scary things that can happen when you pop your own pimples

Trying to pop a pimple might make it worse.

If you’re a veteran pimple-popper, you know that going in with the best intentions doesn’t always guarantee optimal results.According to Teens Health, trying to pop a pimple by squeezing or applying pressure might just push pus deeper into your skin. This could prolong the time it takes for a pimple to heal and even make the blemish look more noticeable.Continually pressing, scratching, and squeezing your skin can also irritate surrounding skin, making the entire area look more inflamed and unsightly that before.
