Large, deep pores that continually 'refill' with smelly stuff

Any suggestions what I can do to remedy these issues?

The other ones on your face just sound like a clogged pore that was clogged for a very long time. The exudate smelled that way due to the bacteria that were in the sebum and dead skin cells. A gentle routine of exfoliation either mechanical or chemical can help greatly with reducing the occurence of clogged pores. THe baby's hair brush method (yes, sounds silly, but it works!) is a terrific method when done GENTLY!!! Please see my signature for the link to the original thread about the baby's hair brush method. There are many different types of chemical exfoliants: glycolic acid, salicylic acid, mandelic acid, retinoids, etc. I myself like glycolic and salicylic and retinoids. Do a bit of reading and discover which ones might work the best for your own particular skin type.

Thank you both for the replies!!! I'm guessing my regular physician wouldn't handle something like this, so I'll look into making an appointment with a dermatologist perhaps?
