Hi! It is not good to pop pimples, you get even more pimples and it leaves a scar on your face. I know with pimples on our face its really painful and we always worry, especially gals. there are many tonics available which purify your blood and in turn permanently stop pimples. Earlier I used to have pimples , many many on my face , I used to apply many things, but one day my friend has suggested me a tonic which I took and after that never ever got a single pimple to date. Now my face is crystal clear without even a single pimple. I am so greatful to that person. I don't know whether it is available in your country or not, but i am from India and this is a medicinal tonic made of herbs available in ayurvedic or any herbal stores. You need to reduce eating oil and drink lots of water to avoid pimples. all the very best.

Of course its not good to pop your pimples. The germs that cause your pimple in the first place will accumulate in the pimple and when you pop it it will spread all across your face, causing even more pimples to form. Also, it will cause ugly scars on your face, leading to what some of my friends say - crater face, like the craters on the moon. You don't want a crater face, do you?

I have heard that it is bad to pop them because is spreads the bacteria around your face, but I pop mine anyway. I cannot stand the sight of a big pimple on my face.

Yes it is pretty bad not to mention the blood coming out of it and also the more you pop your pimples the more it multiply because of the bacteria that also comes out of it,Another thing is that a teacher told me that there are also nerves and veins on our face that can be damaged if you pop your pimples if it is in the spot where the vein is.Hope you liked my response,have a nice day.

It is not a good idea to pop pimples.It kinda make your face look rough and bad.If you can help it don't do it.I had pimples for some time now but this aloe vera product that I used helped me.Maybe you can try it.I have forgoten about the name and will look for it for you.

I know you;re not suppose to but, I can't help it. It bothers me so much. I think if I pop, it will be gone sooner. I just have to deal with a little scab. That's better than a red pimple with the white pus just screaming at you every time you look in the mirror. Do other people's pimple bother you? Just curios, because it bothers me...I just want to pop it for them.

Its definitely not a good idea popping them - they could become infected and painful! However to the best of my knowledge nearly everyone I know is guilty of popping them!!

I got pimples for more than ten years now. I do pop them occassionally. I know it is not good as many studies show that, but I do it absent mindedly

I have some pimples but i never pop them. It's not good, because it leaves abig pores on your face. The they said your face will look like a mole house.It makes your face bad and rough. and everytime you pop them, the pores makes bigger and bigger.
