Can Bp Prolong Established Papules?

By that I mean, papules that are sore and raised? I made a thread about a huge papule that had developed over several days, and while it is getting better very slowly, I was thinking of putting some 10% BP just on the spot to try and reduce it.

The thing was leaking pus like nothing last night. (sorry to sound gross) and after washing it just kept coming out. I haven't had one like this for ages.

The BP might make it worse if the skin is broken. Papules are essentially inflammed raises filled with bacteria. I would splash a lot of warm water and then cold water on that area to flush out any bacteria. Then maybe [if your skin isnt oily] put a calming oil on, like rosehip or argan, and maybe top w a good moisturizer and wait a few days to see if it gets better. Sorry, I didnt see your initial post.
