What are Pimples?
Our skin has a gland called “sebaceous gland” located at the base of the hair follicles under the skin. This gland produces “sebum” which is oily substance to keep our skin and (body) hair smooth. When sebum is over-produced it will block the pores of your skin where pores act as draining spots on your skin. Due to this blockage dead skin cells may not be able to come out when it attempts to drain out. This in turn forms as pimple. The blockage may occur due to dirt and infections which will lead to pimple. At times the pimple might be filled with pus with pain on the spot.
Two types of pimples are blackhead and whitehead pimples. When the dirt, bacteria or the sebum pushes from below skin whitehead is formed. The pimple will pop out with tiny white spots. The blackhead is when the pores break open with sebum which contains skin pigment melanin and turns down into brown or black in color. Pimples are also called as acne.
Treatment for Pimples
As and when a pimple starts to appear, people tend to pull out or try to extract the pimple out which is not advisable. The pimple contains infectious material that will harm the rest of the part of your skin and can lead to multiple acne spots on your face. If you want to pop out a pimple it must be done only under sterile conditions. Even though only the whitehead and blackhead should be removed or extracted. If you see pus-filled red pimple, it should be untouched.
