Now, I totally know that I shouldn't have tried to pop it. It's not good and all, it'll scar, and blah blah blah...but pick at it I did.
Nothing came of it except for me making it madder and uglier. Plus, I definitely did some damage to the skin on top (again sorry).
It basically looked way worse than when I started.
So, at this point, I couldn't really put anything on it without looking ridiculous and probably hurting like crazy. Ugh.
Then it hit me.
It's basically a wound, right?
Why not slab a little Neosporin on it and see what happens.
So that's what I did.
Then, I am not kidding here, a little while later the swelling and redness started to go down. By evening it was looking even tinier and way less on the crimson side.
A couple of days later...it was gone*.

*Now, I'm not saying it'll work for severe cases and if yours is bad enough you might want to see a derm...but it did the trick for me.
