What to do after popping a pimple?

I just popped a pimple on my nose. What should I put on it so that it won't scar much and will heal fast? What can I do to get rid of the redness? I had to pop the pimple. It was one of those that if you extract the plug, all the blood and pus will come out, shrinking the pimple dramatically.

Try tea tree oil or aloe vera gel...both have antibacterial properties to prevent infection.

After I pop a pimple I usually clean it off with a dab of bactine and slap on neosporin afterwards.

hey brian, what i usually do is put tcp- normal antiseptic lotion on after to stop any spread of infection. tcp is english so umay not no what it is! Basically its just the normal antiseptic u have in ur medicine cupboard which u would use for grazes, cuts etc.

Hi Brian,

I suggest you apply Neosporin (OTC antibiotic ointment) over the spot as it speeds the healing process and reduces the chance of scarring. HTH!
