you get pimples during puberty because during this time hormon levels are up. these hormones cause all glands to intensiy their secretion, including sebum secreting glands.
If the sebum galnd's canal gets clogged then a pimple appears. You shouldn't squeeze it because it can get infected

You shouldn't squeeze it. (this is a scientific info, not the thing I'd done :lol: )

Freckles are an entirely different matter.

Melanin under the skin is in concentrated patches and so when the skin is exposed to sunlight it freckles. Children have more sensative skin and freckle more readily. They also remain a long time and take much longer to fade than regular skin pigmentation.

Red heads for example do not have an even distribution in the skin and tend not to tan but freckle instead. It is thought those who freckle evolved in colder climates and therefore the need for protection from the sun was not as important.

Does that mean if one's face is oily, he gets more pimples? :?

Me either...a lot of oil, and I've been thinking to use the oil for motorcycle fuel..:lol:
sebum glands (in puber period) secretes more oil because the abnormality of hormone equilibrium state..sometimes, the oil duct can be clooged so the oil have a hard time to go out...since then, it's a nice living place for some bacteria ( that's why you oftenly found white liquid after you squeeze the pimples..actually that's the collection of bacteria and phagocyte's dead body).

So that means they are simply stuck in there,and can't spread to any other parts of the body?

They actually can spread, but just think...the first place they arrived has a plenty of food and in order to spread, you have to face granulocytes....which do you prefer??
If me, as a bacteria, I prefer the first one..:lol:
