How do you get rid or red marks after popping a pimple?

3 posts in this topic

hi, Im 13 years old and I get about 1 new pimple every other day. But when I pop it like it says on this site, I have a red mark that won't go away! I use two kinds of acne meds a day. Both 10% benzoil peroxide. Equate and Clearasil. I am going to get neutrogena on the spot. But until then please help me!!!

don't pop them! DONT POP THEM DONT POP THEM DONT POP THEM DONT POP THEM. biggest regret i have. they leave scars when you pop them, like holes in your face, which is WORSE than red marks. and they also leave redder marks than if you let the thing go away by itself. and then the red marks fade, slowly, but they do. try using aloe vera overnight, and try putting something with sulfur, that's helped me a lotttt. either a sulfur face wash (but i got that by prescription) or a sulfur topical thing like the proactive daily face mask thing. i put some of that on the pimple while it's still active and it makes it heal faster, dry faster, fall off faster, and fade away faster. AGAIN, DON'T POP THEM PLEASEEE!

Its strange how peoples pimples differ from one another. I find popping one of the most important parts of sdestroying a pimple, but then I only scar slightly with big spots and its not really noticable. Once I pop, I smother the spot in Benzol peroxide cream or 'Quinoderm' as its known in the U.K and that dries it out and takes any inflammation away.

Try a benzol peroxide cream.

The red marks can take up to a year to go away. After you pop the pimple put neosporin on it and it will not leave a red mark or scar

neosprin? is that some kind of anti septic cream like savlon here in the UK?

also for uk people which is better "best" quinoderm or panoxly?


My Regimen.. accutane

If anyone cares to read this and I manage to stop 1 person to avoid going on Accutane, then its served its purpose.

PM me if you'd like to chat. ACNE is ENTIRELY curable through natural ways. Please don't feel pushed or pressured or helpless that you think you must resort to this drug.

I'm not a crazy natural person (nut job lol) just a 27 year old guy who has been through it all and can offer genuinely good advice. You can see by my profile how long i've been around this forum.
