Also if someone elses blood touches a popped bleeding pimple would HIV transmit just something I was curious about?

Pustular pimple between the upper middle part of my anal I popped it and water and blood came out of it there is no hole but can it be a fluster?

Anal bleeding: It sounds like a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure. These can be treated at home by keeping the area clean and making sure your bowel movements are soft so as not to put any more pressure on this tissue while it heals.

But, if you continue to bleed or have pain please make an appointment with your medical provider to make sure there is nothing else that needs to be included in your treatment. ...Read more

Pimple near my groin area turned a light shade of grey. Popped it a lot of blood came out. Hurt a lot and pimple got bigger. What can I do to treat it?

See a doc to treat: This is called an abscess. The "definitive" treatment is to get it cut open and drained. They call that an "I and D" (incision and drainage). The doctor might also prescribe antibiotics. In the meanwhile you should do hot soaks on the area. However, you really need to go to your doctor for examination and treatment. ...Read more

Pimple that has thick pus and blood. Sometimes deep. Doesn't heal quickly either. Mostly occurs when stressed. What is it?

Pimple that has thick pus and blood. Sometimes deep. Doesn't heal quickly either. Mostly occurs when stressed. What is it?

Probably exactly: That...sometimes stress can cause severe acne breakouts or intense individual pimples.Sounds like that might be what it is. Do you always get it in the same place? Extra care to your skin-cleansing with a salicylic acid cleanser, and a deep cleanser like a charcoal cleanser several times a week- with the addition of a prescription acne medication may help tame your breakouts. See your doc for an Rx. ...Read more

I popped a pimple on my face, it was only once though will anything happen? Also a tiny dot with little blood came out but will I be ok?

I popped a pimple on my face, it was only once though will anything happen? Also a tiny dot with little blood came out but will I be ok?

Don't Touch: Pimples occur when glands in our skin get blocked and what they secrete collects and causes pressure. The immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling). 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. Gentle cleansing and avoid picking/squeezing lets nature take its course. ...Read more

Leave it alone: Keep it clean and don't pop it any further. When you pop a pimple, you may drive infection deeper in the skin or increase the chance of scarring.

Use a acne med and a good sunscreen (irritated skin or acne-medicated skin can be more sensitive to sun damage). ...Read more
