The sebum is plugging the ducts. Change the oil. This is a systemic problem. Look at your life style. What are you eating? Avoid tobacco, alcohol, and junk food. Juice fresh vegetables each day, and eat plenty of fresh vegetables. Avoid fatty foods. Try coconut oil which is never stored as fat. Avoid processed butter substitutes, nuts, and other processed oils. Try cold pressed olive oil.

Online but without an infectious cause to treat. Try warm compresses to soften sebum and gently exfoliate.
