  • popping pimples actually makes things worse. I have left it alone and the next day the white head is gone. now the Q-tips thing, how else do you clean the ears if you don't use a Q-tip? lol

  • I can't imagine not cleaning my ears with qtips....I'd probably go insane since my ears drain all the time....But yes, i'm guilty of both:)

  • I do licensed skin care, and there is nothing wrong with extracting a pimple if it's done properly. It actually can make the zit heal quicker. I get paid to do extractions on both comedones and pimples. I use qtips, sterile tools, and gloves. White heads are nasty.

    I clean my ears, but not all the way in..lol
