When Should You Pop A Pimple, Ask a Dermatologist
Greatist featured Dr. Michele Green in “A Dermatologist-Approved Guide to Popping Pimples Safely” where they talk about when you should pop those pimples, and how to best pop them, as well as when to see a dermatologist instead.
Pimple popping is a common past time, so is watching it, considering the likes of Dr. Sandra Lee (aka Dr. Pimple Popper) has 6.2 million YouTube subscribers. However, “dermatologists do not recommend that you pop your own pimple,” says Dr. Michele Green, and “doing it incorrectly can lead to permanent scarring and make you prone to infection.”
So what do you need to know and which ones may require a trip to the dermatologist? And which old tactics to avoid too? For instance don’t try toothpaste, or baking soda and lemon juice, either.
