Pimples are perhaps the most commonly agreed upon living nightmares. They are unpleasant, ugly and painful. And what’s worse than any a regular pimple is a blind pimple! A blind pimple is usually more extreme than any regular pimple for it formulates deep within the skin, closer to the nerves, thereby possessing a higher potential to cause pain.
Just like any other type of pimples, a blind pimple occurs as a result of over-reactive sebaceous glands, that are present under the skin. This causes the production of excess oil, which results in clogged pores. However, a blind pimple, unlike any other common pimple, does not have a white head. This is because it forms within the skin. Pimples of these kinds generally formulate on the nose, behind the ears, basically anywhere on the face for it is more susceptible to dust and pollution. Usually, they are red in color, small in size, and pus-free. Prodding or poking a blind pimple only increases the risk of infection, which is why you may want to avoid it at all costs, despite the obvious temptation.
There are some very simple and basic methods to avoid getting blind pimples at all. Maintaining your hygiene, following a healthy diet, and plenty of sleep and exercise are some easy methods that can go a long way in the prevention of getting blind pimples; and in order to get rid of them faster in case you have them already. There are also some easy-to-follow remedies that can be reproduced at home and are of great aid. Do ensure that you have properly washed the affected area of the skin and patted it dry before using any of the remedies given below.
A warm compress induces more efficient blood circulation. Proper blood circulation produces the optimum conditions for healing by forcing blood to circulate through the pimple’s head. When the head of a blind pimple is forced to open, the infectious fluid that has accumulated within it will come out and after that, the healing begins.
- Dip a soft fabric in hot water and hold it over the blind pimple for a few minutes.
- Keep repeating this process 3-4 times a day so that the blind pimple forms a head.
