  • Use some peroxide on it, and neosporin. You could also try taking some ibuprofen for the inflammation, and pain. If it's that bad then do call your Dr. Hope you feel better soon!

  • I'd keep applying alcohol to it. I have cystic acne and that's how mine get but they heal on their own.

  • It sounds like when you popped it, it forced it under your skin.

    The only thing you can do, mix apple cider vinegar with water and use as a toner and then if you have some tea tree oil, mix a couple drops with almond oil and blot. Then leave it alone to heal.

  • Ice will help the swelling. Good luck!! It may take a few days for it to go away.

  • Seriously? Go see a doctor for a PIMPLE?

  • I think I'd probably just keep putting something like neosporin on it, unless it gets MUCH bigger and you can tell it's actually infected.
