How to Get Rid of a Blind Pimple

1 of 3

Pimples are unpleasant for a lot of reasons, but add pain to the problem and it’s even worse. A blind pimple can be more painful than other pimples because it is deep within the skin, closer to the nerves.

Like all other types of pimples, it is also caused by overactive sebaceous glands under the skin that produce excess oil resulting in clogged pores. But it does not have the typical white head that common pimples have because it remains under the surface of the skin.

These pimples usually grow on the nose, behind the ears and elsewhere on the face. They are normally red in color, contain no pus and vary in size. It is common to get tempted to poke or squeeze a blind pimple, but you should not do that as it would only increase the risk of infection.

Here are the top 10 ways to get rid of a blind pimple.

1. Warm Compress

A warm compress promotes blood circulation, which will speed up the healing process by bringing on the pimple’s head. When the head of a blind pimple opens, the infectious fluid accumulated within it will come out and the healing will begin.

  • Soak a cloth in hot water and hold it on the blind pimple for a few minutes. Repeat the process three or four times a day until the pimple forms a head.
  • Alternatively, you can use a warm black tea bag as a compress. The tannins present in black tea will also help reduce inflammation.

2. Tea Tree Oil

The antibacterial properties of tea tree oil will help kill bacteria that cause pimples and prevent further outbreaks. It will also soothe the skin and quicken the healing process.

Tea tree oil works like a cleanser, penetrating deep in the skin and opening clogged pores. It’s important to always dilute tea tree oil before applying it on your skin.

3. Toothpaste

Some people find it very useful to apply toothpaste on blind pimples. However, if you have sensitive skin you need to be careful as toothpastes contain chemical substances that can irritate your skin.

For treating a blind pimple, always use white toothpaste. White toothpaste usually contains mint or clove oil that help reduce the size of pimples and also alleviate soreness and redness.

  1. Apply a small amount of white toothpaste on the blind pimple before going to bed. Leave it on overnight.
  2. In the morning, wash your face with lukewarm water.
  3. Do this daily until the blind pimple vanishes.

Note: This remedy can be done during the day also. The toothpaste must remain on the pimple for at least one to two hours.

4. Honey

Honey has antiseptic as well as antimicrobial properties that work together to fight bacteria responsible for blind pimples and other types of pimples. Further, honey works as a gentle yet deep cleanser so scarring will not occur on pimple-prone skin types.

  • Dip a cotton ball in pure honey and apply it generously on the affected skin area. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Repeat the process three times a day for effective results.
  • Blend an apple into pulp. Mix one tablespoon of the mashed apple with one tablespoon of honey to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on the affected area and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then wash your skin well with lukewarm water. Do this once daily to help heal a blind pimple effectively.

5. Milk

Milk contains alpha hydroxy acids, also known as AHA, that can help unclog pores by removing the outer layer of dead skin and the accumulated oil and dirt. Also, AHA will make your skin smooth.

  • Apply milk to the blind pimple using a cotton ball and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then wash the area with lukewarm water. Do this three times a day until the head of the pimple comes out.
  • Alternatively, put a slice of bread in warm milk, and put the soaked bread on a cloth to make a poultice. Apply the poultice to the blind pimple for a few minutes. Repeat the process twice daily until you notice improvement.

6. Lemon Juice

You can also treat blind pimples with lemon juice. The citric acid present in lemon juice works as an astringent to dry out the pimple. It also works as a cleanser to help remove bacteria and dirt and speed up the healing process.

  • Extract the juice from one or two lemons. Dip a gauze pad in the juice and apply it to the inflamed area. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then wash it off. Do this two or three times a day for three to four days to see visible results.
  • Alternatively, combine one tablespoon each of lemon juice and rose water. Apply it on the pimple using a cotton ball. Leave it on for half an hour and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Do this twice daily for a few days.

  2. This is very helpful, one night of using the toothpaste method and bam! It disappeared immediately when I woke up the next morning.

  3. Colgate toothpaste worked. I had 3 active pimples and left the toothpaste on my skin overnight to wake up to the pimples gone. All that there was left was a red spot but I was able to cover it up green with makeup 🙂 i love clear skin!

  4. Warm compress worked really well! Brought it to the surface after having it applied for 5-10 minutes. I was then able to clear it out and put some Sudocrem on it for it’s antiseptic qualities. It leaves it a little red and maybe initially noticeable, but more importantly it starts the regeneration process. Give it a try guys and gals!
