Are whiteheads and blackheads on the face acne?

Are whiteheads and blackheads on the face acne?

Yes: Whiteheads and blackheads are one type of acne called comedones. They are caused by oil and dead skin cells which leave a plug below the skin. These are best treated with comedolytics (medications that open up the pores), such as retina, benzoyl peroxide, and salicylic acids. Other types of acne include inflammatory acne (red pimples) and cystic acne-- these respond best to oral medications. ...Read more

Blackheads all over my face especially my chin, nose, cheeks and forehead  I use a blackhead face scrub in the shower but it doesn't help?

Don't scrub!: Your face isn't a pot - don't scrub it. As to what treatment is best for you, each individual responds differently to different treatments, so there is no one "most effective" treatment. A dermatologist can tailor a treatment based on your skin type and the variety of acne you have. ...Read more

Can benzoyl peroxide close the large pore from cheek on face?

Can benzoyl peroxide close the large pore from cheek on face?

NO: BPO is a topical antibiotic good for killing once causing bacteria. Your large pore is filled with oils and cellular debris, to treat it you have to clean it out . I would use a mild soap and follow up with a god exfoliator. Some term practices have them and they either have glycol acid or salicylic acid to exfoliate. These 2 measures will help a lot more than the bPO ...Read more

Pimples all over face with pores on cheek and spots size of pimples are small plzz help me?

Scientific Rx: Topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated. I see that you already have scarring from your acne having been neglected when you were younger. I'm sorry this happened. At age 19, you're old enough to phone your physician who can add prescription-strength Rx to your benzoyl peroxide regimen. You will probably need to do this. Best wishes. ...Read more

My face have lot of acne spot,how to remove acne spot in my face and stop acne?

Not curable: You must manage your acne until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add some prescription-strength Rx. Since you say you have it only on your face, it's likely that adding a topical antibiotic such as Clindamycin will be sufficient, but if you need something strong, go for it. ...Read more

How can I clear pores on face, esp. nose & chin? Nose pores are dark, under bottom lip are small white bumps, both make whitish solid when squeezed

Pores: Without a closeup exam I cannot say for certain but the pores are part of the normal anatomy of your skin and they are full of sebum (oil) from below. When it gets to the surface it oxidizes and turns dark. To try to "clean" them you would be as successful as King Canute ordering the tide to hold back at his command. You must know how successful that was unless you are a Republican!! ...Read more
