Anonymous said: Hi! Firstly I'd like to say your blog is amazing and helped me with so much :) Secondly my question, every so often I get what i believe to be a cystic pimple somewhere on my face. About two weeks ago I developed one on my chin, my derma prevents me from being able to leave it alone -_- usually after its popped and healed it doesn't reappear. But this one is HUGE and wont pop! I'm wondering what the doctor could do about this? I've never gone to the doctor for a cyst before so i'm nervous. TY :)

Hello!! Thank you so much, I’m glad it helped you ^.^ I believe the dermatologist performs an extraction to get rid of the pus in the pimple. They numb the area so that you don’t feel anything. They do it in a sterile way so that the infection doesn’t spread around. Then they clean it up and let it heal. If the cyst isn’t too big they might just prescribe you something topical to get rid of it. Hope this helps :)

Why do people say to not pop pimples? I find that when it pop them, they heal faster. Also, I just popped a pimple on my knee. 😧

when you pop a pimple, the infection just goes deeper into the skin, you are only getting rid of the pus that appears white. when you do this, you are welcoming future pimples in the areas surrounding that pimple. also, it is damaging to the skin tissue, which leads to scarring. hope this helps :)

Today’s mental health reminder: a relapse, a sudden series of attacks, a string of awful days, (or whatever your step back may be) does not decrease your value. Take your time, do some self care, reflect on the progress that you have made. You are strong; one step back is nothing when you look at the journey you have already made.

Soooooo a few days ago I mentioned my picking has gotten really bad and since then have been talking to maybe two dozen of you about it via email. I started taking your advice and it’s gotten way better so fast. Anyway, I wrote about it for Teen Vogue, they were really interested in learning more. Thank you to everyone who spoke to me about it — and of course the ones who let me quote them in the piece, you were a dream to talk to about it. Thank you very much, as always. 

Tip.

If you want to cover an open wound with makeup then I’ve found that dabbing a small amount of talcum powder on it creates a kind of artificial scab which can be easily covered with concealer and/or foundation :)
