Drawing Out Pimples
Edema: Generally the clear fluid that leaks is one of two things: either it's edema (swelling) from the trauma of the pressure or it's fluid from inside the cells that have ruptured. Either way it's an indication that you're applying too much pressure to "pop the pimple". It is not generally recommended to squeeze acne. The pressure can actually cause the infection to go deeper or lead to scarring. ...Read more

Positional change.: The veins in the face just as the veins in the rest of the body change in size depending on changes in position as well as changes in levels of hydration and changes in pressure in the chest and abdominal cavity. In the face, the veins decrease with standing and increase with lying down. Straining or laughing increase the the pressure in the chest which can increase the size of the facial veins. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had 3 pimples next to each other then i squeezed and picked them, they became open wound pimples which I've had before but then the outside of the s?
Concerns: Much as it is tempting - please do not pick/squeeze at pimples! If they haven't matured this can cause more irritation and cause more risk for secondary infection. You indicate this has happened before - the open wound may become infected with MRSA. Talk to your doctor for a medical treatment to help you reduce your pimple outbreaks.

No: I am not sure i fully understand your question, but there is not typically any connection between a pimple and the spine. A pimple is a very superficial problem usually involving the dermis and the epidermis, the spine is much deeper than that and is deep to the para spinal muscles and so the two are usually not connected. ...Read more

Asking about acne?: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin (adapalene) gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral contraceptives (for women) and oral antibiotics are options also. If acne is quite severe, a dermatologist may prescribe Accutane. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Scientific Rx: If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks and/or it's on your trunk, get with a mainstream scientific physician who can add prescription-strength meds such as topical Clindamycin and/or a retinoic acid derivative, perhaps something stronger. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Manage them: Acne cannot be cured until it self-cures as you get older. There's no predicting when. I was able to stop treating mine when I was 50. Until then, topical benzoyl peroxide and/or topical retinoic acid are your best friends; about half of acne patients will need to add prescription-strength medication from their physicians. Ignore all "pop" advice about treatments and supposed causes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Keep at bay: While you're a male teen, all we can do is keep them controlled. For the long-term, often a systemic antibiotic is best for most men; your physician can make a recommendation. Over-the-counter drugs fail except for benzoyl peroxide; you may wish to add this. All acne can be controlled nowadays and it's your right. Good luck. ...Read more
The correct answer: Is no, but everyone does it. Sometimes popping them will cause them to burst under the skin and create a cyst-which can last for weeks or more. Blackheads can be removed with a comedone extractor, that you can purchase at a drug store. White heads, usually can be emptied without much pressure. Red or tender pimples should probably be left alone until they "come to a head.". ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Part of puberty.: Due to the changes in hormone levels, skin bacteria, and oil production, most people get pimples with puberty. Acne can continue until mid-20's to mid-30's, so whatever your doctor suggests to control it, keep using it on all acne-prone areas even when your skin is clear. No squeezing, scratching, picking or poking pimples; it not only can leave scars, but it can increase the pimples! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nature: Acne pimples occur when the immune system detects the clump (comedone) of skin cells blocking a pore, trapping oils inside the skin, and also trapping some bacteria. The bacteria and oils leak into the skin, causing a reaction in which the immune system sends white blood cells in to push all of the stuff out of the body. After the pimple ruptures, it heals but imperfectly, leaving little scars. ...Read more
