Acne: During puberty, there is an increase in sebum production in the skin. Sebum and skin debris clog pores and the blockage results in inflammation. Gently cleaning the surface of the skin and applying acne medications such as benzoyl peroxide or prescription clindamycin help reduce the bacteria and clean up to the top layer of the skin allowing the pimples/comedones to clear over time. Good luck! ...Read more

Acne=infection.: Acne is truly an infection within the pores of the skin, so any effective treatment for acne should initially include both a drying agent (i.e. benzoyl peroxide) and an antibiotic (which could be topical or oral). In this area, remember that oils from your hair may also be in play so that may need to be addressed as well. ...Read more

Granulation tissue: It takes about two to four weeks for the new vessels supplying the damaged area to mature, and you may have postinflammatory pigmentation for another few weeks.

Manage it: Listen friend. Most of what you read / hear about acne is not true. You'll scar from a bad pimple whether or not it pops. If it's this severe, you need to prevent new pimples from forming -- you can do nothing about what's happened. Keep loading on the topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid and get with your physician to add some prescription Rx for a few months. Best wishes. ...Read more

Sounds like a "boil": Try what is called spoon bathing. Wrap some materials like gauze round a spoon to make a swab. Then dip it into boiling water and allow the steam from the "swab" to drift over the "boil" to provide heat. Be careful not to touch the skin with the heated "swab" and do not scald with the steam. It should be felt as a gentle heat applied to the "boil". It might come to a head this way and drain the pus. ...Read more
