What to do to make the pimple ripen faster


Most people under the age of thirty are prone to acne rashes. In some they are painful, in others they do not cause discomfort.

There are acne of very different types. But in any case, they all spoil the appearance of a person and bring harm. Therefore, many prefer to delete them. Is it possible to crush acne, and if so, how to properly perform this procedure?

Reasons for the appearance

Acne can occur in people of any age. But young people are especially prone to them. Why do rashes occur on the face and body?

This happens for several reasons:

  • Makeup accessories are not washed or replaced on time. Then bacteria accumulate on them, which are superimposed on the face whenever the product is applied (for example, powder or blush).
  • Increased sweating. This happens, for example, due to sports. To protect yourself, it is better to practice in loose clothing made from natural materials.
  • Genetic predisposition. This reason is prevalent in eighty percent of the population suffering from acne.
  • In women, an active rash of acne can be associated with the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, or hormonal imbalance.
  • Tendency to rashes due to an allergic reaction.
  • Climate change, such as a trip to the sea, etc.
  • Stressful situations and lack of sleep leads to an increase in cortisol, which is an acne provocateurs.
  • Inadequate skin hygiene. To protect the body from infections and acne, you need to change bedding twice a month, clean your face daily with special means, remove makeup on time, disinfect the handset, etc.
  • Improper nutrition. The diet should be balanced. It is advisable to reduce the amount of caffeine, dairy products, sweets, soy, peanuts, etc.

What do the doctor's say

Specialists rarely recommend extruding acne. However, categorically they do not prohibit doing this. The thing is that there are different types of acne: some can be crushed, others are not.

In addition, all parts of the body react differently to such a procedure. You also need to know the general rules on how to squeeze acne correctly.

First of all, you need to understand what acne lends itself to safe extrusion.

There are two types of comedones that are not in inflamed form:

  1. Closed. Inside the duct, a formation appears in the pore that does not have direct contact with air, and therefore does not become inflamed. It does not cause pain while in this state. Ripening education takes a long time. Throughout this period, the pimple will look like a bulge on the surface of the skin, without a white head and inflammation. Such acne is not worth squeezing. This will not succeed, but may cause inflammation.
  2. Open. When the formation has advanced to the exit from the duct, it receives contact with the air. In the process of oxidation, a black dot is formed. Such a pimple matures faster and is freed from pus. The pain also passes quickly. It can be squeezed out, but only following all the rules.

Inflamed acne are of the following types:

  1. Papule of superficial type. This red or pink pimple without a white head reaches half a centimeter. It is the result of unsuccessful extrusion or inflammation of the closed comedone. After healing, it leaves no scars.
  2. Papule of the deep type (also called nodular). Its size begins with half a centimeter. Depth they reach up to three centimeters. They cause severe pain and are very visible. It is unrealistic to squeeze them out mechanically. When you try to squeeze out such a pimple, you can create even more inflammation.
  3. Cystic formations. They are located in the deep subcutaneous layer. Cosmetic methods do not remove acne. Mechanical removal leaves scars.
  4. Pustules are called purulent acne. Their size and shape may be different, but their distinguishing feature is a white head with pus. Their shallow location and purulent filling is the reason why it is possible to squeeze out such acne, but the right method.

The face is the first thing people pay attention to when meeting. Therefore, the appearance of acne immediately attracts attention, so they are most often tried to be removed as soon as possible. But is it possible to crush acne on the face?

If the comedone is open, or the papule is superficial, it can be squeezed out.

However, there are areas of the face on which the mechanical removal of acne is prohibited, namely:

  • Nasolabial folds,
  • Labial area.
There is a different arrangement of blood vessels in this area, so squeezing acne can cause serious inflammation and scars.

With white head

A pimple with a white head usually has a black dot, which indicates that it is ripe for extrusion. To remove it correctly, you should observe the complete cleanliness of the face and hands during the procedure and know some more important rules.

If the purulent formation has a superficial shape, it can be squeezed out, observing sterility. However, there is one feature.

If more than five purulent acne is concentrated in one area of ​​the body, their mechanical removal will not bring the desired result.

A large number of acne suggests that under the skin there is an extensive infection, which should be combated with medications and cosmetics.

Acne on the nose often occurs as a result of clogged pores. They can also appear due to acne inflammation. To avoid the formation of pus, you need to take care of clean face skin daily, as well as use means to combat black spots.

Acne on the cheeks, causes and treatment. More details here.

Cystic and deep purulent formations are forbidden to be removed mechanically. Their origin has an internal source, so treatment should also be more extensive.

To do this, you need to contact a dermatologist and follow his prescriptions, as well as observe skin hygiene so as not to provoke inflammation and infection.

The inguinal area of ​​the body is prone to acne inflammation in case of insufficient hygiene or after shaving. Pressing acne on the penis and in the groin area is prohibited.

