Hi all -

I'm a bit lost as to what to do with my current situation. I'm presently on Finacea gel which has been working pretty well so far. I have a lot of clogged pores on my forehead, and it's been bringing them to the surface without much of a problem. However, last weekend I noticed a small bump in the center of my forehead. I left it alone for a few days, applying salicylic acid each night. Last Monday, though, I was stressed and irritated and - a bad, bad idea - I ended up squeezing it far too much and scratched the skin off.

This whole past week it's been healing. I've been applying zinc oxide and aloe vera gel each night. The scab fell on on Thursday and now it's just an area of new pinkish/red skin but there's still a bump there. I'm not sure how to get the stubborn thing to a head. It's currently a hard protruding ball on my forehead.

I have a bunch of topicals at my disposal, and I've been applying my Finacea regularly. I used calamine lotion on it last night, but I'm not sure if I see much improvement. I also tried an aspirin mask which usually brings my pimples to a head, but no luck with this one.

Advice? Any suggestions are helpful!
