What to do After Popping a Pimple

Even though not popping your pimples is the best skin care solution, sometimes our impulses get in the way. Fighting off infection and scarring will be a problem after popping pimples, but in taking the proper preventative precautions, you can definitely reduce the infection from getting worse. Below are a few quick remedies and a solution recommended by dermatologists to aid healing of the popped pimple.

1. Clean the area with a cleanser or antibacterial solution. If it's bleeding, keep a warm compress on it to stop the bleeding.

2.The most important thing to prevent scarring is to not pick the area further. 

3. Dermatologists have a trick for healing popped pimples overnight: Hydrocolloid dressings. Dermatologists use these to help heal biopsy sites, surgical wounds, and ulcers. When applied to the site of a popped pimple, they absorb pus and oil from acne blemishes, removing the stuff that causes the popped pimple to look so bad.

How does hydrocolloid found in Cover-Dot help with popped pimples? After a pimple is popped, a dry scab forms. This dryness prevents healing by making it hard for the bad stuff to move through the crust or scab to leave your skin. Hydrocolloid dressings promote healing by creating a moist environment and drawing pus and oil out of the inflamed area.

These dressings typically have an adhesive inner layer which creates a moist environment and a breathable outer layer which protects the area from dirt and bacterial contamination.
