Popping Pimples…

We do this every day.

There’s some joy from squeezing the life out of a juicy pimple no matter how painful it may be.

(Don’t say eew. We all do it)

We’ve all heard countlessly why we should not be popping pimples on our faces.

We’ve been told of Spots. Nasty little black spots that will spread all over your face.

(That doesn’t stop us anyways)

Well, here’s something you probably didn’t know about your favorite pastime.

Popping pimples can KILL you. yes! you heard right.

There’s an area called the Danger Triangle which is found across parts of the eyes, the bridge of the nose, the corners of the mouth and the upper lip.

The blood vessels in this zone actually drain back to your head and connect directly to your brain. Any infection in this area, if not treated properly, can cause thrombosis, abscess in the brain, or even meningitis.
Shocking right?

Here’s something else you probably didn’t think existed;

 

Dry Drowning.

We all know about drowning…in water.

Normal huh? well, we’ve got news for you.

you can drown when you get OUT of the water.

Shocking right?

Although it’s not accepted as an official medical term, dry drowning can occur one hour after a swim but it can also happen to a person even after 24 hours have passed.

Even though it is extremely rare, dry drowning can be fatal.

When a person is suffering from dry drowning there is very little fluid in the lungs at that moment what actually happens is your vocal cords spasm and close up shutting off your airways, making it hard to breathe.

Here’s one more thing that will shock you.
