*raises hand* My mom got me on it when I was in high school.  She used to corner me in the bathroom and try to pop the really bad ones.  Now I pop them all and sometimes DH’s too when they’re especially bad

Yup, i’m a pimple popper, too!  I shouldn’t because it usually scars. Although, I  think I will take

I do this and I dont know how obsessive you feel about it but I have what is called “dermatillomania”, compulsive skin picking, and before I knew about it it never occurred to me that it was an issue!


Now I am aware of it I try to stop it but sometimes it is hard! I am 22 this year and look like I am 12!!!!

I’ve thought about posting about this before but was too ashamed!  I’m hopeless…and I enjoy it! It stress relieving even as it makes me look bad!  I do it on my upper arms too but I really need to stop!

Hmm, somewhat nice to know there are others – I do this too!  I just can’t leave it on my face if I know popping it will make it look less gross!  I’ll have to try the Neosporin thing too, haven’t done that before.

Yup I do it as well. I usually have pretty clear skins.. but once a month when mother nature calls I’ll break out.. and get a few massive pimples on my face..  I pop them as soon as I notice them.

I’m a pimple popper too!  DH gets big zits on his back, and I pop them for him.  I also pop my whiteheads and blackheads too.  I don’t really get much acne, but when I do, I’m popping!

*raises hand*  I’m one too!  I have an issue popping FI’s because, I usually have pretty clear skin, and I always get pimples the second I spot them!  I’m a fan of the nose pimples! =) haha, ewww

Yes yes and yes and I’ve just come off the Pill and unfortunately my acne has come back and so I have more to pop now.

Unfortunately my acne is cycstic and doesn’t always result in whiteheads, just sore red bumps.  Woe is me *hangs head*

I don’t get much acne (luckily) but when I do, I can’t help but pop them (kind of like I also can’t help picking at scabs).  They always clear up very quickly after popping them though; that’s how I justify it!

Yes but usually only when I get huge ones on my chin. If I don’t pop them they take forever to clear up. I always put neosporin on them after but I will only use the pain relief cream kind not the ointment since the ointments oily.

I know they say that popping causes scarring, but honestly if I leave a pimple to just do it’s thing, it leaves a dark spot after it’s gone for months. If I pop it and clean it really well, it drys up and heals and leaves no marks…. Maybe it is just my skin I don’t know. Who could just leave a giant pimple anyway? Ughhh distracting.

As a kid (10-17ish) I had the WORST skin ever. Like scabs everywhere. It was awful and I hated it. Now I only get a few under my jaw/chin area if I’m really stressed. I don’t even think about them to pop them. Now if only I could rid of this redness in my cheeks!
