SHAVING PROBLEMS: You may be shaving too closely. You may be shaving against the grain. You may be using a dull razor. Shave with the grain; shave with a new razor (if you are using razors not electric shavers), and do not shave too closely. Particularly if you have curly hair (on your scalp).
A 18-year-old male asked:
I have white heads around the corner of my lips, how can I treat this? When you see it looks like my lips are wider because of this.

SSee derm: It would be best for you to discuss treatment options with a dermatologist that can see the area.
