How to get a pimple come to head?

Ok so I recently popped a hard pimple and there was a scab, the scab fell off and there is a pimple underneath it. Is there a way to make the pimple come to head so I can pop it and be done with this pimple cycle in this area? It has been a while and it is just red and plump, no head nothing. What to do?

I just had one of these come up on the right side of my chin. It scabbed over and then the top layer of dry skin came off, but there was still a bump underneath. It's been about a week and the bump is finally almost gone. These are better to just leave alone and not mess with. You probably won't get anything out of it anyway since it is a cyst type pimple. Applying ice to the area can help with swelling. Other than that, just let it be and it will probably heal much faster. I've learned the hard way many times!
