    I squeezed the hell outta my marks

    Okay I went really close to a mirror a few nights ago and saw that under my stubborn red marks, there were blackheads. I squeezed it all out, and the next morning those areas were dark dark dark dark. Will this heal just like a scab? Its scabbing, I hope thats a good sign. This is what I did to my face...not that the marks werent there before but I guess that I traumatized them and injured them. They are my my mouth, and brown according to the digital camera.

    Wow...you're really pretty, I hope things work out. In the mean time just let makeup be your best friend and hang tight til they go away.

    you should NEVER squeeze..... shame on you!:P nah, I know it's tempting but I just tell myself how much worse I will look if I start picking. What medications are you using? it doesn't look like you have a "mask" on. I think you look great!

    Hello Angela,
    ____I'm an old man of 68, so I'm not flirting when I say you're much too pretty to have such blemishes. I too had a lot of trouble when I was your age. I was in the Marines at 17 when I finally found the following: Do away with soaps, detergents, and face cream. I used to wash with Noxema, used cold creams, dove soap, etc. Nothing worked. In the Marines, there's a hectic rush to shower in the morning, I started to carry only dandruff remover shampoo; I believe Head and Shoulders. It was too much trouble to carry bar soap and all. I loved the lather, so I started bathing and shaving with it as well. Lo and behold, within one week, no new zits, and things started to heal.
    ___ It seems that the top four layers of skin, the epidermis, is dead skin. Unfortunately, it's not very elastic, and it shrinks as it dries, and the pores shrink too. The dandruff shampoo has a zinc or selenium product (depending on brand) that removes the dead layers on your scalp...and for that matter...on your face. After a while, the layers dont shrink up because they're continually being removed. In this manner, the pores don't trap the oils and bacteria. Doing this may just by chance help you,,,,,God bless and care for you,,

    Yeah, I've got the exact same marks, except mine are a little bigger, do they go away?

    Sorry for the repeat post, but do those areas feel different than you're clearer skin? Like is it softer and more tender to touch?

    Those spots feel wrinkly and before they scabbed they felt soft. Hopefully the scab will fall off and it wont be red anymore

    Angela... I think you are very attractive with or without the acne spots. How old are you if you don't mind saying... I am just curious.

    Angela, if your spots really bother you then maybe you could go to a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who does chemical peels? I think you would see results a lot quicker then trying to wait for them to fade naturally. Just a suggestion.

    Re: I squeezed the hell outta my marks

    Hey Angela!
    Your pics are beautiful! If it makes you feel any better, I did the exact same thing last night! I had a somewhat small reddish pimple on my upper cheek, where I never break out by the way, and I gave it a squeeze. Nothin' came out so I squeezed harder...and harder...then it started to bleed. Needless to say this morning there is a really dark area about five times the size of the original zit. Why will I never learn? This isn't the first time. If it's any consolation, I think what you refer to as a scab is dead skin killed by squeezing the "life" out of it so to speak. Is the area kind of hard and dry? From past experience, if I can leave it alone for a couple days, that skin just peels off after new skin forms beneath. Doesn't scar too bad except in the area where the original pimple was. I have my mask on today too and a strategically placed tuft of hair which somewhat hides my picking nightmare if no one gets to close to me. I am so mad at myself today....I was doing so well.

    Re: I squeezed the hell outta my marks

    Hello all,,
    ___I feel I'm invading the young peoples turf, so I'm making this my last post. Before I cleared up, I used to pull this little trick. When I felt a bump under my skin, I would put a piece of adhesive tape on it overnight. If the bump wasn't gone the next morning, then I would pull off the tape and squeeze while it was still moist. I did the same over whitehead bumps and blackheads. It made things easier to get out without bruising the skin. The adhesive on the tape has a zinc product antiseptic that also helps stop infections. Bless all you young people, Oldguy
