Help might do something stupid

Recommended Posts

I had this pustule on my right cheek for about 2 months now and I keep thinking about breaking it with a needle.(syringe) I can't tell if the head is still there or not as the whole thing is a dark black/purple/brown color. The skin area right above has also turned a brownish color similar to when you have an after mark from a pimple but this area could only have this happen if the pustle is somehow causing it as the skin was fine prior. Really now, I did my best not to do anything to the area in hopes that it wouldn't leave a scar afterwards but I'm kinda getting worried that it will get worse or it's actually going to leave an even deeper scar. Help! I really need some advice on what to do as I'm on my wits end here.

Try putting some aloe vera gel on it and a plaster over top when you're at home maybe? At least you didn't touch it or do anything to it! It probably won't leave a scar.

I've had 'em like that before (got one right now, in fact). They take forever to go away, but they do, eventually. I've been spot-treating mine w/a clay mask, but it doesn't do much. It would probably go away faster if you lanced it, but would most likely leave a scar. Those kind are annoying!
