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?

If you pop it yourself, it can get red and swollen and get worse. Just don't pop it again, lol.

Yeah if your gonna start it, you've already inured all the negatives of popping so you may as well finish - as removing everything inside makes the blemish go away very fast.

That spot is all healed now, the swelling went down. There was nothing left in there, I think the skin was just staying puffy for a little but now it's just a flattish pink spot that I can cover with makeup. I don't mind when it leaves a pink mark because I know those fade away. There's no indentation or anything. I wore polysporin on it for a few days, so that helped speed up healing.

Now I have another pimple on the other side of my face on my lower cheek. Grrr...this is why I pop them because the bump and pimple can't start to heal until whatever's in there comes out. But I'm trying to be good and not pop and just keep applying a warm compress to it.
