A pimple that doesn't want to go away.

Hi all, I have a big pimple that doesn't seem to go away. It has been on my right cheek for more than 3 weeks now. Should I pick it or should I leave it alone, but will it go away?

I heard that you can go to a dermatologist and get a cortisone injection. Have you tried applying a warm wet cloth to it? Steaming your face? applying benzoyl peroxide? I heard hydrogen peroxide works too.

Thanks, sunfell. I will apply a warm wet cloth to my pimple as you said. I just applied a little bit of Benzaclin onto the site hoping that it will help. Nah, don't want any injections.

Don't pick on it!

I have two cystic acne under my chin. It's been there for 2 months now. I can't say there's anything that helps it go away but time. Mine is gradually getting smaller after two months. If you don't want indented scars, don't pick them.
