    A heads up that dirt from your fingers can force bacteria into your pores and can cause an infection, leaving you with a bigger bump and, even worse, possible scarring. If the zit is deep down and the whitish stuff inside isn't close enough to the surface, you might end up squeezing the acne bacteria back down into your skin .Make sure that there is a full white head on it and cleanse the area with peroxide before popping and never use your bare fingers/nails...Use a gauze , toilet paper etc.. You shouldnt have to put to much pressure on it if it is ready .. When your force it to pop then that is when you can break the skin and you want to avoid this to prevent scarring. If If the pimple is deep and painful, see a dermatologist. Tell him it's very important . He can inject it with cortisone, which should eliminate the redness and swelling within a few hours.

    Dry and/or greasy skin due to poor oil composition of the skin. Thick greasy oils clog pores, lack of oil leads to dryness and irritation. You need thin oils to moisturize while dissolving and clearing gunk in your poors. Try fish oil or seafood. 2 tsp fish oil a day or 4 servings of seafood a week. Stick it out for at least 2 months; it will take a long time to replace all your oil. Any effect after 1-2 days is temporary or random; so even if it makes you break out a little at first, you haven't given it a full try yet.

    In the short term you can wash and moisturize well, but that will only go so far. Plus excessive washing can be drying and excessive moisturizing can be clogging. Use a small amount of a light moisturizer, made with oil not jelly or grease. Often that means soybean oil or mineral oil. Mineral oil means mined from the ground. So soybean oil is usually better, though mineral oil won't cause too much harm. Clean with soap and water, not a harsh acne cleanser. Even then they only work so well. So you really need the seafood.

    Antibiotics aren't really good for bacteria long term, they'll come back in force after. Short term they may help. After you get off them find some kefir with acidophilus listed first or 2nd to replace the friendly bacteria they destroyed. Studies show less illness when you have these bacteria, even outside the stomach in places such as the lungs and elsewhere. You want friendly bacteria to fill the void when the antibiotics stop, not harmful ones.

    In the short term you might also try 100,000+ iu retinol vitamin A (a megadose, and too much for normal use) or one of the acne drugs that is similar to retinol vitamin A. It's some minor harm to your organs, but it helps against bacteria on your skin. At least it doesn't have the other long term drawbacks to your skin that antibiotics and many scrubs do.

    If you would like to learn how to treat your acne permanently and regain your health and wellbeing, without drugs, without typical acne treatments, and without any side effects, then this will be the most important letter you will ever read.

    Short answer= No

    long answer= when you pop acne you open that pore and empty it. Popping acne may led to a scar or an iffection, but not a permanent crater

    You shouldn't pop your acne because it would become a black scar that looks like a dot and if you pop enough you may be able to connect the dots. So just used the oldest remedy in the book and use toothpaste.

    more than likely not as long as you keep your face clean. You should only pop pimples that have white heads(they are very hard to avoid popping) if you try to pop a red pimple it will stay on your face longer but will eventually heal over time, it you leave them alone they will heal faster.

    it will usually close up if you leave it alone. But try not to pick and pop your pimples too much or your face will end up with permanent scarring.

    Sometimes it can be. Your nails have bacteria in them. Never pop pimples with your finger it will make the problem worse.

    No, it will heal up. I used to put peroxide on the spot to close it up quicker, you could try this too if you want to.
