i got a normal pimple and it just went away normally.. but now there's a red bumpand i think pus is trapped in it.. how can i get rid of this? there's no head and its PAINLESS. I put bp on it to make it come to a head..
It looks like a bumpy dark spot.. its been there for like one week.. SHOULD I LEAVE IT ALONE OR TREAT
I'm using 2.5% bp on my face. I started it at the beginning of this month and now i'm getting tiny bumps on my face!! i know its because of bp. I didn't over use it.
Should i continue this? or stop using this? i have another gel which has 0.5% bp in it. I have been using it for years. It didn't cause any irritation. My doctor prescribed me the bp gel. I think its harsh on my skin. So is it safe to go back to the previous gel?
About me: I'm an Asian. I have mild acne and i have a combination skin and i'm 20.
I got a huge underground pimple on my left cheek. It didn't pop out, but a scab formed on it. The scab fell off so easily after 5 or 6 days after i had a bath. Then the skin of that area was pink color. I didn't pick the scab. Later the pimple came to a head (two or three heads were there). I did not pop it. i'm pretty sure about it!! It went back to normal after 3-5 days.
Then i went to the dermatologist and he told me to use cetaphil gentle cleanser and benzoyl peroxide 2.5% cream. So I have been using it since 1st week of April. I use the cleanser in the morning and night. In the morning after i cleanse, i put bp cream on that area and wait for 2 hours (doctor told me to do so) and wash it off.
I can see a lot of improvement of my acne. Still the red spots are there. But where i got the huge pimple is still red!!! Why is that?? is it still healing?? The redness doesn't go away. That place is somewhat like a very very shallow scar. I can see the indented part only from the side. It cannot be seen when i look straight in the mirror. So will this go away with time?? its just a mild one. like on the top layer of the skin. Why there's a scar even though i didn't pop it?? i'm so worried.
BTW i apply vitamin E oil on it.
Are there any home remedies?? Here are some latest pics of my face. When i smile, scar is completely gone.Photo-0037.jpg89.39K86 downloads
