Tea Tree is an antibacterial agent, and you can certainly try that. They also make a variety of anti-inflammatories, some that are non-steroidal, to help reduce the red inflammation and swelling.

I've had some good result with Vitamin E on healing, and despite it being oily it can help dry the skin out a little bit.

Some of the acne treatments can make it worse, though, because the skin is trying to heal and the medications irritate it, making it actually look redder!

happy birthday!

i would recommend using aloe on your skin, i like the way it soothes.
i think you should go somewhere today and be seen on your birthday. there is nothing that should be keeping you from going out.
celebrate your life. people will accept you, and you are beautiful!

I always use MSM gel - I get one from a UK company. But a lot of people at other acne boards love Jarrow MSM gel. It's very antibacterial and helps to exfoliate too and helps with red marks.

I used to use tea tree oil, but I found that it could burn.I was once left with a burn mark for a week - painful!

Aloe is supposed to be good too but it doesn't seem to work for me.

Try Copper Peptide Serum. They will heal pratically overnight and the redness will be gone within a few days. You can search online for more info.

Hello Stasia12,

Colloidal silver will take the redness out, kill off the bacteria and help heal the skin. Just daub it on. Try it, you'll like it, and it won't turn you blue, and when you're all pretty again, you might be able to reschedule your party. Olive

Re: how to make pimples heal faster after they pop

hi i am the queen of bad skin. i strongly recommend:
- zinc tablets - well know for its skin healing powers
- witchhazel - excellent for skin repair
- NO hot baths/showers - hot water/high temperatures increases the amolunt of sebum you produce (the stuff that produces spots)
- if you take any very high/rich multivitamin tablet substitutes cut them out as they increase the energy in your blood giving you a "glow", or in the acne sufferer's case, the appearance of a red, inflamed face with even more spots than you actually have!

i strongly recomment you do all these, because since i have been following these simple rules my complexion has improved by leaps and bounds. and remember - squeeze when they're big and puss-filled but never EVER pick!!!!

good luck <IMG SRC="">
