Blind Pimples: What are they and how you can get rid of them.

Blind pimples are a common skin condition that many people experience at some point in their lives.

When you get one of these, you might assume it's just another regular pimple or that it isn't serious enough to worry about. However, blind pimples are different from ordinary acne vulgaris because they don't have an opening to the surface like ordinary pimples do — They're the kind of pimple that's hard to tell if it's ready to pop or not and they usually never get better unless you use a good acne treatment.


In this article we'll go over what blind pimples are, how they form and what can be done to prevent them from happening again in the future!

What is a Blind Pimple?


A blind pimple, also known as Cystic Acne, is a pimple that is underneath the skin. It's one of the most painful types of pimples and can be very frustrating to get rid of.


Since it's underneath your skin and not visible from the outside, you may not even know that you have one until it starts getting bigger or causes pain. If you try squeezing one of these stubborn spots you’ll likely find some resistance as there’s no way for any fluid or pus to escape through your pore leading up to it because it’s completely blocked by dead skin cells!

So popping pimples is a no no!


Why do Blind Pimples Happen?

 

Blind pimples or Cystic Acne are a common problem. They are caused by bacteria, dead skin cells, oil and inflammation.

The follicles that make up the pores in your skin have hair growing out of them. Usually these hairs are smooth and soft, but sometimes they become clogged with oil, dead skin cells or bacteria that cause swelling inside the follicle. This can lead to formation of a whitehead or blackhead on top of your skin's surface (which you know what they look like!).

If this happens deep down inside the pore then no matter how hard you squeeze it won't come out – hence “blind” pimples (since we don't see anything coming out).


What are the symptoms of a blind pimple?

Blind pimples are painful and irritating. The symptoms of a blind pimple include:

Pain
Swelling
Redness on the surrounding skin
Irritation on the surrounding skin


Will Blind Pimples go away on their own?

 

The good news is that this type of pimple usually goes away on its own after a few days.

The bad news is that it will return again and again if you do not deal with it properly. If left untreated, these blind pimples can lead to scars and other skin problems like infections and cysts (Cystic Acne).


Blind pimples can be painful but there are steps you can take to reduce the pain and swelling.


1. Use a warm compress on the pimple to reduce redness and inflammation.


2. Use an ice pack on the pimple to reduce swelling and pain.


3. Avoid squeezing or picking at your pimples as this can increase inflammation, cause scarring, and spread bacteria to other areas of your skin (which will then lead to more pimples).


4. Try using a topical treatment like salicylic acid in addition to your usual skin care routine in order to treat the root cause of your cystic acne instead of just masking it with makeup or creams that contain harsh chemicals that may irritate your skin even more in the long run.

Blind pimples are a skin condition characterized by the appearance of small bumps that do not have any pus in them. The most important thing to remember about blind pimples is that they should not be squeezed at all because this can cause scarring and inflammation.
