How to Draw Out a Pimple – Home Remedies for Cysts Acne – Home Treatment for Under the Skin Pimples

Post from:

I’ve been struggling with some stubborn, huge, under the skin pimples on my upper chin that feel more like a tumor than the usual zit. Uggh!! they sting like hell and extremely difficult to cover up. These pea-sized bumps refused to develop a white head and even worse, they feel like it takes eternity to heal and no medicine seemed to work at this point.

That being said, I was desperate and the time had come to search hard for the solutions and here’s the few things I discovered in pulling out the pimple under the skin, allowing them to ease down faster.

1 PRID’s Drawing Salve


I got this ointment from Amazon after hearing it from a friend who swears that this salve works great. I did my research and read lots of people talking about the numerous usage of this ointment but I primarily bought this for my ridiculous zits that refused to subside. I received my package last Friday morning and immediately smacked it down on my swollen acne and in just couple of hours, pus have noticeably emerge to the surface.

In fairness, I did “medicate” the pimples using hot and cold compress the night before, therefore the “drawing” time seemed to minimize and by around 11 pm that night, my toughest pimple was draining a lot. So I decided to dab extra salve around the zits, placed band-aids in it before hitting the hay. I woke up the next day and saw the redness went down by around 60% and since the zits had produced some white heads, I went ahead and pop and drain them … I know, I know.. popping pimples is bad for the skin but in some cases, I simply need to take action.


In addition to zit-busting and anti-inflammatory properties like Phenol and Ichthammol (that includes a significant amount of Sulphur), it also consists of Calendula for healing, Arnica for bruising, and Echinacea for its antiseptic properties. This dark, slick and intensely offensive to the nose ointment is more efficient than any other homeopathic treatment that draw out a pimple or even a boil. If you don’t mind the smell of bitter medicine on your skin, you should grab this salve right now. It works like magic.

2 Hot and Cold Compress

Another method that could accelerate the healing process of a stubborn zit is by using the hot and cold compress. Just immerse a face towel or a clean washcloth in hot water, making sure that your skin can withstand the heat. Wring it down and place the hot towel on the affected area, repeat the process when the face towel has cooled off. Continue doing it for as long as you have ample time. Doing this will soften and draw the bacteria to the surface.

Alternate the hot compress with cold compress every 10 minutes until the zit will develop the white head or start to numb. The hot and cold compresses will dilate and shrink your acne, aiding to draw out the pus and take the infection out to the surface. After that, you can spot treatment the area using solutions that contains 2% salicylic acid to zap down infection quickly.

3Milk & Tea Bag Compress
Milk has properties that help to draw out infection. Consider soaking a teabag in milk, because teabags also contain healing properties called tannins particularly in black tea that aid to minimize inflammation. Apply the milk-soaked teabag overnight and you’re likely to see your cyst shrink or come to a head over the course of several days.

4Hydrogen Peroxide
Dab a q-tip in the peroxide and apply it to your zit and let it stay for couple of minutes. This treatment will help draw out the pus and reduce the size of the pimple. Just be aware that the peroxide seriously stinks and it might hurt a bit. To lessen the smell, hop inside the hot shower and the hot steam will abate the reek while opening up your pores.

    Hello friend
    help me to treat whiteheads from the cheeks, grown immensely all over the under eyes & adjoining areas.

    You can treat whiteheads by steaming your face over a bowl of boiling water for 10 minutes (because steaming opens the pores). After steaming, gently push the whiteheads out of the pore. But remember not to force hard, it can cause scars or broken veins.

    OR you can use cotton ball and dip it to the Apple Cider vinegar and apply to the affected area just after steaming. Don’t rinse.

    Another method is by applying organic raw honey directly without mixing anything on problem areas after cleansing the skin. Leave for 10 minutes, rinse off with warm water and splash with cold water to close the pores.

    Make sure to exfoliate your face with baking soda at least 1 or 2 times a week. Just grab 1 tsp of baking soda and add a little water to make a paste consistency and apply to your damp face. Rub the mixture GENTLY with your fingertips in circular motion and rinse as usual.

    Great tips! I hate those “underground” zits. It leaves me questioning, will I ever have clear skin before I have to start worrying about wrinkles? Grr!!

    I use hot compresses and hydrocortisone cream. I’ve read a doctor saying to put a large amount on the spot and cover it in a bandaid to totally absorb in while you sleep, and it can be almost as effective as getting a cortisone shot. Another option for those who can’t get/don’t want to use the salve.

    The back, neck, chest and shoulders can also be attacked by acne not just the face.

    However, if your skin is suffering from acne scarring, the
    skin is in healing mode and more susceptible to the sun and its harmful rays.
    The soothing effect helps ease the irritation and the acne is cleared away
    without leaving any trace.

    No, it wont clog your pores if you follow the instructions by cleaning your face first and splash with cold water to close the pores. By then, you can place the band aid to cover.
