In brief: Likely
Squeezing zits (acne) can inadvertently force lipid and bacteria (contained in the pimple) deeper into the skin and subcutaneous fat.
That may spread the infection and result in a deeper, more painful problem. It is better to spot treat the pimple with a product specially formulated to treat acne.
