Doctor, my skin has a lot of blind pimples on the forehead and the 2 cheeks, which are very irritating to touch. I don’t pop them because I am afraid that the can become more severe. Can you tell me if the blind pimples disappear by themselves? Thank you for your answer.

What are blind pimples?
Blind pimples are a type of acne with comedones lie deep inside the follicles, making them less visible to the naked eyes but still bring a rough sensation on the skin every you touch it.

Will blind pimples disappear by themselves if you don’t pop them?
You may wonder if you don’t pop them, will the blind pimples disappear by themselves. Not popping pimples by yourself at home is a good thing as doing it wrong will cause the condition to worsen.
Regardless of the acne conditions that you have, you should never pop them by yourself unless you know for sure how to do it right. Otherwise, the pimple areas could get inflamed and turn into major inflammation clusters.
However, in theory, blind pimples are still, well, pimples. This means that their comedones still need to be pushed out to prevent them from developing, treating them entirely. So will the blind pimples disappear by themselves if you don’t pop them?
If you leave them alone, they will never go away by themselves. The longer you let them stay on your face, the deeper the comedones go inside your follicles, causing the treatment to be harder by the day.
As their comedones are barely visible without any redness or inflammation, they don’t cause too many aesthetic problems. For that reason, many decided to cover them up with makeup. This is the flaw that makes them appear even more.
For that reason, you will need to remove the comedones to treat blind pimples entirely, preventing them from coming back.
The goals of blind pimples therapy
During blind pimples therapy, 2 goals need to be reached to consider it as an effective treatment:
- Short-term goal: to push all the comedones onto the skin surface and dissolve them to prevent skin inflammation that forms papules. Limit the activity of the sebaceous glands, preventing inflammation and bacteria.
- Long-term goal: to get rid of all the blind pimples without leaving any scars and prevent them from coming back.
How to prevent the formation of blind pimples
Wash your face clean
During blind pimples treatment, to achieve the best result, you will need to cleanse your skin daily, frequently, and properly. The steps are:
- Remove makeup with a makeup remover that is suitable for your skin and needs.
- Wash your face with a mild facial cleanser, not a strong one.
- Exfoliate the skin either physically or chemically (with BHA) 2-3 times a week.
- Keep your skin clean and away from all the dirt. You can wash your face with cool water if you feel like it is too oily or too dirty.
After being cleansed, your skin will need to be moistened with toner, rose extract, serum, and moisturizer.
By moistening your skin, you are helping it to control the sebaceous glands, preventing the pores from being clogged, and lowering the chance of having pimples.
Have a logical diet
To maximize the blind pimples treatment results, you will need to have a logical diet. This means that you should eat more fruits that contain lots of water, consume more vegetables, especially the dark-green ones. You should also reduce the amount of starch, oily and spicy food, and alcohol in your meals.
