Does baby soap produce blackheads on my face?

Does baby soap produce blackheads on my face?

Shouldnt: Probably has no effect. The best treatment for blackheads is long term use of prescription tretinoin or adapalene.

A procedure called dermasweep has given my patients good results, too. ...Read more

Would biting your nails cause pimples on your face. My grandaughter bites her nails and breaking out now with pimples on her face.

Use this to help your granddaughter. ...Read more
