Blackheads That Pop But Keep Coming Back
Popping pimples: Blood tinged or clear fluid often will be produced any time the skin is wounded, particularly by 'squeezing' a pimple. Often this process is over-exuberant and damages surrounding tissue as well, which can lead to prominent scarring. Try to find a skin care regimen that doesnt rely on squeezing - this will minimize your long-term scarring. ...Read more
The blister on my heel pop said there's pus coming out of it what do I do to keep from getting infected?
If there is pus...: It already is infected. It needs to be drained and cleaned for the infection to go away. If it spreads into the deeper tissue, you will need to take an antibiotic to get rid of it. Use warm water soaks with some epsom salts, dish soap, or even a splash of vinegar (most bacteria aren't that tolerant of an acid environment). Keep the pus draining out of the hole that's already there. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Epidermal cyst: If its a classic pimple, then after squeezing it it should not really accumulate. If it keeps accumulating it could be an epidermal inclusion cyst. I would check with a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon and have them take a look at it. In the meantime, don't squeeze it and use warm compress instead ...Read more
What is the solid, yellow, stuff that squeezes out of a zit/black head/whitehead when you pop it? I've seen it on cysts too.

When these glands get blocked by oils and dead skin cells, it results in an acne blemish. If the gland ruptures into the deeper tissues it can result in the growth of a cyst containing the same material known as a sebaceous cyst. ...Read more

I have bumps on my head that fill up with puss and when i pop it blood come out to what come that be?
8months old 2nd lobe piercings healed partially. But there are bumps around them and sometimes get bigger then pop n bleed with no puss n comes back.
Doctor can check: If the piercing has a friable spot (a spot that is not healing well, and is easy to start bleeding when irritated), that spot could bleed if one tries to put in or take out an earring. Bumps can also form if there is infection in the skin, or an allergic reaction to the earring's material. A primary care doctor or dermatologist can take a look. It's good to show the doctor an unbroken, new bump. ...Read more
