It turned black: Because you created a blood scab. It has persisted for 3 weeks perhaps because you are picking at it. This will cause the inflammation to become chronic and increase likelihood of scarring. The best thing for you to do is use a gentle facial cleanser (do NOT scrub), 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, and a light facial moisturizer everyday, and LEAVE IT ALONE. Seek dermatologist advice if that fails. ...Read more

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
