red marks left around pimple after trying to pop something

Recommended Posts

so every time i pop a pimple or blackhead or something (i do so with q tips btw) i'm left with a very noticeable red mark where i was squeezing at that last a week or so and it's so annoying and i'm so confused. i never break the skin but it just happens and gets very dry where it's red. no idea what's happening. am i bruising the skin? does this happen to anyone else? is there anything i can do to heal it faster? i've attached pictures and they're all of different times and a few days after i've tried popping

thanks for your reply! but this isn't PIE or PIH because it completely heals in less than 2 weeks 100% and does not leave any marks behind. unless there's a such thing as temporary PIH or PIE then this is not what's happening and i've done countless research and i'm very confused

no i never have figured it out. just stopped popping pimples and being so hard on my skin to avoid this. if a pimple is really ready to pop properly it shouldn’t need much force
