Post is it good to squezze pores when no signs are there?

i want to make sure im not doing more harm then good. by my nose area i would get like alot of white stuff in my pores that you cant see, but i know would be time it got clogged and it puffed up alot and all. so from then on like every couple weeks i squezze in that area to remove the stuff is this okay? nothing seems to really happen just a little red for a hour then gone. but i just dont want for that clogged pore to happen again

I have the same thing! You can't really see anything, but when you do squeeze, the white pus comes out. If anyone has suggestions, please let us know!

Ummmm I would say don't squeeze...especially in each of your cases where it sounds like there is NO need to (you can't see anything). Squeezing your pores can damage them, especially if you don't know what your doing...and I think most of us don't know exactly what we're doing Also, naturally, your pores WILL have stuff in them, as your sebaceous glands are always producing oil so there will ALWAYS be something in a pore...a pore that's not producing oil actually, would be problematic!!! Your skin would be reptilian!! So I would rec. just a good cleanser, and maybe to exfoliate once a advice is...don't over-do it...your skin is a fragile, delicate organ (yes, it's the largest organ of the body), and if it's not broke, don't fix it!

try a masque or putting a washcloth soaked in hot water on your face (not too hot!!!)

DO not squeeze at all!!...this will lead to bad news belive me...I know from experience...and i think wut you guys are taking about everyone can do. If you squeeze your nose puss will come out of the pores...dont know y but I think everyone can do it.

Hi guys! I have the white stuff too. Sometimes I do squeeze but I found out that it can cause damage to the pore and also cause those little red busted capalaries(?).Immediately after your shower, pat your face dry, then apply those face and nose pore strips. They have several brands out now. This works good for me.
