SUI

fu(ku)

meaning: blow, breathe out

吹き出す == fukidasu == (verb) to spout, to spurt, to gush out, to burst into laughter
吹出物 ==  fukidemono == (noun) pimple, acne, boil



Left radical is 'mouth' (口). Right radical is 'lack' (欠), in its literal meaning of 'gaping mouth'. This character originally represented a person letting out a big breath. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Lack mouth, but breathe and blow nonetheless.'
