Blackhead-Popping Marks?

Recommended Posts

So 3 days ago I popped some blackheads on my nose, and I still have the ugliest red marks, I sterilized everything so I doubt theres infection, and after I put ice on it, and after that I applied hydrocortisone 1%.

what can I do to make these marks go away?

thank you in advancepost-416123-0-89887900-1408078442.jpg

When you pick or pop spots they often leave red marks - these marks can take several months to fade. Don't worry too much about it, they shouldn't be permanent. To speed up the fading process, you can apply AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) - glycolic acid is probably the most common AHA. You can buy it as a cream - normally at your local chemists. acne.org also sells an AHA cream. Hope that helps.
