Pimples are a naturally occurring phenomenon that can inhabit any part of your body at random, sometimes in clusters and other times in lone specks. Some people are more susceptible to it and are constantly attacked by recurrences while others remain relatively safe.

Sometimes a change in environment may trigger their appearance brought on by a change in geographical location or simply a change in weather. The hormonal changes at puberty might also be involved in bringing about an onset.

Some people think acne and pimples are the same thing. They are not. A pimple is a hard, inflamed spot on your skin while acne is a broader term; a skin disease in which hair follicles are clogged with dead skin and sebum (skin oil) to create pimples.

Over time the scar may fade, but would it not have been easier to let the pimple go away on its own and not leave an indelible mark.

Pimple popping can aggravate the pore and the surrounding tissue resulting in greater inflammation than before. Quite often, the pimple might return with a vengeance and even if it doesn’t the pore leaves a mark that sometimes looks worse than the pimple did.

Once you pop it or scratch it off, it might start bleeding. Our skin is home to an eclectic range of bacteria, not to mention what we carry to it from our dirty hands. As white blood cells accumulate to the spot to fight of the invading bacteria, you will notice an increasingly…
