I tend to pick my skin bumps. What should I do?

Skin Picking. In some cases, infection may develop in areas that have been picked. If skin is red, warm, and tender, it is may be infected, and you should take extra precautions to keep the area clean. If this warm, red, and tender area does not heal quickly, or if it spreads from its initial location, you should seek medical treatment. If left untreated, infections may lead to a larger medical concern.
