What is a pimple made of?
- A pimple is made from sebum (skin oil) that gets trapped in your facial skin pores.
- This oil, along with a combination of dead skin cells, debris (such as makeup), and bacteria is what pimple pus is made of.
- Pimple pus is what fills a pimple.
- When you have inflammatory acne lesions (such as pustules, papules, nodules, and cysts), your immune system activates in this area, resulting in noticeable pus.
