If I don't pop the acne, it stays for literally 6 weeks or more!
I am trying desperately not to pick or pop anything. It is so hard when I have abstained from it and the pimple stays there, red and gross, for 2,3,6,7 weeks! No kidding. I will religiously put acne spot treatment (emu aid, or Aztec mask, etc..) every night and no difference. I pray for strength and hope and healing:( does anyone else have this problem?

are you talking about a spot or cyst?
"red and gross" , it sounds like the products your using daily, could be causing prolonged irritation.
also I assume you're aware of post acne marks?
I am aware and have post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The spots I am referring to are both cystic and regular pimple1/2s. It is from my hormone issue not my products. I am on spironolactone and beyaz birth control for it and after 2 and a half months it finally seems like the acne is slowing.
I have learned that my skin will heal faster if I pop it rather than letting it sit on my face.My cysts andeven regular zits would stay FOREVER if I didnt squeeze them. Once I put a pin in it and got the junk out, its ugly for about three days and then everything Is good! I use the Burts bees nourishing skin oil for post acne hyperpigmentation. Works really well for me.
