Another reason to stop picking

Recommended Posts

Picking along with harming your skin in other ways (harsh washcloths/meds/cleansers) especially if you have severe type acne may cause nodular like acne.

Last week i went to the cosmetologist to look on my 2 huge ass nodules that have been on my face for YEARS (and one smaller one) and he said it was caused by injury to the existing pimple. Ive had really severe acne for like 5 years and i admit i do pick a little but not that much however i did use some otcs that were pretty harsh to my face. About 1-2 years ago i got my face under control by using water only with meds and now i only have very minor breakouts and scars/red marks but the frken nodules are still there and the doctor says its permanent :(

I'm not saying picking alone will cause this but it does certainly increase the chance of making your acne worse. So keep your hands off your face!!! irritation = more acne!!
