Customer Question

I am 28 years old. I get blackheads all over my breasts (which are quite large). This has gone on since I hit puberty and I assumed it would clear up on its own. But it hasn''t done. When I pop the blackheads, inky material comes out, or sometimes just normal white head puss. I wash my breasts thoroughly but it doesn''t seem to help.

Hello,
Greetings,

As you are aware that there are 2 types of acne . Black heads & whiteheads. Black head discharge may be inky due to the melanin pigment of the skin & its oxidation products. Acne may continue though by your age it becomes gradually less. Gentle washing with mild soap is helpful . Vigorous washing is not necessary. Other treatments like that of benzoyl peroxide, tretinoin, accutane or antibiotics remain the same. You should consult a dermatologist & take a planned treatment.You can read this website for more information.

Hope your recovery soon.
Regards.
