Small white pimples

Q: Sometimes I have these white things on my face, like bubbles with white pus inside. They come for few days and go. What I noticed happening is some of them I see before sleeping and not anymore when I make wudu for fajr.

1. Does it mean they exploded during a night, because obviously then cant dry and fall out as a dry skin during a night and does it mean my pillowcase has to be changed, my face and hair has to be washed, is it all najasa?

2. I think many people can have them in different places of their bodies, back, leg, hips, etc. do we have to check and track their condition all the time to see if we r in najasa or can just forget in shaa Allah? Example I had a pain on my back knowing its from a red spot that can have pus in it, must I stand and check if there is a pus in the middle of a nap to see what is the condition in the morning, should I bath or no if I see no pus in the morning?

3. Does explosion of this pus break wudu?

4. Sometimes this pus inside is not liquid but hard, may be its other kind of spots, I don’t know, but would like to ask if I scratch that hard ball (pus) out of its place, does wudu break?



1. The pillowcase is paak.

2. No.

3. Pus must be treated as blood in every respect. Like flowing blood breaks wudhu, pus will also break wudhu.

4. As above.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
