I've had a large pustule for a week on my jawline that wouldn't go away, and today while cleansing I accidentally popped it. Right now I've put some polysporin with vitamin E on it... what else can I do? it's not particularly painful or anything right now and there wasn't any bleeding when I saw.

I hope you cleaned it with some kind of antibacterial soap or something so it won't spred :o

And yes, do not touch it :)

Cheers,

When you popped it...did you see a clear or yellowish liquid that came out from the pimple? Usually if you do pop it, accidental or not, you're suppose to gently squeeze out the liquid until you see blood, that's when you're suppose to put the neosporin etc. I always thought that putting medicine on before all the stuff comes out will only stop the pimple from growing again temporarily.
