Bleeding and minor bruising are common, and secondary infection may occur. If the skin becomes warm, red, or tender, it is best to seek medical advice.
Picking at a pimple may push infected material further into the skin leading to more swelling and redness, and scarring usually follows. Skin that is repeatedly being picked on may change colour resulting in pigmented spots on the skin.
3. Avoiding social situations
People who always pick on their acne may start to avoid social situations and meeting up with friends because they are upset with their visible scars.
4. Excessive makeup to conceal scars
To cover up the scarring caused by skin pickings, more makeup is applied to cover up the scars. However, applying makeup on open wounds may further worsen the condition and cause more scars to form.
