(Yes I know, never pop cystic acne, I've learned my lesson)
This morning I couldn't take it anymore and popped a cystic acne on my nose, now it's all red and somewhat flaky (not raised). What can I do to make this go away? I've heard everything from Neosporin to BP but decided to make my own post because I'd really like to get an answer for my own situation. I know this pales in comparison to some of the other horror stories I've seen on these boards, but any help is appreciated -- I'm going back to school in two days and I'm very OCD about how I look and how people see me in public, I can't even make eye contact with people because I don't want them looking at my face. I don't want to go to a derm. Thanks so much.
I could only get a good picture by taking a screenshot and cropping another photo (I'm kind of new at this whole thing), if they are poor photos please tell me and I will try to take some better ones.
