hell no!! if you let that liquid run down your face theres plenty of zit-making bacteria in it that will make 100 zits in its wake as it trails down your face!! i gotta hold this stupid napkin on my face until the pimple finally gets turned off...

Pimples are never supposed to "burst" they are formed in a way that contains the infection in the smallest space possible. You'll need to compress the area for a bit with some gauze or tissue after giving the area a wipe with anti-septic cream or solution or yes, it will spread the infection. Treat pimples exactly for what they are, serious bacterial infections, keep them clean, don't pick at them.

I'm a skin care therapist and the thing I see almost more than anything occuring to people in their 20's is "icepick" scarring from picking blemishes when they were teens. A pimple will last a few days but a scar will last for your entire life, just don't pick or even touch pimples and blackheads.

you never had those fat pimples that when you make even the slightest brush against something it just starts pouring out?

also, the pimple will have to pop eventually or stay a pimple dried up in your pores as gunk so your saying if i get alot of pimples my fate is sealed and im gonna have a million scars when they pop?

The reason they get red and pustular is because the body is breaking down all of the bacteria and such that was in there. The gunk you're probably referring to is the pus and which is just a build up of white blood cells which are doing the fighting. The body just breaks them down when the area is healed, nothing remains in the follicle after the pustule has "dried up"
You won't 100% get scarring but there is a high risk. By putting any pressure onto follicular infection, suh as during squeezing, some of the nasty stuff inside comes out but some of it can rupture down into the skin as well, causing damage and possibly leading to abscesses and cysts, which are far nastier than any pimple you will ever see, haha.

Sounds like she knows her ****, but if u read his post he says he usually leaves them alone this one just popped when he brushed against it, it think I learned more about zits in the last 10 minutes then I have my whole life.. Weird post but very informative.. I'm new so I'm sure this ins'y the strangest post ever..

i can make some strange nasty posts ^_^. i just haven't because mfk seems to be an environment on the mature spectrum.

but this is a real life problem... really though, Addikted is right. i already have a few good scars from the past so i never pop zits anymore.

how do you explain the black pores in my nose where the hair grows out?? how do i get rid of that?? (your exposing my beauty ms. face :()

I pop all of my zits...I have no problem. Whiteheads are the worst. I hate when I have one and then notice it when I get home. Of course I pop it right away when I see it. Again, nothing bad has ever happened, only the great relief of getting rid of the pain forsaken zit.

Blackheads are the build up of dirt and such on the hair follicle or "pore" It sounds like you might have low grade acne if you get lots of pimples and blackheads. If you're really worried about it, you'll need special products that are tailored to your skin but you'll have to go to a skin care therapist or dermatologist to get a skin analysis and a product prescription.

actually, i dont have any pimples now, just this one that popped and of course its stopped now. aside from the black stuff in each hole of my nose its really small but i always wondered what that was. looks like a 5:00 shadow on my nose....

i used to use proactive when i did have an acne problem and it worked fine. no offense but dermys are way too expensive !!

It still makes me shudder that anyone can order and use proactive. It's pretty strong stuff and shouldn't be used by anyone who doesn't have severe acne. If you go to a reputable beauty salon or skin care clinic, they can usually point out a good cleanser to start off with. They can be pricey, I know but well worth the money. I suffered with pretty bad skin for most of my life and then I became a therapist and started using really good quality products and my skin is near on perfect.

doesn't it also have alot to do with diet? like eating too much cheese etc?

perspiration and regular washing?

seaofdreams

It doesn't have as much to do with diet as lots of people believe. It's pretty simple, blackheads are a build up of grime and nasties in the follicle, pimples/whiteheads are blackheads that have closed over and developed an infection. If you use a good cleanser (one that is suited to your skin, no soap, non-comodogenic, properly cleanses your skin without stripping it of moisture) twice a day and exfoliate once a week with an exfoliant that follows the same guidlines as above, your skin will clear up.

i don't know what comodogenic, or exfoliate means.

i thought it had lots to do with your bodily oils and eating too many oily foods that excrete through your pours and greasy faces = pimples because thats how things get trapped and infected in the first place. right?

