put full strength peroxide on it, now it appears as a burn

User Profile
I had a pimple above my lip. I drained it and then put full strength peroxide on it. Now the pimple seems to be gone and there is what appears to be a 1/2" by 1/2" inch burn there. It is extremely sore & painful. Nothing seems to help it-I tried Bactine, triple anti-biotic ointment & Mupirocin.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Popping pimple was not wise. Wait and see, It take some time to self resolve and heal. Kepe applying the ointments

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
