Do pimple patches work for everyone?

Whenever i use a pimple patch on a juicy pimple, i end up with an open wound exactly similar to the one that occurs after popping a pimple. Does this happen with everyone else or is it only me? I always end up with a bad scar whenever i use a pimple patch and idk how to make it work😭😭

That doesn't happen to me. Patches usually save me the scar and help flatten and heal the pimple. When I take it off, it's no longer open. 🙂 Someone mentioned something similar recently, so I've been wondering maybe it's the type of the patches. They certainly shouldn't have strong "glue" in the centre. The ones I'm using stick best on edge and only slightly in the middle. This means when I'm taking it off, it doesn't stretch the skin on the pimple but only around.

i used two kinds of pimple patches (cosrx and ZitSticka) and they both got great reviews, specially the cosrx one, but for me i got the same outcome which is an open wound just like when i pop a pimple. the pimple patches you mentioned sounds great but unfortunately i found the shipping fees are crazy expensive since i live in canada 😑

it might be that the adhesive is too strong. touching the sticky side with your finger before applying it lessens some of the stickiness

i found that they only work when the pimple is juicy and has a white head, but for me they leave an open wound which causes scaring 😞

This is just my opinion but maybe instead of those because you say it doesn’t work maybe try some good toner with green tea,somethinf that won’t iritate your acne.⭐️ I personally see that a lot of people don’t like them
