Cystic pimple bleed on own?

Recommended Posts

I got a sudden outbreak of cystic pimples, so I've been taking the prescribed medication that my derm gave me. It's been working moderately well. Today, after washing my face, I noticed that one of the flattening cystic pimples was bleeding on its own, but I didn't pop it.

I gently tried to clean it up with a cotton swab, but white stuff came out? I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with this. I don't want it to scab/scar. Why did it pop on its own? I thought it had healed and was unaware there was still stuff below the surface. It hurt to touch. I am going out on a date soon and scabs are harder to cover up with concealer. Ugh.

i always think like ok ill have that ugly scab for a couple days.

or i pick it off and cover it up and have a mark/scar for a long time.

i know its hard but its worth it not to pick it.
