For days now I've have this zip below my lip, that looked like something else but it not!..but yeah I got tired of the sucker yesterday and I guess rubbed it was a cotton swob till the puss came out. Now today I have this reddish scar kind of a little below my lip..What product or home remedy can reduce the appearance of it?

Here's a few tricks. First of all, a little sun will help fade small mild red areas (15-30 minutes a day). Then use a 2% salicylic acid wash (neutrogena pink grapefruit scrub is the best) and a 10% benzoyl peroxide treatment (acnefree terminator 10 seems to work faster) you can also use salt (iodized or sea salt) dissolved in warm water as a wash. Eat things that are rich in vitamin E, A, D, and C (few glasses of orange juice or something with antioxidants such as cranberry juice or a juice with pomegranate) another thing that helps if there is still puss beneath is to put hydrogen peroxide on a cotton ball and press it gently against the affected area. After you do all this, an oil-free face moisturizier will keep your face from drying out which overproduce more oil causing more acne. :)
And no I'm not metro or homo, but no one likes acne plus zits just hurt, so it's something I take pride in lol1
