Pop It Or Leave It Alone?



This is so ouchie. This is on the very top of his shoulder. He is so good about leaving his acne alone. I don't know about this one though. It is really ripe.

I go back and forth about picking at zits. I believe in using medications to avoid breakouts more than anything. Sometimes people get stuck in a rut where picking zits is how they think they are getting rid of them. It's really sad. On the other hand, draining an abscess is accepted medical practice (with sterile instruments of course). When i was a teen my acne was ten times worse. Even 3 yrs ago it was way worse. Right now my acne is controlled by medication. I feel lucky. It's nice that you are so proactive with your son and are getting him the medical attention that he needs. You are a good mom! I am the proud mother of a 16 yr old. I took her to a dermatologist as soon as I saw one zit on her face. Now she is on amoxicillin and tazorac. I remind her every single morning and evening to take her pills so I know what it is like to be a protective parent.
