I have been putting 2% salicylic acid on my nose and cheek area for about 3 days now and I already have 4 small whiteheads in the area. Are these former blackheads turning into whiteheads (healing because of the pus?) or are these just new break outs??

Apparently the way to exterminate blackheads is throguh the use of salicylic acid, but with the correct pH. I'm using a Clean and Clear one and I don't believe it is the right pH. Gossmakeupartist on Youtube insists that corrct pH for salicylic acid is crucial. I'm using a gel one. After being on Accutane, my blackheads did not leave my face and have been on my face pre accutane and post accutane :(

 

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <33

I would like to say they do, but i am not sure. For me atleast i think they do. Like a few weeks ago i had a big dark spot under my chin.after a few days it turned into 2puss filled pimples.

Since I started using a drugstore salycilic acid on my blackheads, two of the bigger ones turned into big pimples. Honestly I'd rather have the blackheads than deal with the pimples. :/
