Popped pimple emergency
I popped a pimple and now there's a giant hole in my face. I'm really freaked out and don't know what to do! How can I make it go away as soon as possible?
Don’t panic girlie ‘cause we’re gonna get your face looking glamorous again in no time. In reality, breaking out is very common for teen girls ‘n’ guys. Pimples will show up when least expected and often refuse to go away for several days. However, the worst thing you can do when a pimple arrives is to pick it. After popping a pimple, your skin will most likely swell, redden or bleed. Next time avoid picking them and use anti-zit creams instead. If you can’t resist the urge, use our pimple-popping guide to get it done right.
After already popping a pimple…
Solution 1: Use Neosporin
Dab Neosporin or another antibacterial ointment on the sensitive area recovering from the pimple. The medicine will kill the bacteria underneath your top layer of skin and will reduce the appearance of scars and scabs.
Solution 2: Wash your face daily
Washing your face will not only heal existing pimples, but also prevent new pimples from forming.
Solution 3: Avoid touching your face
When you touch your face, all of the oils and dirt from your hands transfer onto your face, thus causing more pimples. By touching your face, you will not only prevent existing pimples from healing but also cause new pimples to form. If you don’t give the hole in your face time to heal, it never will. So let it be and trust that your skin will look better soon.
Good luck, girlie!
