You shouldn't pop it an overnight home remedy for pimples is to put a dab of toothpaste on it to help dry it out or else you can try Calamine lotion it will also have the same drying effect. More such solutions at http://solutionsforpimples.blogspot.com/
you really shouldnt pop zits....sometimes they will implode....and instead of popping...it will explode into your skin and you could get an infection and yea that would look even worse...just put some cover up on it and give it some time
Yeah it's ok. Toothpaste will shrink it and make it less red.
NEVER pop a pimple. It can cause lifelong scaring. You put the toothpaste on the unpoped pimple and it will dry it out and make it smaller. Put VERY little coverup over it...it can make the pimple worse. Why don't you just put a little spot bandage on it and leave it alone??
My 11 year old had a cluster of spots on her nose that just wouldn't clear. We put a small amount of 'Germolene' on a plaster (band aid) and left it on overnight; repeated a few nights and they cleared up really well - DON'T BURST IT!!
