Bump, I have been using Salicylic acid and bezoyl peroxide, but they have not worked. Also put honey on didnt work. What else can i do?

Have you tried applying ice to it? Put an ice cube in a ziplock baggie (or any plastic bag will do), hold the ice against the swollen area for a few minutes at a time. You will more than likely get a bad case of 'brain freeze'. Apply ice on and off about 10 times, for a minute or two at a time, or as long as you can handle it.

If it's a head, pop it.. it heals faster. make sure to wash it after + apply ice and aloe vera

do not pop,not only chances of scar will increase but the infection might spread.
its one bad habit.
u are applying bp.
do that twice a day as usual and keep using ur salicylic wash(or whatever form it is).
the head means that the pus inside will come out.
relax and give it some time.
2 days is nothing.
sometimes big pustules take more than 8-10 days to show any improvement bu i hope thats not the case with u.
dont touch it.

What I would suggest for "effectively" popping pimples in a manner that won't scar is to use thin lancets (what diabetics use to prick themselves) I have 26 gauge that I've used to remove milia as well as pop a pimple or two. The hole it leaves is tiny but will effectively allow you to drain the pimple. Make sure you wipe your skin down with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide after. Also, be gentle when you squeeze stuff out. Aggressive squeezing is what traumatizes the skin.

whatever you do, DO NOT pop it or touch it.
I had this kind of pimple between my eyes before but you gotta bear it. Once I popped mine, it took a long period of time for the scar to go away.
