essential oils!! I use several and I don’t know which helps for sure but you can experiment. I use either Argan or Jojoba for a carrier oil and these are the essential oils I use.. DO SOME RESEARCH!! Vetiver, frankincense, patchouli, Neroli, Petitgrain, Myrrh. I have added others too that do great things. You can get oils from many places, I get my from The Organic Witch, at end of post I will post contact info for them. I called the lady that owns it and spoke with her and sent her the site she is reading it. She said she will come up with a blend of the oils ( so you don’t have to buy all the individual ones) when you contact her tell her you heard about this from Dream so she knows what you are dealing with. Just so you know I am not getting any money or anything else from her for posting her info, I am just trying to help other that have what I have. PLEASE try the oils, they don’t cost much and they do help. Good luck all. The Organic Witch PO Box 218 Dunnville, KY 42528 Toll Free: 1-888-WITCH-11 (948-2411)
