Zit around my mouth, applying Benzoleperoxide, getting bigger and redder. How do I treat this?

I popped a zit around my mouth a fewe days ago and it formed a scab thing and swelled up a lot. I have Ben putting benzolperoxide on it but I keeps getting redder and bigger. It s like a hill with a very hard top and really red around it. How do I get it to go away or become less visible? I seem to always get zits around my mouth.

According to your description it seems like a boil. Repeated boils may be an indicator of decreased immunity. You may check your blood sugar to begin with. Benzoyl peroxide may need to be supplanted with local antibiotics. There are similar conditions like herpes which need to be excluded. You can contact your physician for local examination and needful tests.
