Popping pimples in the danger triangle is fatal



Do you have the temptation of squeezing pimples? If yes, think twice before you do so. It could be fatal. The chances of brain infection is very low, but the chance of scarring is fairly high. Both of these side effects are caused by the same basic process: when you pop a pimple, you eject oil, bacteria and inflammatory chemicals onto the surrounding skin. This can cause wider infections and scarring.


You may have heard the advice not to pop pimples, but you might be unknown to the fact that the risk may be even greater than scarring. The triangle zone in the face could be dangerous. Popping a pimple in this area is death-prone and could literally kill you. Blood vessels in this area drain to the back of your head. If you pop a pimple in the danger triangle unintentionally or intentionally and it becomes infected, then it can lead to loss of vision, meningitis, a brain abscess, or even death.

Popping a pimple in a certain area of face could cause potentially fatal brain infections. The “danger triangle” is the area on the face which stretches from the bridge of the nose through the eyes and down to the corners of the mouth and the upper lip. Blood vessels in this area carry blood into the brain. Avoid popping the pimple in the danger zone.

If there is an infection in this area that is not treated properly or quickly, this infection can cause thrombosis or clot of blood, or an infection or abscess in the brain, or even meningitis.

Most pimples will subside on their own within about a week. However, you can treat these pimples without popping them for which you can apply a warm washcloth to open up the pores. Overnight drying creams or Acnes Sealing Gel are also good alternatives that helps to open up the pores without putting dangerous force on your face.

You can also change your lifestyle habits and diet so that it doesn’t cause pimples. Bad diet also contributes to skin problems so eating healthy foods with less sugar can make a difference. You can include nuts, fruits, vegetables, fish and red meat in your balanced diet.

All in all, opt for other methods of getting rid of pimples. Avoid popping pimples as much as possible since the danger triangle zone could be fatal.
