A pimple is a little infection. Neosporin works wonders, and so does a hot compress to calm it down a bit. Don't squeeze it or pop it, as it will make things worse.

Does your cover up have a bit of green in it? If not, you may want to find one that does. Green, color-wise, is the compliment of red and can lessen how angry the pimple looks. Also make sure your cover up isn't going to make any acne worse.

A quick and fairly extreme way is to visit your dermatologist and ask for a cortisone shot.

A less extreme, less pricey way is one of those overnight acne spot treatments, either in a little patch or cream form. Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque, applied as a spot treatment, can really help.

Above all, do not try to pick at it or extract what's inside to deflate the area. That often causes scarring.
