Leave them Alone: I am sure it does not surprise you that physicians are very upset at patients who pop pimples, squeeze lesions or sores and then expect treatment to fix the scarring and damage done to the skin when all humans know that popping zits is a 'no no' from a physician's perspective.

I would also eat a reasonable diet and minimize exposure to skin irritants! stay safe! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

This is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away.
