I recently had a pimple near my hairline that was not too big but very tender. The head was pretty small--only a small circle of pus at the center. I was just going to let it heal by itself but while I was in the shower the skin broke near the pus-filled area (I'm guessing it was from rinsing my hair or something..) and the small bit of pus started draining out. I put a Nexcare 3M acne dressing pad on it (since it's supposed to draw out all the bacteria and pus from it and promote healing) and went to bed. When I took off the dressing pad, most of the pus was gone but there was a small hole where the pus had been drawn out...Is this normal..? The rest of the pimple is still intact, but where the pus was there is a small circular hole.. :wall:

What happened?

I just got some of these acne dressings, haven't used them yet.

I noticed your post, but it is from a long time ago.
