Pimples: Typically you should not "pop" your pimples. This allows bacteria to enter the break in the skin and increase chances of infection. If you must pop a pimple, sterilized the area with rubbing alcohol, lance the pimple at the base with a sterile needle and push out the pus. Cover the area with a bandage and possibly neosporin to prevent infection. Agree! garrett - good advice!
