squeezin' blackheads around the nose

Hello all,

My acne isn't too bad these days, but I do have blackheads and whiteheads where my nose joins the face. (make sense?) They're pretty small and not very noticable, but they won't go away and have been there forever. If I squeeze the skin around that area, a bunch of white stuff oozes out, like toothpaste. It's gross. But nothing has "popped" and healed, because clogged pores remain.

So any advice? I should probably stop squeezing, my nose is red. But I can't seem to stop!

Re: squeezin' blackheads around the nose

ay, i always had that problem. its a real pain in the neck aint it? well- till this day i still havent figured out what can be done about elimating the acne in that location. no matter how much medicine i put on it, it dont go away. i just pop them whenever i see them appear. and your right, you really have to look for them because they arent noticable. but thank god theyre the easiest ones to pop. if i figure out what to do ill let you know. untill i figure something out, if anyone can give any suggestions, please do so. thanks
and take care.

Re: squeezin' blackheads around the nose

Ohhh....I can't stand those stupid nose blackheads. I never had blackheads until I started on the tazorac.... lol...I'm thinking that I traded closed pores filled with gunk for open pores filled with uhh...the same gunk.

And one of these days I will find a way to solve the problem of the disgusting nose blackheads. Oh well...and life goes on

Re: squeezin' blackheads around the nose

The same thing happened to me with the Biore Pore strips. I still use them. I cut only a small portion of the strip off and put that over the area that needs it. The skin that is "boney" part of my nose is the part that I had trouble with the first time. Now I use it on the end and sides of my nose. If you do cut a small square of the strip to use, bend the edge of the plastic back and pull the "part that gets sticky" off before you get your hands wet. Once that strip gets wet you'll never get it off of the plastic in one piece. One thing that I found helpful is.. I wash my face first and use very warm water. I always put the piece of strip on while I have warm water on my skin. Then I rub the strip gently for a few seconds to make sure all of the glue is really being pushed into the pores. I have not had any trouble doing it this way. Also, one strip will last me a month. I use a little piece once a week.

Re: squeezin' blackheads around the nose

Hmm, pore strips. I might give that a whirl. Are they really gross when they do come off, like how the perfect chicks depict in the commericals?

I've always wondered if ordinary tape wouldn't do the same damn thing.

Thanks for your replies everyone.
