  • Don't pop it. Dry it out with a face wash or alcohol.

  • I've had the best luck with witch hazel toner (liquid found with the other acne meds) and creams that contain salycilic acid. benzoyl peroxide doesn't work for me.

  • Put salicylic acid on it. Clean it with a good face wash. If it has a head you can pop it and then add salicylic acid - but don't keep picking at it!! That is what keeps it from healing for so very long. Realize it's lifespan is typically 2 weeks without treatment and messing with it too much will only make it last longer.
