Huge red pimple burst on cleaning face, blood came out. Bump turned purplish black. How to remove it?

I have this huge and red pimple , i didnt really force it to pop or anything but it burst today while i was washing my face and there was quite alot of blood so i squeezed it and then it started to hurt quite bad. The pimple remained as a bump and it turned purplish black. Right now it still hurts when i touch it. Will the blackness stay? What am i suppose to do now???

thanks for using healthcare magic
I would be pleased to answer your question .
You should avoid pressing it further and never press on such a boil again . The dark mark is bound to stay for awhile. you should visit the doctor / dermatologist who will give you an intralesional triamcinolone injection in the area . They might also put you an oral course of antibiotic like azithromycin 250 mg daily for 3 days along with lactobacilli capsules

Thanks and take care
