I had a relatively small pimple which I attempted to pop, but it kept coming back. At this point it has grown to be quite large, and very red. I'm currently taking 500mg of Cefadroxil (Cefa, Duricef, Ultracef) 2x a day, as prescribed by my dermatologist, and have been for well over a year now. I fear I might've developed an immunity to the antibiotic, but that's another issue.

Anyhow here are some pictures I took today. I was wondering whether anyone's had a similar issue, and has recommendations on how to clear this up ASAP. So far I've been trying a little Hydrocortisone, and I also just bought some Tea Tree Oil (just as an FYI). Thanks in advance for suggestions!

That one looks like the type if you just leave it, it will go away. mostly any topicals you put on

will just make in redder and angrier. You could try a warm face cloth to draw it out, or maybe a sea salt bath.

Seems like i'm always recommending sea salt to everyone but i swear by it, it works!
