Something I've never understood about zits

Recommended Posts

I don't think the actual pore that is clogged stretches to the size of the pimple but the area around it swells making the zit huge. I'm most likely wrong.

Well as the bacteria and white blood cells crowd and multiply into the pore, there is an expansion effect, as well as the surrounding tissue becoming inflamed and damaged in the process. The pimple wont permanently expand the pore, but has a temporary effect. Your body will eventually heal the cavity and return the pore to its original size.
