I admit it, I'm one of those people who pops pimples.
I know it's not recommended. The correct way to treat a pimple is to allow it to drain by itself. Doctors also use a sterile needle to make a hole and gently drain large pimples. But I don't have the patience to wait for a pimple to drain. I have to pop it and remove all the pus when it matures. I just can't stand the idea of bacteria filled pus sitting under my skin. I get a lot of blemishes in the process, but I use spot treatments to fade them later.
My mom thinks that I cause the pus in the first place because I touch pimples a lot. She's probably right. It's such a bad habit!
