If you catch a pimple when it is just starting to form, icing can help kill the bacteria (and sometimes the pimple will actually go away - but you really have to have caught it pretty early). Ice can also help reducing the swelling of an already formed pimple. A warm compress may bring a pimple to a head faster - not sure if it does anything for inflammation or redness though.