some people never use cleansers and have perfect skin. god never intended us to all buy cleansers right? imo its an accessory at best. unless some1 has Acne and really needs one as you said.

actually, my brother has plenty of acne and he uses proactive and he said it doesn't even work. heres how he described it to our mom "its like a curse like shaving when u use proactive because i had a little bit of zits before and i used it and it went away but if i stop then i get a BILLION zits the next day like they FORCED me to buy more and more and never stop using it!!" LOL that was our daily gripe in the car going to school:ROFL:. he still has acne and hes 20

The amount of oil your skin excretes is determined by genetic factors. The oil that is on your skin is made by glands inside your follicles to protect your skin, it has nothing to do with the oil you consume from foods. Yes some people never use cleansers and have nice skin but you're not one of these people and you asked me for advice so I am telling you everything I can.

I spent two years studying every aspect of the skin, right down to the molecular level, I am telling you everything I know that can help you out If you don't wish to take my advice, that's okay, sometimes skin problems clear up with age, until you reach 35 and you get a whole bunch of new problems, haha.

i remember when I was in the philippines i fell asleep and my one arm acidentally went out from underneath the mosq netting little buggers there dont make the whining wing noise our helicopters do here. when I woke up the next morning my arm was covered with these little red dots. 2 days later they were not dots but the most massive amount of welts i had a killer reaction to them.

On the flight back to canada on cathay pacific, I had the stewardess bring me some good brandy and as I lanced the infected boils i made sure to have a brandy bath on the boils stung like all get up and I must certainly have smelt very interesting but the brandy kept any blood to a minimum

Retuks
06-28-2009, 6:51 AM
i hope you went to the bathroom to apply that brandy. lol if you just splashed it on your arm the stewardess musta thought you were a loony. haha

doesn't consuming alcohol slow bloodflow too? it does alot of life saving things when your drunk apparently. even in vehicle accidents, the drunk always seems to live... and it also keeps you from freezing quickly in cold scenarios.

but on holidays if EVERYBODY got drunk and drove home, then everybody would crash and nobody would die! (according to my twisted theory)

imagine cutting your index finger to the joint with a seraded blade... or using a Machete to climb a jungle hill and slipping down the handle severing all the tendons in your fingers... or getting hit in the forehead with shrapnel while wearing a gas mask... or having a piece of rebar go through your bicep after falling off a demo'd bridge... now those dont stop bleeding.

all things that have happened to me or ive seen personally.

sounds like your low on iron, and your blood just wont clot that quick.

For everyones info, if you cut yourself and need to stop the bleeding, use tobacco if you have some nearby. It is going to sting like hell but the bleeding will stop almost immediately. It causes vasoconstriction at the immediate site, thus stops bleeding. - FM

Haha it does seem that way but when you consume alcohol it actually increases your blood flow because it thins out your blood, the reason why people who get in car accidents when drunk and survive as opposed to people who are not is because the drunk peoples bodies are more relaxed and dont tense up on impact, they just go with the flow and bounce around lol.. As far as drinking to get warm in a freezing situation its one of the worse things you can do, you feel like its making you warm but alcohol actually makes you lose body heat faster.. But if ur ever gonna get in a bad car wreck might as well be drunk.. haha.

I cut my index finger to the bone with a seraded blade - Opening a pill box tryna saw off the plastic. LOL (15 years old)

When i was 17 my friend and i was trail blazing and being a dumb ninja he tried to slice a mosquito that was flying his leg, he swung and missed and he hit me square on the knee. the wound was to the bone there also... had no school for the rest of the year.

the rest of that stuff seems to be middle eastern stories of duty. main reason i never joined the reserves... my cousin is going back out to iraq cause he wants to :screwy:. he says he enjoys volunteering to go back... and hes got very similar stories like how his Humvee got blown up over night.

ive been shot in the butt, fell and chipped my tooth, and ran home when i was living in cali. that seemed like it stopped bleeding alot quicker than my zit. LOL. i got put up pics on my myspace of the scar but tom deleted it and said it was "abuse/porn violation" or whatever... even my machete wound..
