Try not to squeeze or pick at the pimple! This can lead to acne scars and can make the situation look even worse.
Instead, for large, crusted, oozing, or deep acne lesions that need to heal, we recommend covering them with a hydrocolloid dressing overnight. Some options:
- Acne Spot Dot Patches by Peach & Lily
- Johnson & Johnson Tough Pads
- Kmart Smart Sense Advanced Blister Healing Bandage
- CVS, Walgreens, Band-Aid brands
- NexCare (Available in convenient sizes to cover acne blemishes)
