How to Get Rid of a Pimple ASAP

How to Get Rid of a Pimple ASAP

If you’re like most people, when you wake up in the morning with a pimple, the first thing you want to know is ‘how to get rid of a pimple ASAP!’  No one welcomes the unwanted bump on their face, but its important to remember not to pick at the pimple.  Picking at, or trying to pop, the pimple leads to more inflammation; increased inflammation means that the pimple might actually get bigger and will stick around for longer.  Additionally, more inflammation on your skin may increase your risk of developing a permanent scar at the site of the pimple.

Dr. Schwieger advises patients that, “The best thing to do, if you have a new pimple, is to make a same-day appointment to visit the Clear Clinic for a cortisone injection.  A diluted concentration of a medication called triamcinolone is injected directly into the bump.  This medication is anti-inflammatory and will flatten out the pimple in 24-48 hours.  There is no downtime or immediate effect, so many people stop by during their lunch break for cortisone injections.”

For those patients who are unable to stop by the Clear Clinic for a cortisone injection (which takes just a few minutes!), Dr. Schweiger has created the next best treatment: an at-home spot treatment solution to apply twice a day.  The spot treatment, called Home Cortisone Injection, contains a mixture of Clobetasol (a steroid solution similar to what is injected at the office), Clindamycin (a potent antibiotic), and Tretinoin (to unclog the blocked pore.)  The solution is intended for use twice daily, for no more than 5 consecutive days.
