zit-zapper

Tiny needle like gadget to inject and destroy deep down zits.

I hate those "zits" that never come to surface...the ones that just stay deep down within the skin and drive you crazy...you can't medicate them and squeezing just makes them turn into a huge red welted area the size af Mount Figi.. I think someone could make a "zit-zapper"--a tiny needle like gadget to stick (painlessly) into the deep seated core to either relieve the pressure, or to apply medicine to stop the infection...to clear it up...

       I think he means Mt. Fugu, a seamount where Japanese fishermen harvest poisonous blowfish.

       No, he means Mount Fogou, a subterranean mountain in Cornwall.

       Discovered this in junior high; clip top of zit with finger nail clippers, squeeze contents out, tip a bottle of aftershave to crater until it stings, and then wad up a tiny bit of toilet paper, apply and leave, to suck out whatever is left in there. Mount fiji should be gone the next day.   

       Thank you 2 fries, Now I think I'm gonna run to bathroom and .... braaaflugh ... too late. Damn chunks in keyboard...   

       On a side note, snickle is talking about the ones that never come to a head.

       Bloke I was at school with used to cultivate his with cooking oil and when they'd all gotten good and snowcapped, he'd shave the lot off. Savlon aftershave followed. Show your adolescence who's boss.

       If they don't come to a head, you just gotta dig deeper.   

       I'm with bliss on this one.

       In Canada all you have to do is stick your head out the window in February.

       // couch, clutch ... // for a second there, bliss, I thought you said 'crotch.' Bad memor... er... I mean mental pictures.

       How do you know its a zit if it never comes to the surface? Maybe it's a hairy little spider embryo. Growing. And growing...
