Dr. Christopher Crosby
Dermatology 16 years experience
Yes: 'blind pimple' is a colloquial term for deep pimples that have not yet "come to a head." as with any pimples, it is important not to manipulate them as it can lead to an infection. Simple home remedies should be limited to warm compresses and gentle cleansing. If you have a recurrent or worsening problem, see your dermatologist.

TLC: Popping a pimple damages the surrounding skin. Apply warm compresses to get all the pus out, don't scrub it, don't pick at it, let it be. Do apply an anti-bacterial ointment or cream. Avoid direct sunlight or you will pigment the area.

How to treat a pimple?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Gels/creams for acne: For treatment of acne pimples, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or differin (adapalene) gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral contraceptives (for women) and oral antibiotics are options also. If acne pimples are severe, a dermatologist may prescribe accutane.
