Quick remedy for inflamed pimple with no head ?

In brief: Warm compresses

The most important thing is not to pick or try to pop the lesion.
Warm compresses will help reduce the inflammation and perhaps draw it to a head. Lastly, over the counter products with benozyl peroxide can be used to dry out the lesion. If it is large contact you dematologist as more aggressive treatment may be necessary.

In brief: No quick remedy

But you can try tea tree oil, melaluca gel, or other otc meds and don't mess with it - that will increase the inflammation.
