if you can get some topical antibiotics... or try using diluted vinegar as toner.... vinegar kills bacsteria... and dont ever touch it with your fingers ever again.

I thought Neosporin aids in healing wounds and preventing infection. I had a popped pimple like this a few weeks ago...used Neosporin and it cleared it right up...no scarring.

vinegar is incredibly acidic.. it has a pH rating of like 2 or 3. I would not put that on my face.

Even if your pimple is infected, putting antibiotic ointment on it will help it to heal. Put polysporin or neosporin on it.
