If you really must do something about your pimple beyond washing your face and spot treating, ice or a cold compress can help reduce swelling. Wrap an ice cube or the compress in a soft tissue or cloth and apply it to your zit for 20-30 seconds at a time, a few times a day. In case of an emergency (like, prom), you can also see a dermatologist for a cortisone injection, which can help shrink the cyst down quickly in a day or two.
No. polysporin is in a vaseline base. The vaseline cuts off air and the bacteria can switch to anaroebic bacteria and the infection can get worse. Use calamine lotion to heal and shrink already popped zits and bites.

All of the methods above will work, it just depends on your kind of skin. Some are more effective than others, the ice being the best method. I, too, have tried the ice, and it did work, but only for a while. The lemon solution is a good way to calm down pimples, but the citric acid in it might sting, so as FABULOUS~1 said above, diluting the juice with water will have a less reactive result. The toothpaste is good for drying out spots, but you have to make sure that it is not a gel toothpaste. After you have done the toothpaste method, you should probably moisturise your skin afterwards because your skin will be very dry. I wouldn’t recommend the garlic method ; I haven’t tried it, but I’ve never seen that method online anywhere else. It will probably make your face smell, too. So far, for me, none of these method have truly worked, but I found that when I washed and moisturised my face, morning and evening, it definitely worked for me.
This video is about how to get rid of pimples. It’s a nightmare to wake up and discover a big, red pimple right on your face. Here are some tips to help you out. 1. Do not touch, or try to squeeze or pop the pimple. This can cause pain, redness, swelling, and even infection. If you keep doing it another possible problem that can develop is scarring which can be permanent. 2. Wash your face gently with a mild, medicated soap and water (the water should be warm, but not too hot). Do this for 30 seconds – 1 minute using your fingers. Now pat your face dry. Now you can start to use different remedies. Here are some safe ways to get rid of pimples (remember none are guaranteed to work for you). Every half an hour, put ice onto the pimple and hold it for about 2 minutes. This will decrease swelling and help to shrink the pimple. Apply a cream containing benzyl peroxide or salicylic to blemish. Note that these ingredients can both dry out skin if used too much and are not recommended for sensitive skin. Remove your makeup before going to bed and cleanse to remove dirt, oil, and makeup from underneath the skin. Dab a pea size amount of toothpaste only on affected area right before the bed. This can help soothe irritation and reduce redness. Pressing and holding a cotton ball with a dab for lemon juice against the blemish for 5 minutes can also reduce swelling. Honey is also great for helping to get rid of pimples as it kills bacteria. Dab some onto the pimple and wash of after 10-15 minutes. Crush some aspirin and add a little water. Dab onto the pimple and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Then wash off. Drink plenty of water (8 glasses a day) and fruits and vegetable juice. Chances are you will notice significant difference rather quickly-often within a day or two. If pimples become a recurring problem or worsen, see your doctor or dermatologist.
