How Long Will It Take For An Inflamed Large Pimple Without A Whitehead To Go Away Is It A Papula
How long will it take for an inflamed large pimple without a whitehead to go away? Is it a papula?
Usually a few days: Large pimples that do not have an outlet like a whitehead, may represent significant inflammation under the skin, and sometimes the presence of pus underneath. Some pimples may actually be a cyst related to certain sweat glands. A papule is a swelling of the skin of a certain size that may or may not be a pimple. Try not to pick or pop it as that may make it worse. If it gets bigger see doc. ...Read more
How long will it take a large whitehead pimple on my left side of my forehead to go away ? Do i pop it ?

Pimple is painful and growing 1 big and 2 very small whiteheads. Should I pop it? I have waited a couple days and it's not going away.
Warm compress: A warm compress can help bring infection/inflammation to the surface resolve faster. If you're compelled to pop it, better to use sharp needle cleaned with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide and poke into the side of pustule (whitehead). Don't poke downward into skin. Squeezing could make it more inflamed and spread inflammation through surrounding tissues, so not recommended. Anti-inflammatory too. ...Read more
I have 1 question .. can acne be cured? I used Accutane 9 months ago it cleared my big pimples but not whiteheads is this ever going to b cured 1 day
Can outgrow it: Acne isn't 'cured' but can be controlled with medication. Ask your Dermatologist for help with this. Acne can last into your 20's or 30's (occasionally into your 40's) so once you find something that works, don't stop the med once your skin improves (otherwise the pimples come back). ...Read more
