Scabbed over zit?!?!?
So I tried to pop a zit, no success. Then it scabbed over. Now I have this big dime sized zit that has swelled up beneath a scab. I can't pop it, the scab blocks the pus from coming out. I'm not even sure if it will pop. What should I do?
it sounds like its just swollem around the root.
the best way to get rid is pop it. but you need to put some force into it, so you get the root out too.
the root is a firm white lump, not the liquid puss that surronds it.
its gonna bleed like hell, and hurt, but try this first.
and a bit of advice,....do it after work/school when you get home to give the swelling chance to go down before the next time.
i have suffered from acne for nearly 11 years now, and tried every type of tablet and lotion that my doctor has prescribed, and none have worked,.......thus knowing how to do it this way.
I strongly recommend that you put a tab of 'tea tree oil' on it with a cotton bud. That helps fight infection and will get rid of the pimple completely. Some pimples you just can't pop!!! Try the 'tea tree oil' and see if that helps.
Edit* you might have a cyst under there. That once happened to me when I tried to pop a pimple and it went further under the skin & then a scab came up. My advice is to put some tea tree oil on it and it will go. Mine did!!!
I agree with lovebug.
leave it and let the scab fall off otherwise it will re bleed and scab up again and you will have to wait longer for it to fall off again
put toothpaste on your zit then it will dry then you can pop it... but popping your zits is not advisable
Take a hot wet wash cloth and put it on the scabbed area. This will soften the scab. Then you need to put some soap on the wash cloth and scrub the holy hell out of the scab to remove it. Then again you need to place the hot wet wash cloth on the zit. This will draw the pus/ infection to the top and help it to pop. Or you can just pick the scab off and then use your knuckels to get under. behind the zit an its going to hurt but should pop with some force. Or if you have a sewing needle, you can remove the scab and then poke the zit right in the center of it and that will puncture it so that it will drain on its own, but if you do that, make sure the needle is sterilized, and then after you puncture it put the wash cloth on it to draw out the pus.
I have been there. After it scabs the best thing to do is leave it alone- as hard as that is. When that happens, I use neosporin to get the scab to heal faster. Once it heals, if you still wanna pop it then you can.
Also, a medication called Benziclin works WONDERS for me. It is a cream prescribed by my doctor. It keeps my face from having huge zits like I used to get. I still get a few blackheads but they are not that bad.
sterilise a needle and gently pierce the scab,the pus should just ooze out,good luck.
