Acne is by far the most common skin problem that brings women and even men to the dermatologists. Professional help ensures that acne, in the mild and severe forms gets minimized as far as possible, leaving behind a minimal amount of scars.
However, if you are one of those who just can't resist touching and squeezing your pimples, sit up and listen. Fiddling with or forcibly squeezing pimples can actually cause permanent scarring of the skin, which is definitely more traumatic than having an ugly looking scar itself. Easier said than done, but it is important that you do not get into the allurement of getting rid of that horrible looking pimple right away, by simply squeezing it.
Instead, what you can actually do is to keep an acne stick handy. This is a kind of cosmetic which looks like a pen and can be just applied on the pimple like a dot. Also, keep the specialized anti acne creams and ointments at hand, which will help you resist the temptation till you reach your doctor.
