First of all, whether it is acne before or after breakage, it is not recommended to squeeze by yourself.

①Squeeze pimples yourself, it is very likely that the remaining pus will be squeezed into the deep layers of the skin, aggravating inflammation, making the acne heal more slowly, and even forming deep pimple marks; if the disinfection is not in place, it may lead to further infection, especially Squeeze pimples in the “danger triangle” of the face.

The “dangerous triangle” refers to the area formed by the connection between the corners of the mouth and the root of the nose. This area is rich in blood supply, and some blood vessels are connected to the intracranial blood vessels. Some of the blood vessels are not protected by venous valves, and the blood inside can directly Backflow into a group of intracranial venous vascular areas.
