Why You Shouldn’t Pop Your Pimples
Whenever a pitbull rears its ugly white head the best thing you can do is leave it alone pop it and you’ll release a flood of infection that could spawn more pimples
here’s how Pitbulls are bulging bags of oil and bacteria under the skin to have nowhere to go normally these bags contain oil secreting glands called sebaceous glands
you have the most sebaceous glands on your face and scalp oil moves out of the glands and up through your pores to lubricate and waterproof your skin and hair but sometimes dead skin cells and bacteria get inside the pores clogging them up with nowhere to go the oil builds up around the glands like an expanding water balloon it pushes against the skin’s surface which causes redness swelling and pain popping the pimple can relieve the pain but doing so only wins the battle not the war according to dermatologists Michelle Rodriguez at st. Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne squeezing it can result in these contents being pushed into surrounding skin making the problem worse.
it can also lead to infection and temporary darkening of the skin in that area, also squeezing will further irritate your already inflamed skin if the inflammation gets too bad it could lead to scarring .
acne is the most common skin disease according to the National Institute of Health approximately 80% of people ages 11 to 30 suffer from occasional acne outbreaks so what’s the best way to beat the blemishes patients?
if you resist the urge to squeeze pimples will usually resolve over a week or so without scarring .
