Gosh, what a pain! I went through all of that too when I was younger....the Duofilm, Compound W and the freezing. Not too fun. I think if you keep using the castor oil and other ingredients it will eventually go away. Mine isn't completely gone yet, but it is SO much better. I am still treating it, altho I've been lazy the last couple nights and haven't put any on. Stick with it and let us know how it goes.
