be very careful. they will be ready to be squeezed only if you see they have that pus filled top. wash your face with warm water or even better do it after a hot shower. cleanse the area with a cotton ball saturated with isopropyl alcohol. wrap your fingers with tissue as there is bacteria under the nails and you will reinfect the site if you use your fingers without any tissue. push down gently around the site until it pops or use a tool thats been disinfected with alcohol. press only until the pus comes out and stop when you see clear liquid or blood. continuing to press if you see liquid or blood will result in a scar. cleanse the area with alcohol and put some neosporin on the site. let it heal up for a bit, doing it at night is better because like any cut on the skin, if you put on cream or something it may get reinfected. after a while then put on BP
