The term ‘blind pimple’ refers to an acne lesion, usually a cyst or nodule, that lurks under the surface of your skin. In some cases, these painful lumps are barely noticeable but, when you get a blind pimple on your nose, you may find it hard to ignore.
A blind pimple develops much like any other pimple – from a combination of dead skin cells and oil blocking your pore and allowing acne-causing bacteria to thrive and cause inflammation.
This inflammation is what causes the redness and pain you may be experiencing with a blind pimple on your nose.
However, a blind pimple has not yet come to a ‘head’ which can be very frustrating if you’re a picker or a squeezer (which, hopefully, you are not as it increases the risk of scarring).
So, how can you get rid of a blind pimple on your nose?
