Red pimple: Hello sweetie, one thing you can do is apply warm compresses to the area. This will bring more blood flow to the area and either allow your body to heal it and re-absorb the contents, or it will bring the contents to the surface and eventually release it. Try not to squeeze it, this often creates scar tissue, and sends some bacteriia deeper into the skin, potentially worsening infection. ...Read more

I have a pimple looking thing on my penis and I have bursted it. Some pus and blood have flown out from it please tell me what to do to get rid of it?

Do not burst pimples: You could very easily scar your penis if you manipulate a sore. Soaking it with a warm wet cloth or in a tub of warm water can help the pimple come to a head and burst naturally. You may need to get to your pharmacy and ask for some ciprofloxin. Take 500 mg twice daily for at least seven days. ...Read more

Solar retinopathy: Looking at the sun too long can actually burn the retina in the back of the eye. Symptoms may fade or be permanent depending on the severity of the damage.
