First, you need to assess your scar situation. If the pus of your pimple is deep beneath the surface of the skin, avoid touching it for it will definitely leave a scar and forcefully popping it out could be very painful. Only pimples with whiteheads can be popped out.
Wash your hands and your face thoroughly with an antibacterial soap.
Open your pores by steaming your face. you can take a hot shower, or you can also get a towel soaked in hot water and apply hot compress on your pimple for 5 minutes.
Get a cotton ball soaked in hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol and wipe it on your pimple.
Wrap your two index fingers with a clean tissue paper and press them against your pimple. This method will allow the puss to find its way out.
Wipe the emptied pimple with hydrogen peroxide and apply an ice cube on the area to close the pores.
drink plenty of water to wash out toxins of medicines you have taken.
apply lime juice mixed with salt on pimples for 3 days.
take care
please do let me know at
