I would also sit with my face towards a heat lamp...it worked. I also took Accutane, it worked after everything else failed. I don't have scars or anything now.

Just my 2 cents.

Jan 25, '08 by austin215Quote from STInurse2007I'm glad to know there are people just like me! I'm an obssessive zit popper. 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
