AS long as their fully developed and easy to squeeze the puss out, then it's ok. I then advise putting some kind of antiseptic or similar on the wound to help prevent more shit going in there after the wound is fully open. I've used tea tree oil in the past, and it's gold. Make sure you don't have to squeeze them too hard, otherwise, that's how scaring can occur.

Try to keep your hands clean as well, when you're popping. Cause it has oil etc on it and you don't want to get that in there. mayeb if you wash with soap or soemthing before hand it should be ok.

In the past i've used papaw cream as well, to put on afterwards. Which is just like a skin ointment or balm. So that's worked for me in the past. Its important not to force the pimple out though, that's when you get some nasty scars. So don't be tempted until it's ripe

Also, pimples are commonly formed by a hair being trapped under a layer of skin (or something like that ) so it's good to physically exfoliate your skin, by rubbing a relatively coarse material on their (brushes work). To get rid of the dead surface skin blocking the hair from coming up. Although you don't do this once the pimple is formed, only on surfaces where there are no pimples. You shouldn't irratate them. Or you could get some kind of beauty stuff which chemiaclly does it, but i haven't really used that before

So pop when they're ripe and dis-infect the wound and put some kind of balm (healing) on it and it should be pretty good to go and heal almost overnight?
You can try to physcially pull the offending hair (once exposed by popping), our of the folicle as well, just in case.

I totally agree its best to get what ever is causing the infection out as soon as its possible to do so.

The only bad thing if you squeeze for ages and you cant get it out. Thats when they get worse, cause scaring and take longer to go

I've caused scarring on my face I guess I've popped a few too early. Is there any way to repair the scars? Even if the method will take a few years, I would do it to get rid of the scarring.

There might some kind of nuts laser surgery hobo, I'm not really up on all the things they're doing with laser surgery these days, but otherwise no - it's scar tissue for life.

You can do what Brad Pitt does, hobo....get your face peeled. They do it every few months though, but it seems to work pretty good. If I was rich, and my career depended on my looks I would do it too.

If you HAVE to do it, it;s best to wait until it's fully developed and white as hell.

The best way to avoid scarring IMO is not to pop them early because they will just reform, and after you pop it do not keep picking at it. Picking at it WILL cause a scar !!!!!!!!

hmm... i read about popping them when they're "dead" or when they have the white top to it. check out www.acne.org for more info. that's how i got rid of my acne and how to maintain it.

Vitamin E cream rubbed on acne scars gets rid of them, I've used it for only a few days and noticed significant improvement.
