Taking Care of Pimples on Lips

Pimples are small inflamed lesions on the skin. As with acne they often develop as a result of clogged or infected pores on your skin. Sometimes pimples will develop once a whitehead or blackhead becomes infected. If you have pimples you should treat them immediately so that it doesn’t develop into more frequent outbreaks or a serious form of acne. If acne is left untreated then it could lead to major scarring on your skin.

Perhaps one of the most unsightly and uncomfortable areas for pimples is on the lips. They often resemble cold sores and you feel like everyone can notice them. Sometimes they may be big enough that everyone can notice them. However, these pimples can often also make it difficult to eat or talk if they become large enough and painful enough. Therefore, you should focus on treating them right away to improve both your physical and emotional state.

Treating Pimples

Perhaps the best way to treat pimples on the lips is to prevent them from happening in the first place so you can avoid the pain and discomfort they cause. To do this you need to have a regular regimen of cleaning your skin and face so that you can remove the excess particles of dirt and oil that clog your pores and lead to pimple breakouts. The better you skin cleaning regimen, the better you skin health. While these regimens can be long and tedious you will have great benefits as a result.

However if you already have pimples there are things you can do to get rid of them. The best piece of advise when dealing with pimples on the lips is to avoid trying to extract the pus from the pimple yourself. This will often lead to a spreading of the infection and scarring around the area.

To prevent the pimples from spreading you should avoid touching your face as often as possible. By continually touching your face you will be spreading germs around your face and transferring bacteria from your hands which will only increase the severity of the outbreak. In addition, the friction that is caused by touching the pimple will make it close up which should you need to pop it will make it much more difficult and lead to worse scarring.

Preventing Further Outbreaks

Once you have had pimples you will do anything to avoid a further breakout. The easiest way to prevent this from happening is to use cleansers. You will need to find a cleanser that is oil-free and antibacterial in nature. When applying the cleanser be careful not to scrub too hard since your skin needs some oil in order for it to remain healthy. By scrubbing your face too hard you will cause the skin to become dry which leads to more pimple outbreaks and that’s what your trying to avoid.

You should cleanse as deep as possible but be moderate at the same time. Some dermatologists will even recommend that for those with sensitive skin you cleanse with only water and a mild soap such as baby soap. No matter what product you use it is important that you don’t switch cleansers too often since this can lead to skin allergies which will cause problems in addition to your pimples.

Popping Pimples

If you desire to pop your pimples so you can be rid of them as soon as possible then you should be sure you do it under the most sanitary conditions. Only whiteheads and blackheads should be popped but if you are careful you can do the same for pimples. Improper popping of pimples can lead to spread of the infection which leads to more outbreaks and if the needles are not properly sanitized it can lead to a skin infection which can cause additional problems. Always use sterile products and make sure you hands are washed completely both before and after you pop the pimple.
