I have the things coming through the pores outside and inside from my nose also the skin is very oily it must be a STD which I've caught stdfromtoilet?

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. Most bacteria, viruses, and parasites cannot live outside a person for any prolonged period of time. ...Read more

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
