Acne wash: The black head on a pimple (open comedon) is pigment seen in the opening of a hair follicle and not dirt. Using benzoyl peroxide--either alone or in combination with another acne medication---is an effective means of taking care of this.

This usually make things go away more quickly, or at least makes them come to a head. ...Read more
