Hey everyone, so i had this nodule on my cheek for nearly 2 weeks now, its been growing and growing, didnt form a head but was edging to be got rid of.

I couldnt stand it anymore and popped it with a clean needle after comming out the shower. I know you're not supposed to pop, but i couldnt help myself. I was relatively gentle, but now im just worried about scarring or it reforming.

Ive iced it for 20 minutes to help reduce inflammation.

What else can you do to speed up healing and prevent scarring? Any tips/experience/feedback is greatly appreciated

Thanks =)

Whenever I pop a zit with a sterile needle I use a q-tip to apply a very small daub of which hazel to the popped zit. You don't want it to get infected!

Tea Tree oil and Grapeseed oil will help with inflammation and healing.

Every now and then If I have really bad inflamation I take an ibuprofen, however acne is not the best reason to take it...
