i don't know to what level pimples are ok to pick at. i think it depends on how your skin reacts and if it scars or causes more acne. are you noticing more breakouts when you pop?

i understand not wanting to worry about it during the day, sometimes it'll increase in size. if you're going to pop, i would suggest sterilizing the needle and putting pressure (with tissue, cotton ball, etc) on the area .. until you don't see fluids coming out of the area anymore.
