To Squeeze or Not to Squeeze?
If you have developed a pimple, the last thing in the world you want to do is to touch it and squeeze it. You are doing this hoping to release its contents so it flows out externally and you can wash it away. That can happen sometimes. But what can also happen is that the inflammatory stuff that is in that little cyst can spread into the skin at deeper levels. And that then causes a larger more inflamed area. Sometimes I see this in my clinic, and we have to inject people with cortisone.
So keep your hands away from your face and Don’t Squeeze.
