The past few days I noticed three of my pimples on my cheeks had turned dark red like they are blood filled. They are very visible even with makeup on. Today, one popped accidentally and I was trying to squeeze the rest of the blood out when the usual funky whitehead pus came out.

So I'm wondering what this is, what I can do to help them heal, and whether or not it is a good idea to pop the other two I have to speed up the process. I have already applied a lot of BP on those areas, but I don't think that will cut it.

I have these too.....are you using anything specific that makes your skin more sensitive to the sun? I notice this happens to me when I spend more time on the sun....they turn reddish-purple and take forever to heal. Don't pop them, they will drain on their own, and your body will absorb them.

I think that it's just irritated whiteheads. I get whiteheads, but whilst popping them, I don't do so correctly, and it turns red without popping. Have you been sleeping on the side of your face or on your face recently? That could be the reason why :think:
