gently icing a pimple can often reduce the swelling and redness of it.

Just be super gentle and don't press on it, just gently run an ice cube over it briefly after you wash. Then do the bp/moist. as usual.

if you are gentle, and only ice an isolated pimple once or twice a day (for just a few seconds), it shouldn't irritate. You certainly wouldn't want to do your whole face, or a whole section, just one pimple.

However, if you have a heavy hand, do so at your own risk.

I'd like to add a suggestion for the inflamed spots. You could try dabbing a bit more of BP on them after you've applied your normal BP dosage. Icing them and applying more BP worked great for me. :)
