How can I get rid of redness in a popped pimple?

Leave it alone: If you hadn't popped the pimple in the first place it would be gone by now. I know how hard it is to leave pimples alone, but you'll be surprised how much less "angry" your face looks when you use your prescribed treatment and keep your hands off. I tell all my patients, "your face is not on strike, you don't have to pick it.". ...Read more

Redness from pimple: It is best to let it fade. Cosmetic make up can cover it. If it had to be treated it could be treated with a pulse dye laser. The most important thing is to see your dermatologist for therapy of the acne so that you won't continue to get lesions. ...Read more

Hyperpigmentation: The red spots may be Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation if the pimple has fully healed. This will likely improve over time (all scarring will lighten with time). There are treatments that can improve the appearance, including creams like hydroquinone, steroid creams and laser treatments like laser genesis. See a dermatologist or cosmetic physician to learn more about treatment options. ...Read more

Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'. ...Read more
