Is That Bump a Pimple or an Ingrown Hair? A Dermatologist Explains How to Tell
A pimple can look like many things: a large bump, a small bump, a round and red bump, a hard and white bump — the list goes on. This can make it hard to identify whether a blemish is actually a blemish or if it's something else. For example, the bump on your skin that you think is a pimple (that also feels oddly sore) might actually be an ingrown hair, in which case, you should put down your hand mirror and avoid popping it at all costs.
