Popping and picking left me with this mess, please help!

Recommended Posts

Hello! I had a nasty zit a couple days ago which I popped before it was ready. Then trying to fix the issue yesterday I tried picking at it just a bit, which of course made it much worse. I have been using polysporin triple and Lamaisl as a treatment so far but no improvements. Really need some help guys!! 

I have attached photos of the progression. Any tips or tricks are welcomed. Thank you!!

Your skin condition is great wowza and I’d suggest using rose oil as it seems to have left a scar. Practically most of my face is full of scars atm aha but my friend suggested rose oil it helped her but I’m going down the medical route for mine. Good luck

You think it left a scar??? Why is that? I really don’t want a scar there.

in my experience, thats just natural acne damage, somewhat like a cut, which normally heals after a few weeks/months. (if you dont want these types of marks, dont pick your spots)

but there is a good product i use some times called savlon advanced healing gel, it helps with healing and reduces likelihood of scarring.

Do you really think it will take more then a week to heal?
