Doesn't matter how you call it, it's still acne. Blackhead, whitehead, "sebaceous filament"; whether smaller, bigger, darker, lighter, open or closed...
The pore is still clogged. Nobody tell me that's how healthy skin is supposed to look like. The plug is not supposed to be there (nott!! no no!)
If most people have this, most people have acne to some degree then
Well said, this thread has just reminded me why I stopped visiting this forum.......

I just squeeze them out, and the next day, my nose is full of them again. If it is just sebum without and sign of bacteria formation, then perhaps it would be best to just neutralise the sebum and break up the fatty acids holding the sebum together.
I use this mandelic acid peel which has triethnolamine in it. Surprinsingly, everytime I use it and leave it on my face for the whole day, my plugs disaapear.
I did some reseach on triethnolamine:
Triethanolamine is used primarily as an emulsifier and surfactant. It is a common ingredient in formulations used for both industrial and consumer products. The triethanolamine neutralises fatty acids, adjusts and buffers the pH, and solubilises oils and other ingredients that are not completely soluble in water.
