What is the fastest way to get rid of pimples?

Get seen: All acne is manageable but it's work and there's no overnight cure. If the prom is coming up and your acne hasn't been managed, and your acne is bad, I'd perhaps start you on topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid plus systemic tetracycline. Your physician's the one to see now. You'll be glad. Best wishes. ...Read more

What's the fastest way to get rid of a pimple in a day with stuff you have at home?

Cover it!: There's no quick way to get rid of a pimple in just 24 hrs. Especially if it is a deep one. If time is of the essence (like family photos etc) then you would be better off trying to conceal the pimple rather than squeezing it and ending up with more redness and swelling!

Until it self-cures, use topical benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid and/or a retinoic acid derivative as tolerated. If you're not clear in two weeks, get with your physician. Be prepared to manage this for years or decades. ...Read more
