Is it papules?

Recently, i have a few red bumps..they have white heads, but not really visable and it seems as tho you cant squeeze them out. I have waited for about 1 week, and they are still there.How do i get rid of them?

Do NOT try to squeeze them. The only time you should ever (well, you should never, but sometimes you just have to) squeeze a pimple is when the redness is completely gone and it has a large plump white head.

For your papules, apply BP generously to them twice daily, and leave them alone. They should decrease soon. If you really want to, you can try soaking a hot wash cloth on them two to three times daily, which can help coax them to a head. It's your call, just don't aggravate them!
