HELP! Acne swelling, what to do?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Recently I had two pimples on my cheek and was very irritated by the large size of them. There was a little white in each center of them so I thought it was ready to pop. Well I was wrong! I popped them prematurely and they’ve left a big bump onto my face and it looks Iike bad rash. I’ve applied aloe vera gel and rosacea gel, which was what I originally thought it was, but none of it helped. Plus it’s super itchy and looks very inflamed, and is impossible to hide with makeup! Please help me!F0598690-EFD3-4273-BC03-864BF45AF101.thumb.jpeg.8dd0e7ff2e5dcc2649fab3c0bc06a7de.jpeg

Icing it for about 30 min - an hour should help the swelling and keep putting on aloe vera gel.

What I do is put more of a thin layer of aloe gel all over my face and let it dry before I put on makeup, but while you are not wearing makeup keep reapplying aloe

Update! At my doctor’s getting it checked out, hopefully this might help you guys? :)

my swelling has gone down drastically due to a medication my doctor prescribed- hydrocortisone cream 2.5%
