More than ever, getting them out of your face could result in leaving nasty scars and spots which make it look worse than a pimple. Hence goes the only option you could do in the meantime.

Dr. Diana Bolotin, the Dermatologist Specialist from The University of      Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, mentions that- “It’s most likely some trigger or change in your lifestyle that’s causing it.”

Most of the common reasons behind the formation of pimples are:

  • Genetics
  • Menstrual cycle 
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Hot and humid climates
  • Using oil-based makeup
  • Consumption of food with excessive fats and oils

While most of the pimples are not contagious, it could lead to skin scarring, which in simpler terms means that the pimple would leave back a nasty scar. This could possibly cause the leftover scar to look out of place on a person’s face.


While homemade medicines and treatment may or may not affect the pimple in terms of permanent removal, it is recommended by skin specialists that proper medical attention is required to counter pimples, without any consequences.

  • Washing your face and rinsing it with mild soap.
  • Making sure that we don’t pop pimples even if it’s urgent.
  • For men, before shaving, the skin should be soaked with shaving cream and should make sure that the shaving blade is sharp and preferably use an electronic trimmer.
  • Not only on the face, but pimples could also come on the neck, back, parts of the arms such as the shoulders. The best remedy is to wear loose clothing, which would allow the skin to breathe.
  • If there are any urgent functions where the removal of pimples is absolutely necessary, it is recommended to visit a dermatologist specialist.
