I'm 40 years old and have very large pores on my nose...Is there a way to shrink them? An prescription or OTC treatment? They look like mini blackheads. Thanks!
PORES: Pores are not like doors. You cannot open and close them whenever you wish. Pores are the openings of oil glands; they are inherited; you cannot change their size. Oily skin & severe acne may make pores “appear” larger. Squeezing blackheads & pimples can lead to permanently widened pores. Toners & astringents can make them look smaller temporarily. And get rid of your magnifying mirrors! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Losing a tooth in one jaw causes the tooth in the opposing jaw to over erupt and the neighboring teeth to drift. A replacement in the form of a "bridge" or an implant crown may be indicated to prevent any undesirable consequences. Consult with your dentist to determine the right treatment. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I have a soft corn on my third toe and
I have been using Dr. Scholls corn removers to rid the appearance, but it keeps re-appearing after treatment. ?
Soft corn: These are tough, because the area between the toes is usually very moist--it is difficult to get anything to stick there. The condition is most often caused by a prominent bone in one or both of the toes that rub against each other. Try padded sleeves or tube foam. Ultimately, an X ray and surgery (shaving down the prominent bone, etc.) may be necessary to get rid of the problem. ...Read more

Can a gential wart texturally change from a raised bumpy wart to Verrucae wart in appearance after TCA acid treatment?
Wart topical therapy: Sure - you're basically trying to destroy the thing with a chemical compound, so I would expect some morphological changes. What exactly that's going to look like on it's way to final destruction depends on the starting size, how much treatment you give it etc. The thing about warts is they 'hide' from the immune system, so they can be somewhat persistent. Sounds like you're making progress tho. ...Read more
