Maybe some bp could help?

Edit: I mean, try to dry it off with that. some ice would help, too (what I have heard). Best of luck!

Do you happen to have prescription medicines from a dermatologist?

A friend of mine had a pimple on her nose for quite awhile. I suggest BP if you do not have prescription medicines such as Duac or Retin-a Micro. Icing will lessen the swelling for a little bit, but in this heat the redness will just come back.

Definitely don't scrub it since it'll irritate it without a doubt. I suggest you start a regimen so that there's a chance that these pimples won't even form.

Papules usually last (for me at least) about a week. If there is a head (basically if the pimple is filled with pus already) I think its safe to pop it. There are lots of articles online about how to pop a zit safely. If not, I'd recommend just leaving it alone. You can try icing it and applying bp (as someone above said).
