So about 4 weeks ago, i picked and popped a pimple on my cheek.

I kept picking at it until it scabbed, etc

the pore is still there and continued staying a bump..

now its back to a pimple again

the pore is like englared?

what do i do about this..

is it a a scar now?

Are you using any topical like benzoyl peroxide? What I do is dab a pimple with a little bit of benzoyl peroxide until it purges itself out. Try not to pick and that minimizes the possibility of scarring and spreading bacteria or damaging surrounding follicles/pores. I can't resist picking once in a blue moon either.

Your pore could quite possibly be scarred. Please find a way to manage your picking...

Take up some hobbies and such.

Once the pimple heals you'll be able to then see if the pore is really scarred.
