Pimple - Scab - Pimple

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I put toothpaste on one of my pimples and I guess it dried up because the next day I had a scab there. I put neosporin on it and in a few days it came off. Under it is a new pimple, it's not as red, a bit brown-ish and is a bump. How do I go removing it? There's no pus showing, but its a brown-ish bump pimple.

Don't use toothpaste. First, it can be irritating. Second, you absorb the fluoride through your skin. Third, I don't believe it has *any* antibacterial properties.

Treat it with BP. You can use AHA, too. If/when it opens, use antibiotic ointment.
