i mean vitamin e will help and all but your skin has to go through the healing process.no ways to speed that up....! i just picked one myself and i know its only gonna be back to 'normal' on sunday.

I just picked my face three days ago and made another painful wound. I have the honey with a band aid right now and leave it on all day and night (changing the bandaid once a day to a fresh one) and so far so good. It's healing nicely.
Try this, but the best thing you can do is leave it alone and take a lot of Vitamic C (vitamic c helps build collagen and connective tissue which is what our skin is made of)

If not, ice it continuously, and then put some anti inflammatory cream as was suggested by elsewhere put some antibiotic cream on it and bandaid
don't put retin A on it
you're skin will heal you will be ok

Just last Saturday morning, 6/1/10, after my daughter's soccer game, in the van mirror, I kept picking and squeezing at a little white head on the bridge of my nose. I don't know what came over me, but I just kept squeezing with my nails until I finally got the white out. Unfortunately, that night before bed, I noticed that I had totally f'd up the skin on my nose. I thought, Oh my god, what have you done now. it's bad enough you look like a monster, now even if the zits and crap ever go away, now you'll have this scar because you just couldn't let that little white bump alone. I happened to have somethng in my medicine cabinet that I'm sure not most people have.
I had a ionic nano silver spray (water and ionic silver), that I had previously bought online when I thought that my son had moluscum on his legs. Ionic silver is known for its healing properties, so I took my chances and applied it to my nose with a Q-tip and followed this, when dry, with
Aquafor ointment. I did this every morning, afternoon and night for a few days and I can't even
notice a scar on my nose. Keep in mind that I am very fair skinned, so for me to not see a scar is very phenomenal for me. I'm pretty sure that the nano silver is not helping with my overall disgustingly ugly skin problem, but at least it seemed to help fend off a scar from my incessant picking.

i actually just recently, 2 months ago or so, had this little whitehead on my neck, and i made it worse by trying to pop it too soon, and then made it worse by trying again later, and before i knew it, i had a mark that was three times bigger than it started, and it stung.
so i cut a small strip of a band aid, one just big enough to cover the mark, and i put some vitamin e on it and just put the band aid over it. about three or four days later, i took the band aid off and it was a pink mark, fading away, no longer hurting. and of course, i wasn't embarrassed about it at all. it SHOULD have had a band aid on it, it wasn't a pimple anymore, it was skin that i had picked off, and to stop myself, i had a band aid over it so i couldn't touch it, and i could let it heal.
