Question Blackheads... way to get rid of them without a dermo?

Is there a way to get rid of blackheads without a dermo? I'm wondering because I have this small one on my nose that i'm hoping to get rid of, but I don't want to go to a dermotalogist and pay $75 just for one blackhead. So, is there anyway to get rid of it without the threat of scarring?

I have always had good results with blackheads using
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. I would use it after showering or bathing while the pores were open real good, put it on thick and let it dry for at least an hour. When my blackheads were bad I would use it on my nose every night. You can get it in most drug stores and Walmart carries it too. Im not sure if this will help but I wish you luck.

I always thought that blackheads weren't clogged pores.

Anyway, i'm not sure if it is a blackhead anymore. It's definately not a whitehead, and i've had it for a year or 2... I can't remember. It doesn't really disrupt my appearance, but i'm very tempted to do something to it.

So I guess what i'm askin is: What exactly is a blackhead? And is there anyway to get rid of one without a dermo?

Yeah blackheads are clogged pores, they are made up of dirt and oil and the dirt gives them their "black" appearance. Anyway, have you tried biore pore strips?? Or if you have maybe you should try a peel off mask. I use the freeman beautiful skin cucumber and ginseng mask, it works pretty good. Good luck!
