I've discovered this recently and it seems to work well. After squeezing out the pus, 1st take some tissue and dab off some residue. Then take a slab of St Ives Green Tea Cleanser put it directly on the pimple (like you would ben. peroxide) and leave it on for a five minutes - ten minutes or so, it should dry and then wash it off if (you are in the shower (this works the best). You should then be left with a nice dry area. Good luck.
