Re: Whiteheads
Feb 10, 2006
I generally try not to pop any acne cause it usually makes things worse. But in the case of whiteheads, I try to find a way to get rid of the white puss since it's much more noticeable than a red swelling. What I do is wash with an exfoliating scrub. If that doesn't break the skin and wash out the puss, I then take a pin and gently scoop out the puss (disgusting, I know). If that's not possible, I then resort to gently squeezing out the puss. But if it feels like I'm only making the whole thing swell, I just stop. I'll wash again with exfoliating soap hoping that it'll wash out the puss now that I broke the skin with the pin. And for whiteheads on my cheeks and chin, well I just take advantage of being male and shave my face. :)
