Recently I got a massive zit (one of those really deep ones) from stressing over finals, and the only thing I had to combat it was bp 10% cream (persagel). I also have a bunch of 2% salicylic acid products but those usually help me only for prevention, not for spot treating. Anyways, it took about a WEEK to really dry out the pimple, even tho i used it day and night, and now the spot is a lot darker and redder than my surrounding skin.. im wondering if it would've been better to let the zit come to a head and then pop it, b/c it seems to have scarred anyways! i was wondering if you guys knew of anything to help with bp redness. thanks! btw i use a glycolic/salicylic acid product day and nite, 50% glycolic peel occasionally, pd r-ala ocasionally, and super cp serum 1x a day. also, does the red marks from bp fade faster than normal red marks? thanks again!
