Blackheads

Whiteheads and blackheads are a normal part of the skin of the nose reponding to hormones. The best creams for it is retinoids such as Retin-A but watch for irratation and it may take awhile to work.

How do i get rid of my horrible black/whiteheads all over my nose and chin?

Blackheads+

Pimples
Start with a deep pore cleansing facial from an aesthetician with experience treating patients with acne. Extraction of blackheads and whiteheads can be done at the time of the facial. You will also benefit from using a cleanser appropriate for your skin type, as well as a treatment lotion that helps skin exfoliation and cell turnover. You may need a series of monthly facials with extractions.

I have whiteheads on my nose and my forehead there real prominent. how do i get rid if them ?

Acne treatment

Antibiotic
There is no one treatment for whiteheads or acne. You need to keep the skin clean and healthy. Sometime you need to have extractions. Most programs add an antibiotic. Find a physician that specializes in acne sometimes it is a trial and error system to find the correct combination of therapies.

Dr. James E. White answered:

How do i get rid of the oily skin and whiteheads and small bumps on your forehead, nose and chin?

Clean and Buff

Skin
Clean: start with conservative measures for whiteheads and oily skin. A cleaning routine is necessary. Consider soaps with dead sea salts which provide a drying effect. Benzoyl peroxide is the main stay for topical therapy for acne. It can be purchased over the counter. Keep your hands off your face. Buff: microdermabrasion along with exfoliants. If these measures fail, physician review.

Pimple crater

Lips
Topical antibiotic or anti-acne cream (like clearasil) should help discourage re-accumulation until it has had a chance to disappear once unroofed (/"popped").

Picked at whitehead on nose, now a hole bigger than pore and pit like. Dermatologist says not infected. Will my skin repair itself? Will retin A help?

Skin lesion

Lips
Leave your skin alone. It will repair itself. If there was no infection and the whitehead was the only thing that came out of it, it will most likely leave no scars, but let it heal itself and keep your hands off your face.

You may need to talk to your dermatologist to possibly add something in the retinoid family to your regimen. If it persists it can potentially lead to scarring. We have a few weapons at our disposal to help address your individual acne needs.
