dry layer of healing pimple

Recommended Posts

HELP! I NEVER pick my skin, but today I accidentally bumped my cheek where there was a healing pimple. It's a pustule that was pretty big (almost a cyst) and was drying up and still inflamed. I scraped off the drying layer and now all I have is the red bump. Is this going to scar?? Have I done something terrible? From what I can tell I didn't open up the pimple- it's just a great big red bump that's really obvious on the side of my face. UGH. I'm sick of this acne.

I wonder that too, but I think you'll be alright since it didn't pop or bleed. When this happens to me, I apply a thin layer of a liquid bandage to act as the lost layer. Hope this helps!

GO and buy polysporin or neosporin in the CREAM version not the ointment. Apply a dab to your healing cyst/zit and keep on as long as you can (when you're at home/going to sleep) it'll heal just like a wound, and MOST LIKELY not leave a scar.

Good luck! You can get the quick healing version too to maximize healing time.
