I'm trying very hard to leave my pimples alone and not pop them. But if I don't pop them they just sit there forever and never go away. I have one right now that I've had for nearly 2 weeks. I haven't touched it, but have been applying a spot treatment of salylic acid a few times a day. So it's still there....hasn't come to a head or popped on it's own, hasn't gotten smaller. This seems to be the case anytime I get a pimple and leave it alone.....does this happen to you guys too?
If the spot has collected pus, it's best to pop it, because otherwise it won't heal. But try not to use your fingers. Instead, when you shower, run hot (not too hot though) water over your face, and it should pop by itself. Leave the spots with no heads alone, and they will go away eventually.
