Hm.. I think what I meant was that if you are familiar with the term, "strawberry nose" you'll know what I mean. They are like tiny little pores that seems to be clogged, they look a little black but not noticeably. Instead of having them on my nose, I have them on the both sides of my cheek.

Could then be a slightly open pore, or a scarred pore.

ok Ive never heard that term before but its a perfect way to describe some of my skin around my nose and stuff... except none of my are black?

How do ya get rid of them?

Seconded. I get exactly the same thing on my nose. I don't think they are true blackheads, but they are somewhat irritating.

My Regimen

Sebamed Everyday Shampoo and Jason Natural Jojoba Conditioner for hair, followed by Sebamed Cleansing Bar for the skin.

Avoid: dairy, eggs, millet, cashews (intolerances); pork and shellfish (religion)
