Please Don'T Eat Before Watching This Guy Pop A Monstrous Zit On His Face
Never mind that pretty much every dermatologist, everywhere advises against it: If you have a pimple on your face, you’re probably going to pop it. And if it’s huge, it’s just a matter of time.
In a new YouTube video that’s gone viral, a normal-looking guy shows off the biggest zit we’ve ever seen on the side of his face and then proceeds to squeeze it. (If you’re eating while reading this, now is definitely the time to stop.)

“It hurts like f—king hell," he says, before starting to squeeze. And then, nasty yellowish-white puss literally pours out of the zit and down his face. His “uggghh!” reaction is pretty spot-on. He keeps on squeezing as more puss flows out and drips on the ground. “Ugh, disgusting,” he says.

At one point, he stops to actually smell the nasty stuff, although he doesn’t say what compelled him to do that. “It doesn't smell very good," he says, surprising no one. The guy squeezes a few more times before announcing that the zit “feels better.”
From the looks of it, that zit/cyst/whatever could probably use a doctor’s attention. What he doesn’t address is how that pimple got so big and why he let it go for so long. Of course, he’s not the only guy out there with a pimple-popping video. (You can check out a bunch of nasty ones here if you so choose.)
Let this be a lesson to everyone: If you have a monstrous zit, don’t just let it go—get it checked out, ideally by a dermatologist. If you do end up taking matters into your own hands, make sure your fingers are clean first. Then, use a cold compress on the area afterward to reduce swelling and redness, and follow that with some benzoyl peroxide to help reduce the amount of bacteria in the area. (Here's the best way to treat adult acne.)
If you find that you're regularly getting zits in the same spot, check in with your dermatologist—he or she might be able to suss out why you're getting them so much, and how to prevent them in the future.
