A pimple is the outcome of a blockage of a pore in the skin. It can be a papule, a solid elevation of skin with no fluid that is visible, or a pustule, a solid elevation of skin which contains necrotic inflammatory cell material.

Causes

Within the pore contains sebaceous glands, tiny glands inside the skin that give off oily matter called sebum. As the outer layer of skin continually sheds, dead skin cells that are left behind will mesh together by the waxy material. This will cause a blockage within the pore, especially if the skin changes thickness during adolescence. The tiny glands inside the skin will make more sebum that will build up in back of the blockage, and this waxy material will harbour several bacteria.

Treatment

Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid are two common over-the-counter medications that are helpful in treating pimples. They work to help the skin slough off faster, which will help to get rid of the bacteria easier. Prescription medication such as isotretinoin helps to prevent pimples. Although never medically recommended, popping pimples has been proven to be a popular method used in destroying the pimple. Popping can be done by applying pressure to both sides of the pimple and pressing until the fluid is released. The result is an unclogged pore.
