    They all have approximately the same meaning. However the third version is more vulgar.
    The 1st could mean "don't rub salt into a wound" - meaning "don't make me feel more uncomfortable, I feel uncomfortable already."
    But the 3rd refers to the method of training a puppy not to 'poop' indoors, by rubbing its face in the excrement it has left.

    Yes, they all mean the same thing. (Sort of "don't tease me about it" or "stop talking about it.") :D
