Why do I have a dark pimple?

Hi guys, I have a pimple on my cheek that's very dark purple. My skin is light brown and when I get pimples they're usually red. This isn't a mark left by the pimple, but the pimple itself is still inflamed and it's dark purple. It looks like it's bruised. Initially it was a very big pimple that has gone down to a smaller red zit, but I tried popping it yesterday and it hurt too much to do so I gave up. It didn't bleed and the next day I woke up with it looking very dark and purple. Can anyone tell me why this is and what I can do to make it go away?

Hmm, without a picture it's hard to tell you what's wrong, but it sounds like you might have ruptured the skin or something. You shouldn't be popping your zits anyway, because you'll be left with scars.
