However, as the days passed, the pimple simply got bigger and more obvious on Wright’s face. As a result, she decided that she would have to take the matter in hand. So one evening after steaming her face in the shower, she attempted to pop the problem zit.
But all of Wright’s efforts just seemed to anger the blemish. “My head just got hotter and hotter and started swelling up,” she told NBC’s Today program in August 2017. “It was unimaginable pain. I thought maybe I irritated my skin too much or pushed too hard.”
Wright’s discomfort did not subside. In fact, it only intensified. So she took some anti-inflammatory pain relief pills and placed an icepack on the area. Then she went to her bed and hoped that both the pain and the blemish would have magically disappeared by the time she woke up the next morning.
