HELP! What course of action to take with BIG pus filled pimples?

Lately, I've been getting a few big pus filled pimples. After one is gone and I think good riddance, they rear its ugly head and appear in the same spot or somewhere else on my chin!

With these pimples, I avoid touching or popping them. The pus turns into a yellow scab, and eventually they fall off, unless by accident whilst patting my face dry with a face towel. However, it leaves behind a red mark. :(

Should I pop them instead?

If just pus comes out then yeah I would recommend popping it. Make sure to check out the "how to pop a pimple" page on this site just to be safe.

If they're going away on their own, you might just want to leave them alone. Or, like the pster above me said, you can check the How To Pop A Pimple page.

Hyperpigmentation (red marks) might happen either way, but keep in mind that picking at your skin increases the chances of scarring and red marks.
