Don't pop pimples: Scarring is the result of improper squeezing of pimples. These will be permanent and may be difficult to mask. You cannot squeeze an infected site without risk of spreading infection or damaging the skin, leading to pock marks that are permanent. Get a dermatologic consultation and skin care program that works. ...Read more

Lymphangitis or skin: inflammation. The red lesion going up the arm is the area of inflammation spreading upward via the lymph vessels. If the lesion is itchy, this could be related to an insect bite, but if painful, it is most likely a skin infection and evaluation is indicated. Warm compresses to the area every 2-3 hours for 10 minutes may be helpful, but oral antibiotics may be indicated ...Read more

I squeezed a pimple 2 months ago now I have a raised red pink scar and look like a pimple it self! What is that? It will be gone?

Hypertrophic scar?: Likely it is just a hypertrophic scar, which are raised scars that do not grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound and may reduce over time. The other possibility
is that it is a keloid. Keloids are often bigger than the original wound and can also continue to grow and cause significant disfiguration. Don't continue to traumatize the area and get a dermatologist to look at it for treatment ...Read more

Bartholin's Gland: Either that or the cowper's gland has become blocked and turned into a cyst that has become infected. Your fp should be able to treat you with antibiotics as a good first try. If that doesn't take care of it, then you may need to be referred to a gyn for surgical removal. ...Read more

I have pink red pimple type spot in my testicle which is itching and it is spereading.

See answer: I am making assumption that you are referring to the scrotal sac and not the actual testicle. If true, most common cause of what you describe would be an inflamed/infected hair follicle/sebaceous cyst possibly aggravated by attempts at squeezing to express its contents which can lead to a spreading cellulitis or abscess. Good hygiene and local heat may resolve problem. If worsens, needs antibiotic. ...Read more
