    try taking 3 Advil before bed; that may help subdue any inflammation while you're off of it.

    and I agree: don't pop it.

    Thank you Scott. I haven't popped it.

    Man, I don't understand all the apprehension about popping it. I get something like that, I pop it, keep it clean, and use alcohol followed by neosporine. Those kinds of things hurt so bad and the relief I get by popping it ... OMG. I know we're not supposed to pop our pimples, but does anyone really follow that? There's something in there. It wants to get out. It will probably pop anyway unless you lie in bed all day and even then. I know everyone's different, but that's how I've always done it. YMMV.

    It looks nastier than I thought. Has anyone taken a look at it? It might need to be opened, but I am not sure that it is a good idea for you to do it. Keeping it covered with a bandaid and the neosporin is fine.

    My instinct would be to pop it. It doesn't seem completely circular as in pressure, but the red sprouting from it is concerning.

    I'm not a nurse though so ... ?

    What works for me is Bacitracin on a bandaid. Pimple is then gone in a day or two. I stop mine before the white head develops, so might be different though.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    I'm going to pop it tomorrow. It may be healing from the inside, but nothing is really changing on the outside. Also, I saw on Dr. Oz today that it should heal two times faster with Aquaphor, have any of yall used that?

    Thank you for all your replies.

    I've used Aquaphor but it was for antibiotic related skin irritation ... it looked like I had eczema. Personally, I'd only use that stuff on chronic dry skin.

    Once popped, THAT would be the time to use your neosporin and cover it. It's not a good picture though, so do what you think is best ... if you can't keep bodily waste from touching it, I wouldn't pop it either.
