I noticed an ingrown pimple on my upper lip right on the edge of my lip, it actually was able to be popped but a day later i noticed a little ball still their like on the edge of my lip but their was no way to pop it because its ingrown so i tried poking it with a needle and it worked some puss came out n blood but now a day later i can still feel a little ball in my lip ive tried popping it again with a needle but nothing but blood comes out. I can still feel a little ball on the edge of my lip how do i get rid of it?
Do not pop pimples, or pierce them with a needle. This spreads bacteria under the skin leading to more spots in the same area, delayed healing time and risk of secondary infection. Look for a spot treatment which can be applied precisely to a small area, ByeByeBlemish make one.
If your acne is moderate or severe, see your doctor for a prescription strength acne gel and/or a course of oral antibiotics. Female acne patients may also benefit from taking an anti-androgen contraceptive pill such as Yasmin, which blocks the effects of male hormones on the skin.
Best Wishes, Eloise.
