Question Slow Healing From a Pimple

I had what I thought was a pimple on my arm, and another on my chest. Strangely enough they both kind of line up (maybe an allergic reaction to something?) Strangely enough I tend to sleep on the side where this happened.

Needless to say I squeezed them and now both spots are taking a while to heal. I can be a bit of a picker, and sometimes pick at spots that are healing, a bad habit I know.

Is there anything I can do to help the process along and to minimize any possible scarring. The spots aren't big, but any help would be appreciated.

Dab some polysporin on it and it'll heal faster and prevent scarring.

Re: Slow Healing From a Pimple

put some vitamin e cream or echinacea cream on there twice a day... that should speed up the healing and reduce possible scaring....
