Popping a Pimple: Should You or Shouldn't You?
Pimples occur when pores in the skin become clogged with oil, dead skin cells,
Popping a pimple can cause the bacteria and pus inside to spread, leading to more pimples and even scarring. It can also cause inflammation and make the pimple take longer to heal.
Instead of popping your pimples, it is recommended to keep your skin clean and avoid touching your face.
