STOP: Unless you want to go to medical school and specialize in dermatology you are playing with fire: squeezing and abscess will not only leave you open to deeper infection, but will guarantee scarring and recurrence. STOP SQUEEZING!! ...Read more

Cyst? Pimple?: My guess is that you have a sebaceous cyst which may have become infected. Such cysts are very common, anywhere on the body; occurrence on the penis doesn't mean anything special. Stop squeezing it, which can spread infection and delay healing. See a doctor to check it out. ...Read more

Pimple on cheek big and hard liquid clear stuff comes out but can't seem too get the rest out no white puss but feels like needs a big squeeze?

Warm compresses: A large painful nodular acne lesion should not be squeezed/popped. It is already ruptured under the surface of your skin. You have an infection setting in and you need to let your body deal with it. Squeezing it might spread the infection or make it worse. You can try to apply warm wet compresses (30min at a time) to the site and see if this drains it. See a doc if not resolving in 7 days. ...Read more

There: There is a possibility that she could have molluscum contagiousum which is caused by a wart like virus. They look like little red or flesh colored bumps with a small hole in the middle that occasionally has a white, thick discharge. It commonly affects children and usually goes away within a year without treatment. Picking or squeezing them can cause spreading and/or an infection, so it is not advised. Below I've attached a website with more information about them.

If the spots start to develop on her face, appear to be infected, seem to be worsening, or if you think they are not molluscum, then give her doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more

I sometimes get hard mound pimples on my nose thatbdo not get a head. They hurt and when I squeeze only clear liquid comes out. What should I do?

Do not squeeze: You are likely to make the infection spread by squeezing. Consult this site for home treatment of acne:
http://www. Webmd. Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/acne/acne-vulgaris-home-treatment
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Does PIH mark (small, pinkish in color) left by a squeezed pimple is permanent or will always fade away with time? How long does it take to heal 100%?

Does PIH mark (small, pinkish in color) left by a squeezed pimple is permanent or will always fade away with time? How long does it take to heal 100%?

Depends on you: Most pink marks left by squeezing pimples will go away without scarring. But people vary greatly in their healing types. Those with a lot of pigment in their skin tend to put pigment in scars as well, and that stays forever. Deep pustular acne will scar without any squeezing because of its depth in the skin. ...Read more

In August of 2015 hit the back part of his head really hard and it is still hurting, to the point he wakes up in tears. He has white pimple things all?

It's hard to imagine: That one could have head trauma a year ago, still hurting to the point of tears, and not have had a neurological work up. Skull fracture, concussion, subdural hematoma, etc all should have been excluded by now. Head pain at this point now may not be related to original trauma. It almost sounds like condition now, with "white pimple things", might be shingles. Return to Doc for further eval. ...Read more
