It's been a struggle to see my doctor these past couple of weeks as my primary gp has been booked completely, so I'm just waiting until a free spot opens up before I can see her. I say this because I just know someone will tell me to see my doctor to get my anxiety taken care of.
I sometimes use alcohol wipes on pimples, just to clean them and prevent any further infection. I had this red spot on my chin that wasn't painful, and it seemed to have a very tiny whitehead. When I used the alcohol wipe on this one I guess I pressed a little too hard because It looked like I tore off some of the dead skin around the pimple. This is pretty normal for pimples I get on my chin... they get a whitehead, then flake a little, then go. This was around 7:00 last night. There was no blood or anything, but the spot did seem a little open... you could barely see that, though.
So last night around 8:30 I got in the shower like usual and washed out the spot with water and shampoo. Okay, everything's fine.
I didn't end up getting to sleep until 4am. It's now 7am. I woke up about an hour ago (I have awful insomnia...) and used the washroom. I looked in the mirror and noticed the spot had formed another whitehead. Once I'd been up for a little while I noticed the pimple started feeling sore, like if it was filled with any more pus it would pop on it's own... the whitehead isn't that big now, but it looks like a pocket of pus.
I tried relieving the soreness by gently squeezing it. It weeped a little, I didn't really notice any blood. I didn't *pop* it... just tried squeezing it a little. I put polysporin on it and now twenty minutes later it doesn't feel as sore.
I really need your help. I need to be told why this won't happen to me...

My last thread was *completely ignored*.... I just don't have anyone else to go to on this. I'm so worried.
