When one young Texan woman found an inflamed pimple near her eyebrow, she thought that popping it would be the best way to get rid of the unsightly spot. But after she squeezed the zit, it just got bigger – then became agonizingly painful. And it wasn’t long after that she realized how serious her condition actually was.
Katie Wright comes from the city of Austin in Texas, and in 2017 she was just an average 21-year-old. Just like most young women, for instance, she took great pride in her appearance. In fact, Wright was skillful at applying makeup and regularly shared glamorous selfies on her Instagram page.
So when Wright discovered a pimple close to her eyebrow she was mildly concerned. The under-the-skin swelling was painful, but she knew better than to pick away at it. So she left things alone for a couple of days to let the zit run its course. If she kept away from the spot, she thought, it would probably disappear on its own.
