Need exam: A minor rash will most likely resolve or significantly improve within 7 days. If not, see a doctor for an exam, it is very difficult to accurately diagnose a rash without good exam, history and follow up. Fortunately, most of them will respond to OTC or prescription cream.

No: Popping pimples, as tempting as it may be, is not good as it increases the likelihood of scarring and spreading of an infection. The latter occurs because as you squeeze, you are not only pushing the contents up through the skin but you are also forcing the contents under the skin as well.

No: It irritates your skin, that's why it itches. No evidence said that lime works for pimples.
