After I leave a pimple to form a whitehead, I follow the correct steps to remove the pus.
Afterwards, clear fluid continues to ooze out for a long time.
Should I use hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol / surgical spirit to instantly dry up the area?

I have always just got tissue paper and held it there over the wound for at least 10min. Usually it will dry to the tissue and the tissue will become stuck to the wound. After i carefully remove it, i will apply another tissue with slight pressure another 10min or so because after you break of the first one, it will usually for me start to ooze once again slightly from where i broke the tissue off. So by the 2nd go around it will not stick and im usually good to go.
Gah all that ooze is just fn annoying thou isnt it? Then again acne in itself of course is a fn nightmare, you think our skin would have better ways in dealing with bacteria then flaming up into a big red puss ball for all to see.

Now, I just use a lancet thing or whatever that diabetics use and I just pierce a hole into the white pus(white head) I see and then I let it come out or I just slightly squeeze it out by applying little pressure around it and it flows out. 2 q-tips might be better doing that, but I just use my fingers since I'd be showering anyways.
Then I shower and come out of shower without noticing anything. Like that clear redish fluid coming, I always called it plasma. haha
I don't notice that at all.
Or when I don't take a shower.
I do like I say and just not take a shower, and I don't really notice it either. But not like it matters. That stuff is suppose to help heal anyways. It's like blood. So you sleep, can clear it off the next day when you take a shower.

I've discovered this recently and it seems to work well.
After squeezing out the pus, 1st take some tissue and dab off some residue. Then take a slab of St Ives Green Tea Cleanser put it directly on the pimple (like you would ben. peroxide) and leave it on for a five minutes - ten minutes or so, it should dry and then wash it off if (you are in the shower (this works the best). You should then be left with a nice dry area.
