Picked At Blackhead. Now Really Red....need Help!

Recommended Posts

So I don't get blackheads very often. If I do get acne, it's small whiteheads and pustules.

I noticed a little blackhead on my cheek yesterday morning so I tried to pick it off with my fingernail. I know NOTHING about blackheads or removing them so I just absentmindedly did it. After I picked at it it bled a bit, and a small bump next to it/underneath it seemed to form, and the skin right next to the blackhead turned very red.

It's now been a day since I picked at it and it's still red. I put hydrocortisone cream/Neosporin on it last night which maybe helped a little bit but I'm not sure. What else can I do, and how long until it heals? How long until the redness goes away? I'm freaking out about this. sad.png
