A pimple, zit or spot is a kind of comedo and one of the many results of excess oil getting trapped in the pores. Some of the varieties are pustules or papules. Pimples can be treated by various acne medications prescribed by a physician, or purchased at a pharmacy with a wide variety of treatments.
A pimple is a small pustule or papule. Pimples are small skin lesions or inflammations of the skin – they are sebaceous glands (oil glands) which are infected with bacteria, swell up, and then fill up with pus.
Pimples are also known as spots or zits .
Zits is a comic strip written by cartoonist Jerry Scott and illustrated by Jim Borgman about the life of Jeremy Duncan, a 16-year-old high school sophomore (previously a 15-year-old for the life of the comic)
Cysts are closed capsule or sac-like structures, typically filled with liquid, semisolid or gaseous material – very much like a blister.
Cysts occur within tissue, and can affect any part of the body. They vary in size from microscopic to the size of some team-sport balls – large cysts can displace internal organs.
Pimple Popping Methods-
1)Wield the right weapon. In most drugstore beauty aisles, you can find the weapon of choice for getting rid of pimple goo: a comedone extractor. To pop your pimple with the extractor, roll it across the pimple while pressing firmly.
2) Go low-tech. Use two cotton swabs instead of your fingers. Wait for the pimple to come to a head, then squeeze with the cotton swabs. Stop squeezing when you see blood and then spot-treat the pimple by applying a tiny bit of hydrocortisone. Make sure you apply it only on the zit.
3) Visit the doctor. Your other option is to let a professional do the popping for you. Having your pimples squished and drained in the doctor’s office is sometimes called “acne surgery.” Your dermatologist may extract your whiteheads and blackheads or — if you have cysts — drain them. Phototherapy (lasers and special lights) can also be used to treat your acne. Your doctor can even inject your pimple with a steroid that should make it go away within a day.
