I have a whiteheads on my nose inside of my nose skin and whenever I remove it, it makes a hole what should I do?
Could be bacteria: If these are truly whiteheads (i.e., pimples), then they are collections of pus. It may be related to colonization of your nasal passages with bacteria (more than normal). You should probably see your doctor to be sure this is not a sign of a more serious medical process. It may be as simple as a course of antibiotics to clear it or you may need some topical antibiotics in your nose. ...Read more
Hi, I'm 23 female and I am getting little whiteheads inside of my nose and often I get them in my t zone too. This is something new to my skin.?
Not serious: Sounds like you are having more oil production and the pores are getting clogged. Try scraping very gently to get the tops off, using just a fingernail. Apply very warm washcloth to any place that these develop to help keep the pores open and use a soap that is not oily. You may have some hormonal issues. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Bump on tip of nose. Looks like whitehead but it's not. Tried to pop it, but it won't. Bleeds only. I tried to cut it off. Grew back. Hurts to touch.
See doctor: It is not feasible to be sure, but what you described suggests a keratoacanthoma, a benign tumor. It would be prudent to see your doctor, (you should have one under the Canadian healthcare). Request referral to a plastic surgeon for removal and examination of the tissue by a pathologist. ...Read more

How do I get rid of the oily skin and whiteheads and small bumps on your forehead, nose and chin?
Clean and Buff:
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. ...Read more

Pimple: I am not aware of any deaths caused by popping pimples in your nose. The internet is full of bad medical advice. We typically suggest you don't squeeze pimples because of the trauma and scarring that can occur. However, realising how painful these can be, do what you need to do. I trust San Rafael is wonderful used to live there as a youth. ...Read more
Any advice about how to treat acne? Whiteheads on checks? Blackheads on nose? Pimples on chin, forehead, and around the eyes? Advice?
Some options...: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is quite helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics such as tetracycline can be used also. If acne is quite severe, a dermatologist might use oral ccutane. ...Read more
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 (tretinoin) help?

My daughter has tiny, whitehead like bumps in her head like bumps in her head. Could it be something more than a rash?
Maybe: That is tough to answer without seeing it. White bumps in a newborn can be nothing significant. In an older child could be just a rash...A virus...If they are tender that is a concern. Are they on the scalp? Or on the hair shaft in which case we think of nits. Is it in the hairline or in the hair? A great question and best answered with a face to face visit with your pediatrician. ...Read more

I have a bump on my penis. Looks like a pimple. It came to a head, I squeezed it and exhumed a solid whitehead. Should I be worried?
What is the solid, yellow, stuff that squeezes out of a zit/black head/whitehead when you pop it? I've seen it on cysts too.
Sebum: The white cheesy material present in acne and in sebaceous cysts is called Sebum. It is essentially the waterproofing of the skin produced by sebaceous glands. When these glands get blocked by oils and dead skin cells, it results in an acne blemish. If the gland ruptures into the deeper tissues it can result in the growth of a cyst containing the same material known as a sebaceous cyst. ...Read more
