What is blind pimple?

A blind pimple, also known as closed comedones, is a type of acne that forms underneath the skin. 

Unlike whiteheads or blackheads, which are on the surface of the skin & can be easily popped or extracted, blind pimples are deeper & harder to reach. 

They are called "blind" because they don't have a visible white or blackhead on the surface of the skin. 

Blind pimples occur when a hair follicle becomes clogged with excess oil & dead skin cells, creating an environment for bacteria to grow. 

This results in inflammation & swelling, & the formation of a painful, red bump underneath the skin. 

Blind pimples are more common in areas where there are a lot of oil glands, such as the face, neck, chest, & back. 

Because blind pimples are deeper than other types of pimples, they can take longer to heal & may be more difficult to treat.

 Attempting to pop or squeeze a blind pimple can make the inflammation worse & may even cause scarring.
