Relatively big and black

I got this relatively big and dark acne... it is not a whitehead, and blood came out. What is it and how do I get rid of it? It doesn't have any "black" things on it either.

It sounds like perhaps a cyst. They can get big and sometimes just have blood or fluid in them. If blood came out, it sounds like you've been squeezing it. It should resolve on its own now, but they can sometimes take several weeks unfortunately. Ice sometimes helps to reduce swelling and redness. But otherwise, leave it alone. You can spot treat it with benzoyl peroxide and/or alpha hydroxy acid. This may help. Occasionally a dermatologist will need to inject those to help them go away.

Do cysts scar?
