Help! Has vinegar ruined my face?

Recommended Posts


I wanted to get rid of a pimple so I got some vinegar from a container that was in my house. I also got a Q-Tip.

So, I dabbed the Q-Tip into the vinegar and pressed it firmly against the blemish, and I did this again against the red part of the blemish. Maybe for 1 - 2 minutes.

Anyway, after I was done, the blemish went down.

However, when I feel my face I feel the acne bump (of course) and a little indentation (not sure if it can actually be seen) and then raised skin.

I am worried that I have permanently damaged my skin; I thought vinegar was safe. Will it go away?

It will go away, in time, yes.

There are better things to put on than vinegar though.

I use vinegar like a toner, not really to get rid of zits. Try something else like bp or salyicylic acid on it next time.
