Need to get puss out of a pimple.

Hi, I have this pimple on my face. Its been on there for a month.
The pimple is not going down.
The problem is, I got to open up the pimple and get the puss out.
I'v read about using seasalt for this. You mix seasalt with warm water and put it on the pimple for a few minutes. Then wash off.
This could sting. Any other recommendations how to get puss out of a pimple.

Re: Need to get puss out of a pimple.

If you're talking about a whitehead then..
I know this sounds bad, but when I couldn't get puss out of a whitehead I used to disinfect a needle and just stick the needle in enough to make a tiny hole, then using a tissue, gradually push it out. It didn't hurt and didn't leave me with any scars

Re: Need to get puss out of a pimple.

Hi, I just did a google search about whiteheads.
It could be a whitehead or
a cystic acne nodule. Which is a pus filled lesion.
I might have to see a Derm for this.

Don't touch it because it's only going to take longer to get rid of. Let it go through it's course!

Re: Need to get puss out of a pimple.

putting a pin in a blue part of a flame, and *****ing it may help, after you have done this dab liquid tcp on it
