Pimple liquid: That is simply called serum. It is the watery fluid that fills in all body tissue. If red, then blood has mixed with it. If white then it might be sebaceous material from an oil gland.

Yes: Fun question. Toothpaste dries out and pulls off the dead skin layer when you remove it. It exfoliates the skin and removes some of the acne plug. One of the old wives tale which does work; however, there are better ways to zap a zit. In fact, take a look at the zit zapper.

There is no best way: Often times consumers are sold on 'secret' treatments for acne. This is because acne is a difficult problem without a best way to treat all cases. Start with standard otc treatment: salacylic acid wash, benzoyl peroxide and a good moisturizer and if this is not effective make a visit with your primary physician to discuss prescription therapy.

You can't: Acne is a serious chronic non-lifestyle-related illness that's a serious social handicap and likely to be disfiguring. If you are responsible for a young person's health, and you are denying them the benefits of scientific medicine for their acne, you are making a very serious mistake. It is likely to be a source of lifelong regrets / resentment.
