Oily skin: Clogged pores contribute to whiteheads & blackheads. Over-the-counter products containing salicyclic acid can help unclog pores but can be irritating if overused and are less effective than topical retinoid medications that require a prescription. Advise that you consult a dermatologist for evaluation & treatment for your specific skin care needs.
