Im Getting Blackheads And Whiteheads Around My Nose Is It Normal
Hi, Im 23 female and I am getting little whiteheads inside of my nose and often I get them in my t zone too. This is something new to my skin. ?
Not serious: Sounds like you are having more oil production and the pores are getting clogged. Try scraping very gently to get the tops off, using just a fingernail. Apply very warm washcloth to any place that these develop to help keep the pores open and use a soap that is not oily. You may have some hormonal issues. ...Read more
I have a lot of blackheads around my nose area. It has a brown colour and it's deep inside my pores. I keep my face clean all the time. many thanks?
Not dirt: Blackheads are not dirt. Acne is sebum plugs in large oil glands. We call them comedones. When open to air the sebum becomes oxidized, which is a dark color. Often they can be squeezed out, which does not cause scars. The best treatment is a retinoid. Tretinoin [RetinA] and adapalene [Differin] come in different strengths as creams or gels. Often irritating initially, they provide results in 3 mon ...Read more
I keep having bad acne just around my lips and below my nose. What could this be? History of acne, but at 27 now just around the mouth.
Perioral Dermatitis: Perioral dermatitis (pod) is a chronic papulopustular and eczematous facial dermatitis. It mostly occurs in women and children.The clinical and histologic features of the perioral dermatitis lesions resemble those of rosacea. Patients require systemic and/or topical treatment, an evaluation of the underlying factors, and reassurance. ...Read more
Is folliculitis contagious? My bf seems to have it in his beard now my face is breaking out in itchy pimples that come and go around hairline and nose
Yes: it is caused by Staph. Aureus. Most people do not have this germ on their skin. It can cause boils/pimples with any break in the skin. ON THE OTHER HAND, hairline and nose are places for acne rather than boils. And different germs are involved with that than in folliculitis. So, while folliculitis is contagious (as folliculitis or as boils) it is NOT contagious as acne and YOU probably don't have ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've been on accuyane 30mg 16 weeks my cheeks and nose and blemishes are very red when I get embarrassed or hot is this normal?
Check with derm: Accutane may cause blushing which usually resolves after treatment. People speculate that Accutane increases vascularity if the skin like. increased redness in the skin while on Accutane can also be due to sun burn (as the skin is more sensitive) and dryness. You should follow-up with your dermatologist to see if there is something else like rosacea occurring. ...Read more
Why is getting rid of acne so hard? I cleanse, tone, moisturizer twice a day and i still get blackheads and whiteheads. Its affecting my self esteem.
Acne: This may be all about your hormones and genes and the skin type you have. If you are doing everything right and still having trouble you may need some prescription medication to supplement what you are doing naturally. It is not impossible to get improvement. You just may need help. ...Read more
I have whiteheads on my cheeks and forehead. I started using face wash with salicylic acid now they are turning to blackheads. It this normal?
Black vs whiteheads: Whiteheads are pores covered by a thin layer of skin cells. Thus, oils and white blood cells that react to oils (or to acne bacteria in the oil gland) are stuck just under the surface of the skin. The result is a whitehead. It's possible for them to "turn into" blackheads if the thin layer of cells got scrubbed away with washing, allowing the trapped comedone to darken upon exposure to air oxygen. ...Read more
HI.I've got little bumps like acne around my nose On front cheeks for months.I am not very sure as to what it really is.they r pinkish n smtims itchy.
My legs always itch, but now im getting bumps and they're changing color and pus comes out when i squeeze'em, is this bad?
Not trustworthy: Although it seems the cream is doing its expected job on you if your skin is lightening, it does not seem that this product is very trustworthy. For one, it does not have a full list of ingredients and the manufacturers don't even give detailed instructions on how to properly use it. There isn't even a website with manufacturing info to consult. I would not use this particular product. ...Read more

I've been on 30mg Accutane for 4 months im still breaking out and my face is red and my red marks are severe im so depressed is this normal?
I just started using tretinoin
for my face. I have a lot of white heads and black heads. My face started to itch and build allergies. Is this normal?
Yes: Your face is itchy, but not from allergies. During introduction of tretinoin it is usually irritating. With continued use the skin will tolerate it without itch, redness, peeling, etc. Use of other acne topicals , harsh washing, and use of large amounts make this worse. Wash gently. Wait at least 15min after wash before application. Use very small amt., use moisturizers. Skip 1 or 2 nights when se ...Read more
How can I get rid of acne? I have tired every acne cleanser and face cleanser their is and nothing seems to work. If anything it sometimes makes my face worse. All of my acne is on my face, just on my cheeks and chin.
Serious Rx: You need to get with a physician. Cleansers aren't going to help. Monitoring your diet is good advice. I'm going to assume you've tried benzoyl peroxide without being cleared. Chances are that your physician may add a topical antibiotic, topical spironolactone, or (if it's right for you) the oral contraceptive pill, and you can end this suffering, managing it until it self-cures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Rosacea?: Without a photo, it is hard to say. One likely possibility is the skin condition called rosacea. It can be aggravated with alcohol and prone to flare ups from time to time. Rosacea is associated with an increased propensity toward acne and styes. To get an accurate diagnosis, you will most likely need to see a doctor in person or upload a high res photo. ...Read more
