No, don't pop them!: If the area involved totals over 2sq inches, you should see a doctor for possible antibiotic to avoid infection. Antibiotic ointments are also OTC — ask pharmacist.

With care: As long as your bacon has not been cross-contaminated with trace amounts of gluten, you should be fine.

If that's unacceptable, an allergist may be able to identify a specific food additive common to those foods that is triggering your hives. Every hives sufferer has different triggers, unfortunately. ...Read more

We age every day: Grilling bacon for a whole year will age one's skin a whole year. Whether one's skin will look MORE than a year older in that time is anyone's guess. The toxins in vaporized food and smoke have a small effect compared to smoking tobacco or other substances. Hopefully, the grill's exhaust vent powerfully sucks the toxins away. For most people, sunshine damages skin more than grilling will. ...Read more

If they don't go away or get worse, see your doctor. ...Read more

Iv eaten smoked bacon that was microwaved less than half the right microwaving time would worms come from eating it, and should I take peptobismol?
