What is the best remedy for white heads on the nose and cheek (near the eyes ) . Good medicine or home remedy? Is better?

Cleanser: I would start with a gentle cleanser like cetaphil. Use that daily for a month and see if you notice an improvement. After that i might try an over the counter cream which contains a drug called benzoyl peroxide. If those things do not work then discuss with your doctor. Sometimes prescription creams or even oral medications can help. ...Read more

Above all, like yourself, line and all. If we all did that w/ourselves and one another what a world we would create. Peace and good health. Liquid E comes in a little bottle at the drug store. ...Read more

Please someone tell me a home remedy for a mucous nose?

Please someone tell me a home remedy for a mucous nose?

Neti pot: The net pot is really effective, though admittedly scary to use at first. You can get it at your local drug store, along with the little pre-measured salt packets. The whole thing will cost about $20. Use boiled filtered water that has cooled down, is mildly warm. Too hot or too cold, and it's not that comfortable. http://www.webmd.com/allergies/sinus-pain-pressure-11/neti-pots good luck! ...Read more
