Popping caused burn on my skin? Help!

Recommended Posts

I had an inflammed whitehead that i popped (with a needle) but i think i pressed too hard. I applied some rubbing alcohol on top and stopped the bleeding. I applied epiduo on top then applied vaseline so it doesnt scab, i felt a burning sensation and the surrounding turned brown so i thought it may be pih? It wasnt as the brown pigmentation was some sort of scab which scratched off. Under it was pink skin. The pink skin is now sort of purple and turns white if pressure is applied (blanching). Please help What is this?

I have something similar to what you described . I had a pustule on my chin area and I decided to clean it out but applied to much pressure on my skin causing is to swell. The next day I saw the skin turn brown . Is there anything that we could apply to it for the skin to heal faster
