Skin lesion: Leave your skin alone. It will repair itself. If there was no infection and the whitehead was the only thing that came out of it, it will most likely leave no scars, but let it heal itself and keep your hands off your face. ...Read more

Not sure how to: Answer this question. You describe issues related to your nose but yet you feel like this is a related to a STD. Not that you don't have a problem, but it's not likely a STD causing these issues. Additionally realize it's very unlikely that you've be infected with an STD from a toilet set.

Large Pores: Large pores are genetic. Need to practice good skin hygiene to keep them clean and unblocked. Natural skin tighteners are ice, baking soda paste, lemon & pineapple juice, light scrubs, yogurt mask. May need exfoliants like alpha and beta hydroxy acids every 4-6 weeks to stimulate collagen and tighten pores. There are also Dermapen and light-based tx by medical professional that can smoothen skin. ...Read more
