Dark spot on face after pimple

Recommended Posts


I have been using the acne.org products for a long time and they have really cleared up my acne, thank you!

About a couple months ago, I had a big zit with white puss build up under the skin and I left it alone thinking that was best. It finally went away, but it left a dark, brownish area right next to my nose on my face. Not cool! I am pissed because I feel like I should have poked it with a needle and popped it, would that have been a smart idea?

What is the best way to treat this? I thought it would just go away after a little while but it has persisted and doesn't seem to be getting better. Other than this one spot I basically have little to no acne on my face.

I know something like this has probably been posted before but I just got off work and have to get back to it at 7:00am tomorrow so I don't have a lot of time to read the boards. It would be so cool if some of you guys could help me out! Thank you so much! :)

i'd say leave it alone and try using emu oil, aha products, or retinoid topical to further heal that pimple and get rid of the hyperpigmentation sooner.
