Which of these substances will dry out a pus filled pimple quickest??
If you got all the pus out but it still returned, you need to get the sac too. If you don't also get the sac where the pus is coming from, it will be able to refil. It'll be very thin membrane skin after you drain all pus and you might need sterilised fine-pointed tweezers to help get it all.
Pop it with a sterilised sewing needle. When all the crap is out dab at it with a clean cotton pool pad run under a very hot tap. Leave it for 15 mins or so to let it close up/scab. Then dab a small amount of sudocrem on it. Repeat the sudocrem before you go to bed.
I squeezed it as best I could without disturbing my piercing. All the pus came out and then I squeezed again until it was just watery/bloody stuff. There didn't seem to be anything more in there after that. Slapped sudocrem on and have just reapplied before bed.
It's already less painful than it was. Have ordered some magnesium sulphate paste from amazon to have in reserve.
