Customer Question
Hi I have blackheads...

Hi I have blackheads everywhere especially on my nose I don't tend to have many break outs I just want to no what's the best regime I can go with

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

No breathing problems. I have been dealing with blackheads on my face for the past ten years My skins not bad I just hate my blackheads I use quinoderm at the minute and it's great but it does not get rid of blackheads. I tried proactive four years ago and it didn't agree with me

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing

Have you seen a dermatologist?

Therapy must be individualized and based on exam.

Proactive is rudamentary.

What has your dermatologist assessed, or have you not had that exam?

I just have blackheads what never seem to go even when I have got them out. I have large pores I did think about using some salvaric face wash as I no this could be good for clearing blackheads up?

You need to see one.

Over the counter treatments are not very effective.

For example, a dermatologist can use lasers treatments.

Or, in terms of medication, vitamin A analogues, such as tretinoin, but these are prescription, and are far more effective than what you have tried.

Chemical peels work but nowhere near as well.

There is also micro derm abrasion [like sanding them off], and extraction [removing them professionally with a special surgical tool].

None of this can you do on your own, they can hide cysts and they can become infected.

I would suggest you make the appointment.

Once they are initially treated, home treatment is much more feasible.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also: Hopefully this helps and I have earned a 5 rating from you today.

Thanks.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
