Re: bruises after pimples?
Actually, you're right on target. That sounds like a bruise; I've had something similar, and my face was painful to the touch. I had a huge pimple, and that day the rest of my skin was clear, so I was so aggravated...it was the worst thing I've ever done, though. I left a bruise, which somehow eventually developed into a scab, which eventually developed into a scar. I'm trying to get rid of the scar but I'm pretty sure my efforts are in vain. Since it's not a pimple, pimple creams would be useless for your problem. I found that cold water on washclothes pressed against the bruise sort of numbed the pain and helped it heal a little quicker; if the scar comes it's important to use sunscreen so it's not more visible if you get tanned and try Mederma or if you can't get that, Vitamin E capsules. The Vitamin E may even help the bruise, but there really aren't any acne medications that will help it.
