Cystic pimple under eyebrow, swelling, tried popping it, infection. Cure?

i have a cystic pimple just under my left eyebrow. it is common for me that when i get a pimple near my eye it causes the area to swell some. this pimple had been growing for a couple of weeks and was not coming to a head so i finally decided to try and drain the fluid out of it but when i woke up this morning it just seemed infected and my eyelid is so swollen i do not want to go into work today - it looks awful

Thanks for writing in.

Acne is caused by hormonal imbalance.
Blockage of sebaceous glands causes papules and pustule and cystic acne.

Acne is treatable now.With correct treatment all your pimples ,
scars and dark spots can be treated.

To start with you have to apply Brevoxyl cream twice daily .
Also you can use anti acne face wash like Brevoxyl face wash.

For swelling you can take tab ibuprofen.Also you can apply neosporin ointment over the area.

Discuss the option of Isotretinoin with your dermatologist.It will have rapid effect.

Hope this helps.
