It can be quite difficult to leave a pimple on your face and resist the temptation of popping it but as it turns out there is a part of your body you should never touch a pimple.
While popping a pimple is not the ideal way to treat the blemish,there is a time for pimple popping. It’s a process of patience and if you do it too soon, you will be left with your skin even more irritated and red, and no one wants that. But no matter the timing, experts ate of the opinion that there is one area you should do all you can to avoid when it comes to eradicating acne by popping.
Whatever you do, never pop a pimple in the area known as the “danger triangle,” a region which reaches from the corners of your mouth to the bridge of your nose. The reason why experts believe you should avoid popping a pimple in this region is because of the high infection risk, which is significantly higher in this area due to a concentration of veins which lead back to the cavernous sinus region of your brain.
If you happen to have a serious skin infection in this area that went untreated, and then subsequently tracked back to the brain, it could theoretically prove very dangerous and maybe even fatal.
Any infection that you may have from a popped pimple in this region can be easily treated with antibiotics, so if you suspect you may be developing one, there is no reason to fret. The signs of infection to look out for include redness, swelling, drainage, bleeding, and continued development of pus.
If you notice that any of these symptoms persist, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Also know that a good way for you to keep your skin clear is to avoid certain foods and change your bedding regularly.
