How To Reduce The Actual Pain Of A Pimple?

Recommended Posts

My acne is fairly mild...just little papules and pustules every so often. It's easy enough to cover up, so I don't worry too much about the appearance.

But the little pimples are always so tender and painful. I'm always tempted to pick at them, simply because a scab hurts less than a pimple.

Does anyone have any tips or advice for reducing the pain of a pimple?

Ice and Ibuprofen!

Wrap some ice in a tea towel or something and apply gentle pressure.

Take an ibuprofen tablet.

Works every time.
