Neosporin rubbed in several times a day in the early healing stages, and then BP to lighten the scar--this is for open pimples. Never put BHA or alcohol on open pimples except right after they open (to clean the pore out, but BHA is good for blackheads). They exfoliate and will pull the new skin right back off when they start to heal, prolonging the process. Once they are in the later healing stage and no longer open or oozing, however, BHA is great for them.
