I have an extremely large and painful pimple on my face right beside my ear. How can I pop it without too much pain?
Large pimple Abscess: A large pimple may very well be an abscess. If this is on your face you may need this surgically drained. Do not pinch or squeeze this. Abscesses on your face are very very close to your brain. Please do not make this worse.
I know I need to see Dermatologist. Just possible causes of painful pimple like in scalp face chest with pus comes out. For a while.
Infected cyst: Warm compresses, of not effective see dermatologist to drain and possibly remove lesion. Minor mark at most.
Acne: Don't wash your face with body soap. Also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face. Try to find an acne wash system like neutrogena or something with benzoyl peroxide. Following low sodium diet might help too, since acne-causing bacteria like salt.

Acne remedies: There are many possible ways to treat acne correctly. It is a step treatment including:1. Skin hygiene 2. Antibacterials 3. Retinols 4. Photodynamic therapy 5. Laser. 6. Tretinoins in mix and match combinations, and oral contraceptives. If you have severe acne, please see a competent dermatologist before getting scarred.
Pimples: Are an unfortunate part of being a teen-ager. If you are older than that please see a dermatologist. A teen-ager can see one also. Be sure to keep skin clean, avoid make up that is not hypoallergenic and avoid trans fats as found in junk food. Do not use any skin lotion containing alcohol. Peace and good health.
Scientific Rx: The oral contraceptive pill can end acne in a woman who wants and can take it. Otherwise I start with benzoyl peroxide plus topical clindamycin, adding retinoic acid if there are blackheads and a suitable oral antibiotic if there's not a good result in 4 weeks. Dermatologists have stronger medicines. You have a right to a clear complexion.
Scientific Rx: If topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who will add something stronger to this regimen. If it's face-only, probably adding topical Clindamycin or a short course of a systemic tetracycline will do the trick. You can't cure acne but you can keep it under control until it self-cures as you get older.
Pimples on face due to waxing solution for this please Don't need the marks to last forever They are receding just need tips on taking care of it?
Keep oil away: From your face at all times, and that includes wax! Apply warm washcloth to your face or to any individual pimple as soon as it appears to help it get blood supply to kill the bacteria. Get out in the sun unless this makes your particular acne worse. Take vitamins A, E, D, and zinc. Wash with a non-irritating but non fatty soap. When these lesions are gone, try benzoyl peroxide.
