Re: Help: Pimple Not Progressing
I've had these before - they're kind of hard and don't come to a point.. they're really under the skin, a far ways. Because there is no head, the opening pore is tightly closed. You need to get that pore open and medication into the pore. Do not forcefully try to pop it - avoid any touching with the fingertips. I'd suggest (3-4 times per day) you take a warm compress (a face cloth rinsed in hot water/rung out) and place it directly over the pimple. Keep it there for about 2 mins (the towel will start to cool). This will open the pore. Now, take any acne face wash (make sure it has salicylic acid in the ingredients) and dab it directly onto the pimple. Rub it into it (the freshly open pore will allow the medication to reach the bacteria deep under the skin.) and rinse it off with cold water. The cold water will immediately close the pore, trapping the face wash residue in the pore.
If you leave the pimple alone (ie: don't touch it) and in addition to the above procedure, wash your whole face twice a day, you should start seeing results in about 2 days! Good luck
