I have very tender pimple forming on my cheek. It hurts when I apply pressure to it. I dont think its a whitehead, maybe a pustule or papule. Any ideas for treatment????

Ice can help reduced redness and inflamation, and may help reduce the size of the developing pimple. You can put the ice in a plastic baggie if you don't want to put it directly on your skin. Ice the spot for a few minutes 2-3 times a day, and maybe spot treat it overnight with BP or sulfur.

Oh, and taking an anti-inflamatory pain killer can help as well (Aleve works well for me)
