How to Handle Bleeding Pimples: Tips and Solutions

The age-old tale of pimples—those pesky little blemishes that seem to have a mind of their own. One moment, they're innocently sitting on your skin, and the next, they're causing a scene by oozing blood. But fear not, for there's more to this story than meets the eye.

Pimples don't just start bleeding out of the blue. There's usually a culprit behind the chaos. Perhaps it's the result of vigorous scrubbing or aggressive face washing, irritating the pimple until it cries out in protest. And let's not forget the classic villain: pimple popping. We all know it's a skincare sin, but sometimes the temptation is just too strong.


So, if you find yourself face-to-face with a bleeding pimple, don't panic. We've got a five-step plan to help you regain control of the situation.

1. Apply Pressure:

First things first, apply firm pressure directly to the bleeding pimple for one to two minutes. Grab a tissue or a clean cloth to avoid introducing any additional germs. This should staunch the flow of blood in most cases.

2. Ice It Down:

If the bleeding persists, grab an ice pack or a cold compress. The chill will cause your blood vessels to constrict, slowing the bleeding and calming the storm.

3. Antibiotic Ointment:

Once the bleeding has stopped, dab a bit of antibiotic ointment, like Neosporin, onto the affected area. Not only will this prevent scarring, but it will also ward off any pesky bacteria lurking on your fingers.

4. Patch it Up:

For added protection and healing, cover the pimple with the breakout patch. This will not only prevent further irritation but also allow the ointment to work its magic undisturbed.

5. Seek Professional Help:

If the bleeding persists or recurs, it may be time to call in the cavalry. Schedule an appointment with a dermatologist to rule out any underlying issues and ensure your skin is in tip-top shape.

 

And for those moments when temptation gets the best of you, here's a tip on how to pop a pimple safely: ditch the fingernails and opt for a sterile lancet instead. Gently apply pressure with a cotton swab or your fingers to minimise damage and reduce the risk of scarring. Or better yet, let the Breakout Patch do the heavy lifting for you. These invisible daytime acne patches work wonders, absorbing impurities and preventing you from picking at your skin. It's like having a skincare superhero in your corner, ready to save the day.

So fear not, for with these tips and tricks in your arsenal, you'll be well-equipped to tackle any bleeding pimple that dares to cross your path. Here's to clearer skin and a brighter tomorrow!
