Boil (abscess): You're probably describing a boil or minor skin abscess (pocket of pus). As long as it's drained, you should be fine. But watch out for any surrounding redness or worsening pain. Obviously fevers, sweats & chills are a bad sign. If possible, take a ball point pen to the area & make a tight circle around it. Then date & time it for comparison later. If redness extends beyond, then you need 2 go 2er. ...Read more

Small hard white pimple on cheek won't go away. What is it?

Need to examine: Cannot say without examining you. You may watch and wait. If the "pimple" doubles in size, ulcerates, bleeds, nodes in your neck become large, you get fever or lose weight, see a doctor. The "pimple" is likely to fade with time.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

I had a pimple on my cheek and i popped it. 5 minutes later it turned black. after 3 weeks it hasnt gone away. what do i do? Today i used bp

It turned black: because you created a blood scab. It has persisted for 3 weeks perhaps because you are picking at it. This will cause the inflammation to become chronic and increase likelihood of scarring. The best thing for you to do is use a gentle facial cleanser (do NOT scrub), 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, and a light facial moisturizer everyday, and LEAVE IT ALONE. Seek dermatologist advice if that fails. ...Read more
