I had a horrible and i mean horrible Whitehead pimple about 4 days ago... And it was so painful when i played i had to stop for the whole day. This continued in jazz band the following day when we had to do individual performances, my band director did in fact give me the option to take it next class, but i told him no that i would be fine. By the time my performance came around the pain had lessened to where i can play a G above the staff without to much pain. But any note after that such as a G# i would begin to hurt again. I kept my range down for that whole day and by the time the next day came around it stopped hurting and before i knew it i obtained my Double G Range back just yesterday actually. But i want to know if there is a easy way to help the pain or lessen it if you have a performance coming up? Like a quick healing process? I popped it and i guess it helped... But it took quite a bit of time. I'm just lucky i didn't have a Marching band Performance that day. So you're valuable input will help me greatly guys! Thank you!
