How can I treat a single pimple that has grown quite big and has pus and very much inflamed?

Do not touch it! It is a cystic acne and the best way for you to have it treated is to bring your problem to a dermatologist who can assess the acne properly and give you the best solution. Do not try to treat it yourself because it might get worse and the infection might spread to other parts of your face.

Some of my acne would dry up and create reddish scabs, can I scrub these off?

No, you should not scrub these scabs off whether with your fingernails or with a face towel. When you wash your face these scabs will come off when it is ready to come off. If you scrub it off before it’s ready, the more it will leave scars.

There are different types of acne cures and treatments depending on the type of and severity of your acne. Topical solutions are available over-the-counter but there are medications that should be prescribed. There are also systemic and procedural solutions which have to be recommended by a dermatologist or a skin care specialist.
