@Mrs.ChubbyBunny:Yes! Thank you!!!! So many people shame me for it but guess what, the same thing happens! And I have pretty damn clear skin now that I don’t just let them run their course. I’d much rather shove a needle in them and have them clear up within a day or two than have a huge NOTICEABLE bump on my skin for weeks and then have that weird dark spot for a while.

Oh! Another thing… ear pimples! I don’t know if I’m the only one to get them but I usually get one HUGE painful pimple on the inside of my ear during the summer (doc said it has to do with chlorine in pools?). They hurt so bad, but when I’m finally able to pop them (I hear the *pop* in my head..so gross but cool) I feel so accomplished lol

I agree with the dark spots! If I don’t pop them the dark spot takes forever to go away! And omg ear pimples! Good thing I don’t really get those much but my sister used to get them all the time. I think one got infected on her once.

Guilty as charged!!  I have a lovely little blackhead and zit tool that helps you get the annoying ones that don’t give into my popping needs.  Its also good for those nose ones that are so stubborn.  I think you get satisfaction from it because that you can control.  The zits and their random attacks on your face you can’t.

I never actually popped them myself, but then once or twice Fiance tried and popped them (he pops his own!) and I was left with ugly red blotches that definitely took longer to heal than a regular pimple! gross! And then I heard that there is a chance that they could leave a scar! I told him he is never again going to TOUCH them!!! 🙂

I hate it when people tell me to just “leave them alone.”
UM.
NO.

I’m not going to walk around with a ginormous-super-nasty-whitehead chills out on my face.
I pop, then clean.

Also, sometimes they’re just so PAINFUL that I feel like I have no choice but to pop so I can relieve the pressure. Gross, yeah maybe, but I don’t care.

Humph.

@firsttimemom: I know what you mean! They hurt like a mother but it feels real nice when I feel that relief. Haha, the sound is always pretty weird. Cool, but weird. Lol.

I don’t get too many actual pimples anymore but I have blackheads/clogged enlarged pores galore and OH YEAH I pop the heck out of those 🙂 Best feeling ever. I usually either put cream or wash/toner my face afterwards so the empty pore gets medicine in it and doesn’t fill back up.

Blackhead squeezer here. It’s just so satisfying!  My tip is to use the rounded end of a bobby pin as an extraction device 😀 I’m not allowed to go anywhere near SO with a bobby pin in my hand…

I friggen love it and just reading this thread makes me jones. Yes I jones to squeeze stuff.  Like if I see a stranger on the bus with a huge pimple I have a fleeting fantasy to squeeze it for him/her.

 

My Fiance gets them on his back and he is SUCH a whimp!  He will let me do maybe one and thats it and he moans and whines after. Im like “You’re in the Army, you do gruelling physical training, get shot at and you cry over a pimple????”
