    Help! Whiteheads all over forehead!!!

    Can anyone suggest how to rid my forehead of the five billion whiteheads (ok slight exaggeration)? I have been trying Neutrogena Clear Pore treatment (2% salicylic acid) but I really don't think that it is doing anything! It looks horrible...I'm ready to rip the skin right off of my forehead.

    I know what you mean! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif"> I had the same problem on my forehead for several years, then I was prescribed Retin-A Micro, which really seemed to be working to kill those suckers, for months it was completely clear, now BOOM - they're back! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/redface.gif"> Is your skin really oily? Mine is extremely oily and that is the culprit. I just went to the dermatologist today, and she told me to try a birth control pill (like Diane 35), since this is hormonal and it will help to control the oil production (hopefully - fingers crossed). She told me to keep taking the Retin-A Micro. Have you tried this? It could really help you, like it did for me. She also prescribed a cream called Azelex for the morning, and also some pill I already forgot the name of (must go find that sheet she wrote it on). Just what I wanted, a whole slew of new medications! Anyway, all I know is that these damn things are stubborn and *very* hard to get rid of once and for all (for me, anyway). Good luck, and if you do have success with this, please share!

    I tried Differin, but of course, it did not help. I'm back on bcp's but it's only been less than 2 months, so I guess it will take a little longer. I also tried a little baking soda and Cetaphil last night and this morning and it seemed to help. I should keep doing this every morning. grrrr....whiteheads are the worst!!

    Are you using hair products such as pomade or bees wax on your hair? Sometimes when you sweat, or when you apply hair products on your hair, the stuff gets onto your skin, esp. forehead, and could cause your pores to clog. Just a suggestion...
