I mostly don’t pick anymore, but sometimes I scratch minor things. Which leads to inflammation. My primary issue is actually not picking (my face) anymore, but physically examining my face with my hands all the time and constantly worrying about it. Which is not helping my remaining bumps clear up.
And lol, I did end up picking today (August 3rd). Although I just put my sides of my two fingers next to it so that it was sandwiched there, then gently squeezed. Oh well.
