White Lumps on Face after Picking

Recommended Posts

This morning I was removing comedones from my cheek and it was one of the worst ones I've had, the seed is still poking out...around this particular comedone is about 4 or 5 other ones. After squeezing and having no luck I continued until the skin went white and it is still lumpy. I noticed the skin was peeling off and now the whole area (containing all these comedones, about half an inch by half an inch circular) has shedded skin and looks shiny/lighter than the rest of my face.

I only have a couple icepick scars on my face so far...I'm very afraid of how this looks. It's extremely painful and I just showered.

Should I expect this torn off skin to scar or heal?

Please respond.

I can't answer your question, because scarring is unpredictable. To be blunt: if you squeeze blackheads or pimples, it can create more pimples, and leave scars.
