Popped Pimple Under Nose - More Swollen

Recommended Posts

Hello! I popped a whitehead under my nose yesterday, and only a tiny bit of pus came out, and then it started bleeding. I put an ice cube up to it for a couple of minutes and slept with nothing on it. Today, it's a lot more swollen, red, and painful. Every time I talk, it just throbs. I woke up and tried to extract some more pus, but nothing came out. I'm using the ice cube again right now, but it's not helping. Can someone please tell me how to get rid of this popped, and probably now infected, pimple or what's left of it?

If ice isn't helping, I'd try heat. Just wet a washcloth with hot (not too hot) water and use as a compress 4 times per day, 10 min per time. Apply polysporin after each treatment.
