Why You Should Never Pop Pimples

Acne is one of the most common skin issues seen in dermatology, and many patients make the mistake of popping these lesions as they develop on their skin. Watch this video to learn why your dermatologist tells you not to pop your pimples.

A pimple is a pore clogged with skin cells and oil. You're better off leaving whiteheads alone because popping them can lead to problems like more pimples, an infection, or temporary skin darkening in the area. Additionally, squeezing a pimple can further inflame your skin and potentially cause scarring. Instead of popping, dermatologists recommend that you practice patience and let pimples resolve on their own.
