What makes up a puss zit?


Answer by  monkeyz (3150)

A zit filled with pus (a whitehead) is full of fluid, blood, and pus. The blood is the result of inflammation, and that is what makes the area hurt, redden, and swell. The pus itself is actually made up of millions of dead white blood cells that have been sacrificed in the fight against the bacteria clogging up your pore.

When a foreign substance such as dirt or make-up is left on the skin over a period, it will clog the pores; the pores become infected and fill with oil.
