Should you ever pop a pimple?

acne pimple poping

Popping pimples can cause permanent acne scars, more noticeable acne, more painful acne, and deeper infected severe acne. If you push the contents of a pimple deeper into the skin, you spread the bacteria and increase the inflammation. A better way to calm down a large big pimple is with pimple patches. To clear your acne and prevent the next pimple, you need to use a real anti-acne cream such as MDacne and apply it to your whole face.
