Leave it alone: Leave it alone. Just wash it as normal, don't put any chemicals on it (including acne cream or lotion). It will heal.
Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more

How can I get rid of swelling on my chin from an underground pimple, ice and tea bag does not seem to be working?
Infection: You have an infection. Please see a dermatologist for treatment.
Local care: You have just drained an inflamed, sometimes infected, abscess. Warm baths/showers to clean the area, followed by cool compresses. Folk wisdom will suggest following this with some witch hazel. Treat the area gently and it will settle down over time. Next time avoid abusing the skin by popping pimples.
Hour do I get rid of the redness around my pimple on my nose without using medications over night?
Cover up: Although some lasers such as ipl may work that is probably excessive. Your best way to get rid of the redness is to conceal it. The redness is due to the inflammatory process which takes place over a 48-72 hour period. Salicylic acid may help but it is a medication and you do not want to use these per your request.
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.".See 2 more doctor answers
Improve, not remove: Scars are permanent. Having said that, there are ways to make them less noticeable. The first is time: scars mature over 6-18 months and don't assume their final form till then. Other methods are pressure, silicone sheeting, mederma, steroid injections or surgery. Surgery is a last resort for most scars, but many can be improved in this way if all else fails.
Probably not: Eyedrops are not formulated to penetrate the skin, so they are not likely going to be effective. See your dermatologist for proper medication.
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.
Hello I am Akhil I am having some problems since yesterday I am having a pimple on my starting of hips they are a bit painful and got redness how to get rid off them?
Red hip pimple: May be eczema (usually not painful) or infection- folliculitis/ abscess. You can try over the counter topical antibiotic like bacitracin and wash the area with hibiclens (found in pharmacy). if it does not get better in next 24 hours MUST see doctor/urgent care to get it drained and for oral antibiotics f/u with doc.
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'.
Inflammation: If your acne/pimples were recent and they're just now going away after treatment, you may just still have some inflammation from your body trying to fight off the cause of the pimple in the first place...Bacteria. It may however be possible to use a topical steroid to reduce the inflammation, like Hydrocortisone which you can get over the counter.
What can I do or use to get rid of my first blind pimple on my nose? I know I can't get results over night, I want to reduce redness & inflammation.
Pimples grew n uttocks leaving dark spots after redness looks terrible and staying for months. Cant get rid of them+ I wear 100% cotton undies. Help!
The good news: You are describing two different problems. Acne in the buttock area is not unusual. Tight, non breathable pant will make things worst. The darker pigmentation is a result of the healing process. Uv from the sun causes the red spot to heal with a darker look. Kind of like a tan. Sunlight will go though the weave in your cloths. Hydroquinione will bleach the color back to normal.
How do I get rid of acne redness quickly, maybe in 24 hours, the pimple is right on the middle of my nose?
After getting my eyebrows waxed my skin around it had a bad reaction would tea tree oil calm the redness and get rid of the tiny itchy pimples?
Tea tree oil may sting: If the area is already irritated, using tea tree oil may sting, burn, or irritate the skin. So it may make the area more red and inflamed. You're better off using something that's much more mild and less stinging. Pure lavender oil (lavandula agustafolia) is more soothing, because it has less camphor in it, but if it's made from (lavandula), it will be just as irritating as tea tree oil. So read your labels.See 1 more doctor answer
