Okay, does anybody else ever get a zit INSIDE their nostril? And it hurts like a sonofabitch? But you can't pop it, obviously, so you just spend all evening digging around in there with your pinky finger trying to get rid of it.

I HATE that.

That is all...back to your regularly scheduled debating.

You've gotta be shitting me!? I totally have a nose zit in my left nostril as we speak (or type, but whatever). It sucks so bad. It makes my eyes tear up if I even think about going near it. Damn it.

I also have braces (COMING OFF IN 3 WEEKS!!!) and i get those damn canker sores too! OMFG they hurt sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad! I found a mouth wash called Peroxil that works sooo great. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Oh and one more thing. A tip to prevent the armpit ingrowns. Shave in the same direction your hair grows. I have sensitive skin and used to ALWAYS get those shave bumps and ingrowns under my arms. I don't know why, but about 10 years ago I was about to shave my pits and for some reason decided to shave UP instead of down and haven't had a bump since. You may have to make a few extra passes but it's totally worth it. My razors last longer too, since they aren't fighting the hair. I'd do it on my legs too but I have 47 miles of legs and not enough time to make all those extra passes. Hell, I'm lucky if I remember to shave my knee caps half the time lol

I can't believe I just read this whole thread! Yuk!
Now, I'll add my post. ;) I too hate pimples in the nose (I've only had them on the inside edge, thankfully by the sounds of it!) and I hate pimples in your ear, OUCH!

You can get the Peroxil at any drug store. It REALLY does the trick. It has been my savior for the past 3 1/2 years with these freaking braces! So ready to get these damn things off.... but then a retainer for 2 years... blah.

Another thing to look at is your toothpaste. A lot of people have a sensitivity or allergy to Sodium Lauryl (or Laureth) Sulfate. It's in just about every type of toothpaste out there and it's been known to cause canker sours and ulcers in those who are sensitive to it (like me). I used to get ulcers and canker sours CONSTANTLY. I switched toothpaste and it stopped. :)

I can say I have never gotten one in my nose, but have one in my ear right now! UGH! It hurts so bad to touch it that it almost feels good!

My dad once had a zit on the back of his neck so big we all thought it was a tumor until it popped. I'm not kidding, it was the size of baseball. When it finally did pop it smelled...god that was gross.

OMG Krista, I have a zit inside my left nostril as I type, been there since last night. Frikkin annoying as hell. Hurts too and feels like it's the size of a marble but in reality it's probably tiny.
Someday someone will have a cream or a patch or something for this affliction.
:)good luck

Oh I hate those ones that you can't get! And here's a big TMI story for you - he once had a zit on his nut sack! LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!

[deleted account]

I was taught that gargling with salt/baking soda water helps canker sores. I used to get them a lot when I was a kid and this helped.

This is amusing. My other extreme dislike is canker sores in my mouth. i've been getting a lot of them recently because i'm constatly getting hit in the mouth, one daughter is in the squirm stage and the other is in the bucking stage, so everytime I get hit in the mouth, it cuts against my teeth, and a day or two later i'll get a sore that lasts 7-10 days which makes salty things unbearable to eat, anything general uncomfortable and by the time it finally goes away I usually get another!

Oh, those tiny zits right at the edge of your lipline -- yeah, those hurt like hell, don't they?

If I get an ingrown at my bikini line, I keep a stash of men's boxer briefs for just that occasion. They're fugly, but at least I don't have that awful elastic pinching at me .

Try a little toothpaste on hard to get zits, it dries them out really quickly, although possibly not inside your nose, luckily an experience I have never had.

[deleted account]

I don't think I've ever had one inside my nose, but I get them on the rims of my nostrils from time to time. Those tiny ones like the lip ones that make your eyes cry when you try to get them. I'm gonna go scrub my face and go to bed.

Oh, and a cure for the ones that happen at the panty line? Don't wear undies :P I haven't had one of those in years. Since we're sharing TMI, I only wear undies 4 days a month. Freeeeeedommmmmm!!!!!

Yep, Kate. It fuckin' hurts........and because it is right where the panties are, it doesn't heal quickly either. The occasions where I've had one, I just go without panties :)
