I popped a large pimple on my face and now I have a cyst-like bump that does not go away. Why?

Squeezing pimples pushes the pus and acne bacteria deeper into the skin. The inflammation in the deeper layer of the skin (Dermis) is frequently healed with a scar causing this long term bumps or depressed acne scars.

Thus - never squeeze your pimples. Nevertheless, Big pimples can be gently drained by using a sterile needle.
