OK - so first, no more home treatments like garlic. Also, you can ask a pharmacist at your local drug store for a product recommendation.
Second - don't panic - stress will make it worse. This is what I would do if I were you. If it's big and hard like a cyst, put over the counter benzoyl peroxide product on it and don't touch it, pop it, etc. It's SOOOO hard not to mess with it but you just can't. It will make it worse. This is one of the active ingredients in Duac - so should help.
If it is just a regular whitehead pimple (the doc would tell you not to do this) I would wash my hands very well, pop it, wash the area, put benzoyl peroxide on it and then leave it alone. Do not mess with it. It's only Tuesday - fingers crossed that this will work. I'll be wishing you luck!!!
