What is the clear fluid when you pop?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes, when I pop a pustule, as well as blood and pus, a clear fluid leaks out of the wound. What is the clear fluid? Lymph?

I've never heard the clear fluid called lymph. :think: That's a new one to me! But I just googled it, yep lymph is the right work! LOL

Lymph: Anatomy, Physiology. a clear yellowish, slightly alkaline, coagulable fluid, containing white blood cells in a liquid resembling blood plasma, that is derived from the tissues of the body and conveyed to the bloodstream by the lymphatic vessels.

P.S. I've always called it "tissue juice". Yes, I know, very scientifical! HAHA
