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

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

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
