I saw something interesting a couple weeks ago. My hubby had an ingrown hair on his cheek, this sucker was just growing right under the skin like a half inch long, you could see it through the skin.

Just my 2 cents.

I found this sites months ago, in my search for nursing school and information. I kept meaning to get around and join. Then I read this whole thread, and here I am!I have finally found people like me. I know I should not squeeze them but I can't stop, especially if I am tired or bored.

My bfs back has a TONS of black heads (but no zits - wierd huh?) Anyway, he thinks I'm insane because I can't resist. If I don't I just keep thinking about doing it. And he knows, cuz a few minutes later, he'll tell me go ahead...Theres nothing like all the crap that comes out of it. (I can't believe I just admitted this):innerconf
I think I'm going to buy one of those tweezer like popper thinks
