Multiple treatments: Try over the counter topical treatments such as benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. If this fails you will need a doctor to prescribe a topical prescription strength treatment such as clindamycin, retin a, (tretinoin) etc with or without an oral antibiotic. If all else fails an esthetician can properly extract blackheads or white head from the face.
