No, but it shouldn't be there in the first place-pus either comes from a picked zit or othere skin infections, or if it's coming from a cut, the cut's infected. Basically, DONT GO AROUND POPPING ZITS

Sometimes Toothpaste can work...It dries out the zit and depending on your skin type it can shrink nit. I tried it once and for me it made the slightest difference, however it did sorta help.

Is it bad to pop a pimple?

It is very bad to pop a pimple. If you're going to do it, you must have washed your hands thoroughly and washed the area in which you will pop the zit. Then you should moisturize the area of the zit, and don't rinse whatever you put on off. Pus will come out, and make sure to clean it off your skin. Be careful- popping might result in a scar. Actually, always results in a scar. If it is not necessary, just stay away from the entire process. Sometimes acne treatments take four to eight weeks to see a difference, which make you inclined to pop your zits. Again, only do it if it is necessary.

Is it good or bad to pop zits?

Its bad because if you pop it then the mark will stay there and it will later become a scar. After couple of weeks, under your skin will be red from the area of which you popped it. So never pop or squeeze a zit or pimple. If you want them to go away simply just wash your face with soap and water and try not to touch your face a lot because when you touch your face constantly its filled with germs and that will go into your skin and that will also cause more germs and dirt on your face. And eventually it will go away.

What is a blind zit?

A Blind Zit can be a fairly large or fairly small pimple that has been stored far beneath the skin.These types of zits are not easily popped because there is a layer of skin blocking it, which is usually the cause of the large bump.Unless the zit rises to the surface, you can use a needle to poke into the middle of the zit to reach the pocket. However, I highly recommend not using this method to get rid of the zit.How to get rid of the Blind Pimple:My own personal way of getting rid of blind pimples is by NOT POPPING THE ZIT. Under any circumstances, do not pop this zit. It will only cause scarring and pain.Freeze an ice pack in the freezer and every night, take the ice pack out and place it on the zit when you are sleeping. The cold will help decrease swelling and make the zit smaller.After a while, you might be able to pluck off the top and squeeze the blood out. (Sometimes, blood is all you will get so don't pick too much. Just take the blood out to relieve the pressure.) IMMEDIATELY wash your face after removing the blood. Continue to use the ice pack until the pimple is completely gone.How to pop the zit safely:If you wish to pop your zit due to personal reasons, do the complete opposite from my method. Use a hot pack every night and place it on the zit while you sleep.After a few nights, see if the zit has risen to the surface. If it has, simply pluck off the top and squeeze the zit out.Some cons about using this method is you will have scarring and there may be a lot of bleeding. Also, when you pop the zit, it might hurt!(ZPT) Zit Popping Tip:When popping zits, use your knuckles instead of using your finger tips. This will prevent the fingernail indents and prevent a scar.

Yesterday I popped a zit and now skin is growing over it. I know this is a sign of healing and that this is better than it scabbing over but does anyone know any ways to hurry it up.?

Leave it alone, the skin takes its own time to heal. If you can get some paw-paw ointment that may help. Go to a Health Food shop.

Pop a zit?

Don't pop zits! Picking at your skin is never a good thing. Try a product designed to target blemishes. I'm a fan of Bremenn Lab's Emergency Zit Stick. You just apply it to the zit and it helps minimize the redness and swelling on contact. It's a lifesaver, I keep mine in my purse at all times!

Does popping zits give you more zits?

Yes. Let me enlighten you. When you pop a zit, it often tends to pop to the outside of your body, crashing into the mirror, something like that. But sometimes, the way you pop it, makes it pop from the inside, and makes the pus contaminate other areas of your skin, and that will make other zits to appear.
