Dreaming of pus?
I have now had 2 dreams involving the popping of zits. In the first one, I dreamed that I saw something stuck in a pore and got some tweezers to pull it out, it kept coming and came out to be a small cylinder (about the size of a roll of dimes) of pus or whatever comes out of pimples. It left a gaping hole in my forehead that continued to ooze and bleed so that I had to bend over to let it drain into the sink periodically. I couldn’t tell, but it seemed like the hole went through my skull. It was pretty graphic and quite disturbing.
The second one involved me picking at something on my right elbow and having this thick, sticky, white stuff come out. It was kind of like dough or something. It just kept coming and I got the impression that it smelled bad.
I looked up what this means in a dream dictionary and this is what I found:
To dream that you have a pimple, relates to issues about your self-esteem and self-image. You are feeling awkward or out of place in some situation or relationship.
To dream that you are popping a pimple, indicates that some negative emotion needs to be expressed and acknowledge. These emotions that you are holding back are on the verge of erupting.
To dream that you have sores on your body, suggest that you are keeping in some negative emotions and attitudes that need to be released and expressed. Consider the symbolism of the body area where the sores are located. Perhaps the dream is an indication that you are still feeling “sore” and resentful about some situation or relationship.
To see pus in your dream, suggests that you need to express some aspect of your feeling. You may be harboring some prejudices, attitudes, or some other negative emotion that attempting to be released. You need to acknowledge these feelings and deal with them. Also consider the symbolism of where on the body the pus is located.
