I squeezed a pimple on my cheek two days ago which I know is bad because it's always worse when they're in the cheek area. It was red and felt hard but I only saw an obvious open looking pore. When I put the compress on, I saw white stuff come near the surface, so I squeezed a few times because even when I thought it was done, there was more. I squeezed until nothing else came out. Ever since then, I kept polysporin on and the surface of the pimple is more healed now but it's still a bright red little bump. The bump just looks puffy and swollen. It doesn't feel hard-ish like anything's in there. Does it just take longer sometimes for the inflammation to go away? I know with my cheek, even when I get pimples professionally extracted, they still stay swollen for a bit. The only thing I'm worried about is that I squeezed it myself so I don't know if it's just normal swelling or it's still a pimple. Does it take swelling awhile to go away sometimes?
