Do not pop pimples, or pierce them with a needle. This spreads bacteria under the skin leading to more spots in the same area, delayed healing time and risk of secondary infection. Look for a spot treatment which can be applied precisely to a small area, ByeByeBlemish make one.
If your acne is moderate or severe, see your doctor for a prescription strength acne gel and/or a course of oral antibiotics. Female acne patients may also benefit from taking an anti-androgen contraceptive pill such as Yasmin, which blocks the effects of male hormones on the skin.
Best Wishes, Eloise.
