PIMPLES: IS IT DANGEROUS TO POP ZITS?

Common sense is the measure of the possible; it is composed of experience and prevision; it is calculation applied to life.

“Didn’t your mother tell you not to pick at your face?”


We are slaves to what we are addicted and a master to what we control.

For zit popping, it definitely can lead to some complications. Squeezing pimples can actually push the zit causing bacteria farther into the skin, causing more redness and swelling. It is also the most common cause of acne scarring.

To see what is in front of one's nose requires a constant struggle.

There is one more deadly complication from zit popping, which is called cavernous sinus thrombosis, a blood clot in the sinus cavity that runs between the sphenoid bone, the large bone at the base of the skull, and temporal bone located near the temple. The real danger zone for zit popping is an area that some people refer to as the triangle of death, an area stretching from the bridge of the nose to the corner of the mouth to the width of the jaw. The veins in this area drain into the cavernous sinus and any severe infection in this area can cause cavernous sinus thrombosis. Squeezing zits in this part of your face can cause an infection and start this dangerous process.

Common sense always speaks too late. Common sense is the guy who tells you ought to have had your brakes relined last week before you smashed a front end this week. Common sense is the Monday morning quarterback who could have won the ball game if he had been on the team. But he never is. He's high up in the stands with a flask on his hip. Common sense is the little man in a gray suit who never makes a mistake in addition. But it's always somebody else's money he's adding up.

Seek medical attention to the zits and don't pimp pop the pimples.
