    you don't get rid of it.. that's what zits are made off.. it's called puss. there's no cure for acne. but you could try getting facials (even if your a guy) if your really acneic try proactive, see a dermatologist- there are pills, and creams and this thing called a blue light that can help your zits a ton :]

    It is a combination of oil, dirt and sebum, an oily substance secreted by the sebaceous gland. The best way to treat them is to use a benzoyl peroxide cream to dry up the oil. If you feel you must squeeze the zit, then, sterilize a needle with rubbing alcohol and, just, nick it until it pops. Gently (with clean hands!) squeeze with a tissue until it is only clear liquid. Make sure to wash the area because you may have brought up dirt and other stuff that could cause another zit. Resist constant picking. By the way, squeezing a zit won't cause scarring. That's an old wives tale. But if you use any kind of dirty object, on it, or if you squeeze too hard you can cause an infection.

    That stuff is purulent material (pus) which is debris left over from white cells fighting the infection in the skin glands, Treatment consists of hot compresses and local antibiotic such as bacitracin. Avoid popping any zits that are in a triangular region around the nose. These can cause serious infections.

    That would be the white cells that are attacking the bacteria, It is pus.
