    Squeeze your spots, according to Dr Pimple Popper

    Squeeze your spots, according to Dr Pimple Popper

    Because if you're going to do it, you need to do it right

    We all know dermatologists and skin experts say not to pop pimples. But how many of us actually adhere to their advice? If you’re honest with yourself, you’ll admit that there’s been more than one occasion where you’ve popped a pimple at home.

    Thing is, there are a few things you should know before you pinch your fingers over that blemish. Which is why we sat down with the famous Dr Pimple Popper to find out exactly how to pop a pimple at home, safely.

    What is the gunk? And why does it manifest?

    ‘Pus is composed of skin cells, bacteria, and inflammatory cells which are sent there by your immune system to fight off this localised bacterial infection in the skin. It’s also a protein-rich fluid called liquor puris that is usually whitish-yellow, yellow, or sometimes a little yellow brown in colour.’

    Ok, but what are you meant to do once you’ve squeezed it? Should you dab with tissue? Leave to dry?

    ‘Clean the area with alcohol and leave the area alone, don’t keep squeezing it. You may want to apply a cool compress to help minimise the redness and irritation or use an over the counter topical steroid to minimise redness and inflammation.  Usually you know that a pimple has been completely drained if no more pus can be expressed, so if you see a little blood, stop squeezing!

    Once a pimple has been popped, be sure to keep the area clean and let it heal properly to avoid scarring. It will sting a little, but you can disinfect the area with rubbing alcohol after popping.’

    What’s the golden rule to popping pimples at home?

    ‘Let me start off by saying, that I don’t recommend that you pop your own pimples. However, I know that most of you won’t follow this recommendation. So I instead insist, “Know when to POP, and know when to STOP”.

    ‘If you really MUST, you shouldn’t pop anything on your face unless it has come to a white/yellow “head”’, she went on. ‘If the pimple has a head, at that point it is the easiest to extract, with the least risk of scarring because the bump is very superficial to the surface of the skin.’
