Could this be a scar, or one forming? Am I treating it right? Help : (

Recommended Posts

I squeezed really hard on a pimple a few days ago... it came out - the next day one formed right beside it likely due to irritation, the area a bit swollen. I got that out too, but for the last 2 days after that the area doesn't look raised, but it's a little red/brown with PIH, and if I put my finger over it against cheek bone, there's a bump that hurts a little - is it probably a stuck blackhead/whitehead underneath? Or can hypertropic/solid scars hurt and form within a few days

I've been applying pure Aloe, tee trea oil/lavander, then massaging polysporin cream onto it, leave it alone for 10 minutes, then cover it with a dab of Manuka honey.

I'm guessing I should keep applying this stuff and ABSOLUTELY NOT try to get the possible remaining blackhead out. I stress over acne abnormalities, or if they keep getting infected.
