Thanks for posting your query.
It seems that you have got your pimple infected in the process of squeezing it. It now needs systemic antibiotics to control the infection. Taking next 2-3 days. You can continue taking the anti inflammatory drugs round the clock in appropriate doses.
You can consult your dermatologist for the proper antibiotics required in your case.
I hope this answers your query effectively.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
