a single folliculitis pimple

Recommended Posts

i have what appears to be a folliculitis infection, as it is only mildly infected and has a hair growing through the small white head. however, it is affecting only one pore.

how long does this take to hea or subside? what should i do to treat it in the meantime?

i'm on accutane, and i have benzoyl peroxide that i could put on it.

i would pop it, but that's just me. then again, popping is bad when you are on accutane. if it's an ingrown hair i don't think the peroxide will help and i definetely wouldn't mix that with the accutane, it will more then likely dry out your face really bad

i can't pop it. it's like there's nothing liquid inside.

i've considered plucking the hair, but the more i read, the more it seems that could lead to another infection or ingrown hair.

ahhhh, how long do these take to resolve on their own?

Yea I would do what the other person said.. I would pull out the hair and leave it alone.. maybe put some neosporin on it to help it heal.
