An inflamed pimple? It's usually a pimple that you've messed with - tried to pop - which comes along with pain, redness and swelling. They're under your skin, so you can't pop 'em. These are called nodules or cysts. The Regime - or topical/oral medications are available. I don't recommend oral meds. See your derm. The most successful medicine to rid these "cysts" is called Accutane. It comes with many many many horrific side-effects, so you need to research it before asking to be prescribed it.

Good luck!
