Huge pimple inside of my nose. swollen and painful, also i'm 22 wks prego!?

Do not squeeze

Head-nose
The best solution would be to see your local doctor. If this is not practical, a heated needle gently puncturing the pimple and allowing it to drain, assisted perhaps by inserting a tepid moist pack into the nose every 2 hrs for about 15 minutes might help, but if you get any new symptoms seek medical assistance immediately.

Can a pimple be red, swollen, painful, and itchy on my labia?

See gynecologist

Open-uri20131113-10040-a6l8f6
You should see a gynecologist as soon as possible. It could just be an infected hair follicle but it could also be an STD. It is always best to get it diagnosed by GYN so you can get the best treatment.

I have pimple like things covering my ankle, it is very painful and has become swollen around the area?

Infection likely

Pain
This sounds like it could be a viral infection (like herpes), a bacterial infection (impetigo or cellulitis), or a contact dermatitis (like poison ivy or other plant). Regardless, this deserves a look from your doctor to make sure you get the treatment you deserve.

Hot compress

Try a hot compress to bring it to a head and drain it. It may be necessary to take antibiotics, or in extreme cases to have a doctor remove it.

I popped what I think is a pimple on my chin, now the area is swollen, has hardened, and very painful. Is it infected and what should I do?

See Dr

Pimples
You need to see your Dr or Urgent Care for antibiotics. Warm compresses to area several times a day and topical triple antibiotic to area won't hurt, but get it checked.

I have a pimple like white patch on the inside of my bottom lip. It's very painful on the inside as well as the outside. It has my chin swollen as wel?

Possible infection

Acne
Needs to be evaluated by a physician as soon as possible. Without an examination there are too many possiblities. If sudden in onset and painful then infection is high on the list and would need attention ASAP.

Please tell what would cause a big pimple like thing on the side of my nose next to my eye that's painful and has my eye very swollen also ? I'm 58

Focal infection

Pain
In this location the most likely thing is a blocked lacrimal drainage system with focal infection of the lacrimal sac termed 'dacryocystitis'. Other soft tissue infections in that location are also possible but less likely. Have your ophthalmologist check this out. You will probably need an acceptable antibiotic and focal heat treatment.

A pimple Friday(was popped on same day) has since gotten bigger and swollen. Hard to keep eye open. Very painful red and a bit hard. What could it be?

Infection

The skin around the pimple has become infected. You could try warm compresses to get the area to drain, but you may need to see a doctor for an antibiotic.
