Annoying Pustule....refilled Twice....scab Now...blackhead Still Inside? Help?!blackhead pustule scab picked
Posted 09 February 2012 - 05:09 AM
Anyways I poped it to soon and some of the pus came out but I was gentle with it so I didn't get all of it....I tried to not "push" on the pimple...just wipe the pus away....
anyways I had washed my face after and put benzamycin on it, but I didn't "disinfect" it with anything.
So it refilled afew hours later, and I didn't pop it all yesterday, then last night I washed my face and it was leaking a little...so I accidently broke it....so I said screw it and grabbed one of those extractor tools with the loop and pressed around it, and some pus and blood and clear stuff came out...
it left a gross little bloody hole and was pretty inflammed...so I put hydrogen peroxide and later alcohol on it, then left it for an hour or so, then I put benzamycin on top for the night.
Now, this morning its a tiny little scab but I can still feel it "hurts" a little occasionally, and I don't know if it's INFECTED or if the blackhead is still inside...
Should I assume if it didn't "regrow" last night again into a pustule that I got everything out of the pimple? and why does it still hurt a tiny bit...because of the scab?
I hope it isn't infected...I am very upset because I used to get cysts on my right cheekbone and had very dark hyperpigmentation and it faded very nicely over the last year and now I have this ugly mark on my face from this stupid thing.
advice? No idea what to do, if the blackheads still in there wont it just keep growing back?

it's hard to know if the blackhead is still in there but i certainly don't think you should go digging for it. that will only make matters worse. i suggest consistent alteration of BP spot treating and Neosporin (or any antibacterial salve). I had one last week and i used BP during the day and Neosporin at night & it improved greatly.
hope it heals up quickly!

You won't know if the blackhead is out or not unless it heals completely. If it doesn't it should come out on it's own eventually. I would use Neosporin or Polysporin and leave it alone so it could heal.
