There are no guarantees, but something that often helps to get rid of zits (esp. the ouchy kind!) is to take a washcloth, get it wet with the hottest water you can stand, and use it as a compress on your zit for several minutes. Repeat a few times. Often it'll help kill the bacteria inside the zit that are causing the trouble, and let your body help 'bat cleanup' with clearing out the infection and reducing the swelling.

Try steaming, its great. It may not totally get rid of the zit, but its great to relieve pressure.