They can be treated with special acne remedies. It is also necessary to increase personal hygiene. Can be used to wash a decoction of chamomile, calendula.

What are

Is it possible to squeeze a pimple, depending on its type:

  • Subcutaneous does not have a purulent head, and its contents are deep. It looks and feels like a small ball. The internal pimple can become inflamed, as evidenced by its redness.
  • Purulent determined by the presence of a white head. A ripe purulent pimple is ready to be removed, and an unripe one should not be crushed. It’s better to wait until it ripens itself, but you can speed up this process.

How to understand that a pimple is ripe

Before getting rid of an acne, it is important to understand that it is already ripe.

  • Squeezing pus deep beneath the skin will not produce results.
  • In addition, this will lead to severe damage to the integument and even more inflammation, which does not last long.
  • After violent manipulations, scars and visible scars may remain.

There are two true signs, the combination of which will help determine a ripe acne:

Photo: white head formation

  1. The presence of a white head. This indicates that pus and lard, clogged the lumen, went into the surface layer of the skin to the exit.
  2. Lack of inflammation and redness around education.

If a white head appeared, but the redness did not sleep, then you can not touch such a pimple. You need to wait until it finally ripens.

How to speed up

There are situations when you want to urgently get rid of acne.

For faster maturation, many simply steam out the face.

But with inflammation, increased blood circulation from heat only contributes to the spread of infection. From this, an even greater amount of rash appears.

What to do to make the pimple ripen faster will be proven by proven methods.

With the help of pharmacy funds

Pharmacy products can accelerate the maturation of acne or even completely dissolve pus.

At the same time, healing will pass quickly and without complications. And at the place of formation there will be no visible traces.

The most effective remedies are as follows:

  1. tar birch tar has an unpleasant odor, but is capable of causing pus to go outside upon first use. On a small piece of fleece, a little tar should be applied and applied to the inflamed area for 30 minutes. For convenience, you can seal the fleece with a band-aid. If the first time the effect was not as expected, the procedure is repeated,
  2. similarly used Vishnevsky ointment, designed to stretch purulent contents,
  3. ichthyol ointment is applied in the same way, but is kept for 2 hours,

  5. in emergency cases, acne is cauterized with a cotton swab dipped in hydrogen peroxide. You should not often use this tool. It has a detrimental effect on the upper layer of the epidermis, increasing the susceptibility of the skin to infections,
  6. to draw pus from a reddened pimple, sulfuric ointment is used. She is lubricated with a pimple several times during the day. But the best effect is observed, if anointed also at night,
  7. Tea tree oil has anti-inflammatory effect. It helps well if you periodically lubricate them with sore spots throughout the day.

The most effective treatment for a pimple is at the stage of its origin.

The main thing to know is how to spread so that the redness is gone. Some remedies are so strong that they are able to completely remove acne in 2-3 days.

  • some help with aspirin. The tablet must be crushed into powder, add a drop of water and apply the mixture to a pimple,
  • tincture of calendula on alcohol is applied to the inflamed area 2-3 times a day,
  • a good healing effect is cream Boro plus. This Indian herbal preparation is used in beauty salons to accelerate skin healing after various procedures. The cream is spread with a thin layer on the whole face,

  • many use vasoconstrictor drops in the nose to relieve inflammation (Naphthyzinum, Vizinum, Galazolinum). The solution is dripped directly onto the reddened area,
  • locally acne is treated with essential oils (tea tree, rosemary, eucalyptus, pink, wheat germ). To rid the face of redness, need to make a mask of white clay by adding a drop of oil to it,
  • "Dimexide" is also known for its anti-inflammatory effect. One part of the solution is diluted with three parts of pure water and acne is burned with a cotton swab. The product should be used with caution to prevent severe burns,
  • once you can use prednisolone ointment. This is a hormonal drug that resolves internal acne. But it is addictive, so you can’t process more than 3 formations at the same time,
  • a safe method is to apply a slice of aloe leaf to the sore spots. Compresses can be done as many times as you like, there will be no harm from them.

If you want to squeeze

  • A ripe pimple is best removed in the office of a beautician.
  • To get rid of several pimples, a specialist conducts mechanical cleaning. Grease plugs are carefully removed with a special tool - a Uno spoon.

If there is no time to wait until the pimple passes by itself, but you don’t want to go to the doctor, you can squeeze it out.

But do this only when the pimple has matured.

Its white head should be located almost at the exit from the pore, and touching the tubercle should not cause pain.

How to do it right

  • Before squeezing a pimple, you need to thoroughly wash your hands and face with soap.

Photo: Blackhead removal should be done with clean hands.

  • Then treat the skin with the formation and fingers with alcohol or any antiseptic.

