Pimples: The most important thing is to not apply pressure to the area in attempt to make a head or “pop” the pimple. This can cause further infection or scarring. Make sure you are cleaning your face twice daily with a facial cleanser and try applying benzoyl peroxide 2.5% afterwards to the area. Any higher may cause irritation.
