I alway get one terrible bump on my face every month before my period. I had tried everything. Whatever I used before, would make it worse and it would bleed and take forever to heal and sometimes leave a scar.

Well, I got a bump where my nose starts and I thought I looked like a monster. I heard read somewhere about TEA TREE OIL. You can get it at GNC stores or healthfood stores. I thought I would try it. I got some, and wet a tissue with water (you don't want to put it on full strength) and put some TEA TREE OIL on it and dabbed on my terrible cystic looking pimple twice a day. It went down flat and didn't turn into a horrible looking bump that never seemed to heal and no scarring. I cant stop the pimples from coming, but when I see the starting of one, twice a day, dab the TEA TREE OIL on a very moist tissue. It really seems to help heal the bump much better and faster without the scarring . It is a powerful antiseptic. If you google it, you can read more about it. If anyone tries it, let me know if it worked for you. I hope it does. :)
