Don't SQUEEZE. Cover your pressing fingers with tissue so you don't slip, then gently PRESS down around the edges (NOT ON) the lesion. If you must evacuate it, that is.

Afterwards, wash your hands and face with warm soapy water (using your regular cleanser is fine) and then apply a dab of antibiotic ointment or cream to the area.

I agree....don't squeeze

By squeezing the pimple you are removing a portion of the bacteria/pus, but also pushing a portion of it further down into your skin.

Look into purchasing an extraction "tool" if you don't have one for similar situations in the future.

Yeah, use a tool like other said.

Also, if a zit pops on its own, that's good because it means it matured by itself to come out and you don't have to pick n' aqueeze it, reducing the possibility of scarring.
