What Happens When You Pop That Pimple? Dermatologist Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta Has The Answer

There are many different types of acne, and knowing which one you have is crucial in treating it

Acne is a common skin problem faced by many people worldwide. The process of concealing them with makeup or other products could be quite overwhelming. However, many people also have a habit of pricking the acne or just bursting it to get rid of it. However, that only ends up harming the skin. Dermatologist Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta has highlighted this very issue in an Instagram post. She asked her followers, “Wondering how to pop a pimple correctly?,” and went on to say that bursting acne isn't a good idea.

The dermatologist then revealed that this could lead to a series of inflammatory responses in the skin. She explained, “If you burst acne, it can lead to more inflammation and a painful series of more acne on the skin.” She also added, “Popping pimples will not make the bumps go away. It can worsen the condition, increase swelling or redness, and may lead to a painful infection.”

Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta advised her followers to see a doctor if they had acne and treat it in a medically-safe environment.
