Hi, I have got an oily skin and I can't get off the black heads from my nose. Is there anyway I can reduce the oilyness and the blackheads? Thanks

Blackheads: Don't scrub! It just injures the skin and increases the risk of infection. Your hormones are to blame for the only skin and I don't think you want to attempt changing that. A salicylic gel or base is probably the most helpful but apply sparingly at night, starting with a couple of times per week, increasing nightly. Use a very gentle cleanser specifically for the face (not for oily skin). ...Read more

Why ask about zebras: B"sd conceivably, due to consequences of soft tissue enlargement. Unless there is some hidden genetic or polyendrocrine syndrome agenda, acromegally would not be among the first things most would think of. In any case a normal IGF-1 level can be relied on to eliminate the possiblity of excess growth hormone. ...Read more
