Dryed out pimple, top falls off, what to do?

this is the second time that this has happened to me, hopefully it doesnt result in scarring

I was taking a shower, and I had a totally dried out zit come off, and the bacteria was all still inside. so i extremmmely gently pushed it out and it all came out, then the blood came up and a scab will be forming

is this what i should do? Should I have left all the bacteria in there? Because it was exposed...right there, but I am afraid that i will scar, which I have from a fwe of them

I think it was good that you removed the bacteria. When that happens I usually put my finger inside my cheek and slowly push it out while in the shower.

That happened to me just yesterday, actually. I accidentally scratched the side of my face and a hardened pimple just kind of fell off, leaving this not-fully healed gapping hole in the side of my face. I put some anti-biotic cream on it to get rid of any bacteria and then put a bandaid on it. Getting the bacteria out of the wound should help it not to scar...unless it was a really big wound or pimple.
