Firmness after popping a pimple
There is inflammation in the skin in this area. It could represent an infection of simple a reaction to the trauma. If it doesn't settle down in a few days, go to see a doctor. I don't think permanent damage has been created. It is usually best not to manipulate a pimple this aggressively.