Photo: before removal, the skin is treated with an antiseptic

  • If the pimple is dry and small in size, then gently press the side of it with the fingernail so that the shaft comes out.
  • But if its contents are still viscous, then it may not come out to the end. This will lead to repeated inflammation and the appearance of a new acne. To prevent this from happening, a hole is pierced in the pimple with a thin needle, and the contents are squeezed out through it.

Before helping the skin to get out, the needle must be sanitized.

  • The wound also needs to be treated with an antiseptic several times a day until it is delayed.
  • The day after manipulations it is undesirable to apply decorative cosmetics to the face.
  • A compress from a decoction of chamomile and celandine made at night will help soothe the skin.
  • In order to prevent inflammation again, during this period it is necessary to abandon fatty foods, sausages, smoked. Such products stimulate the sebaceous glands.

Proven Methods

If you really want to remove the inflamed pimple, which is highly not recommended, then at least you need to do it correctly.

  • It is necessary to carefully press down the top of the tubercle, pushing it from bottom to top. In order to injure the skin as little as possible, try to squeeze out all the contents with one pressure.

  • To remove pus and inflammation will help "Liniment synthomycin" applied at night. This is an external antibiotic that destroys bacteria and prevents the infection from spreading.

  • Laundry soap and salt on the face, stand for 10 minutes and rinse with water,
  • make a concentrated salt solution and apply compresses,
  • mix yeast with hydrogen peroxide and an aspirin tablet, spread on pimples, wash off after 20 minutes.

It is important to consider the individual characteristics of the body.

  • You need to press close near the border of the acne, pushing it inward as much as possible to remove the root of the formation.

Why do whiteheads appear on my nose? The answer is here.

Is it possible to pierce a pimple with a needle?

Based on the situation, this can be done. Squeeze out a pimple by first piercing it with a needle, possibly if it has no signs of inflammation or a tubercle without redness and does not pass on its own for a long time. This usually applies to subcutaneous. But here you should follow the procedure itself, preparation for it and skin care after extrusion. When piercing a subcutaneous acne, it is important to remember that all subcutaneous fat must be removed from the affected area, this will help to avoid repeated clogging of pores.

Internal painful acne, which often gives a slight redness and swelling, or acne cysts - it is forbidden to pierce with a needle and squeeze. With this procedure, you can bring in an infection that can spread to tissues and even human organs. Extrusion also provokes the formation of large scars. It is best to seek the help of a qualified doctor.

It is possible to pierce with a needle and squeeze out acne after their full maturation. If white plaque has accumulated on the tip of the pimple, touching it does not cause pain or discomfort, or it may seem that it is about to burst, then you can proceed to remove the abscess. The main thing is to remember about all measures of disinfection and sterility in order to avoid unforeseen complications.

You can not pierce and squeeze acne that provoked an infection introduced into the body, fungi and parasites, or diseases such as chickenpox, measles, scabies. With them, any actions with bubbles are strictly prohibited. After all, mechanical damage only helps the pathogen to spread and affect a large area of ​​the skin. Acne caused by allergic reactions is not squeezed out, since it is useless, it is necessary to treat it inside, and not outside.

How to make a puncture?

With any intervention in the skin, it is important to remember - disinfection always takes the first place. It helps prevent negative consequences.

Before removing the acne, it will be necessary to sanitize the instrument, which will be used for the procedure, the surface of the skin, hands and everything that will touch the affected area. You will need:

  • needle,
  • cotton or cotton pads, tampons,
  • an antibacterial agent, for example, alcohol.

First you need to pay attention to whether the pimple is ready for a puncture. If it turns white, you can safely proceed to the procedure. In the event that it is not ripe, it is recommended to postpone the operation for a day or two, otherwise you can get a scar on the face. Dip the needle in alcohol or an antibacterial agent for 10 seconds. Correctly puncture acne not from top to bottom, but horizontally, to get two holes. Try to make a puncture as close to the top of the abscess. Pus should flow out of the holes, you can slightly press, you should not do this from above, because the risk of infection is greater. Gently press on the sides of the bottom of the pimple. After the pus flows out, burn this place, treat it with an antiseptic or salicylic acid.


There is always a risk of complications, even minimal. Effects:

  • infection in the blood,
  • scars on the skin after extrusion,
  • disorders of the epidermis, wounds and cuts,
  • the entry of viruses or other pathogens into the body through the layers of the skin from pus,
  • aggravation of the situation in the treatment of acne and acne.

To reduce the likelihood of deterioration, it is worthwhile to devote more time to preparing for the procedure. Keeping track of hygiene and sterility is a highlight. Remember that it is undesirable to pierce the needle and squeeze out on your own, even if it is a small pimple, do not crush the inflamed. For home facial cleansing, you can pay attention to black spots and purulent abscesses that protruded on the surface of the skin. All the rest should be left for removal by a cosmetologist.
