How to Pop a Pimple on Your Nose

How to Pop a Pimple on Your Nose

Overview

Pimples are never attractive, but when they develop a whitehead they draw attention to themselves in the least desirable of ways. The whitehead is the development of pus right beneath the skin. When it appears, it signals that the zit is ready to be popped. Even if the pimple is ready to be popped, there is still a proper procedure needed to get rid of it. Following the right set of rules can reduce your risk of further infections and avoid future outbreaks.

Step 1

Wash your face with warm water and facial soap. Pat dry. This will soften your skin, making it easier to pop your pimple. It will also clean the skin and reduce the risk of oil or other contaminants getting into an open wound and causing infection.

Step 2

Place a piece of tissue over the tips of your index fingers on both hands. This provides a clean surface to come in contact with the zit and prevents oils on your fingers from getting into the pimple.

Step 3

Squeeze the pimple just below the whitehead, using your two index fingers. Avoid using the fingernails, since this can cause damage to your skin. Use either the pads or the fleshy ends of your fingers. After one gentle squeeze, the pimple should pop.

Step 4

Squeeze once more to get any remaining pus out of the pimple.

Step 5

Wipe the pus and any fluid coming from the pimple with a tissue. If you are bleeding, consider placing a bandage over the wound.
