What happens if blood comes out while popping a pimple?

This is normal! You just broke the skin by popping a pimple, so you will bleed! If you have popped it, try to drain it as much as you can and keep it clean since now you basically have an open wound! Don’t do this, though, because it can cause scars! Any Suggestions here?

    About the blood. When healthy clean blood appears, let it wash out any other bacteria and treat it like a wound. Press gently to stop the bleeding and maybe put a dab of something like bacitracin.

    I have had very oily skin for years and battled all sizes of pimples as well as gone to dermatologists. When I feel one is coming to a head I used the needle dipped in alcohol and gently puncture the pus. Do keep in mind that squeezing the wrong way can push the infection down further and make a bigger problem. I have had plenty of practice, but don’t squeeze right on top of the infection. Act like you are milking a cow. Start pushing off to the sides and push under the zit, pushing the harder oil plug moving up and out. It doesn’t cause scars. What does cause scars for me, is leaving the infection for a long period time and letting it get bigger and bigger. Keep your skin clean. I have found that Erno Laszlo (expensive) but it is the best for chronically oily skin problems.

    When you pop a pimple and blood comes out before the puss has come out, then it’s not ready to be popped and you need to leave it alone. If blood comes out after the puss, then it means all the puss is out of the pimple and just let it be s… More:

    It depends on your skin! I sometimes pop pimples and I have NO scars what so ever =]!Some people say putting tooth paste on your popped pimples help!!!but I can tell you it stings so badly!Basically, just make sure that you wash that spot and make sure that there are no infections or puss build-up! And if there is a scar, it might just look like a dark spot on your skin!!!depends how big the pimple was and how clear your skin is already!Wash it with warm water =]Good luck~
