Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Pimples can be red, swollen and filled with pus by their very nature. They can also hurt. Symptoms of infection can be similar. Where is the pimple - on your face? How long has it been there? Pimples should start to heal within a week of surfacing but some can take weeks or even months to leave properly. Some leave scars. If this has been going on for sometime, please talk to a dermatologist.
