Need Help With Nose Pore--What Is This?

6 posts in this topic

My face has been pretty clear for about a year now. Yeah I get little pimples here and there, and my nose still gets clogged but I steam and use an extractor which really helps.

My only big issue is that I have right in the middle of my nose two deep scar/clogged pores. They are not blackheads really... sort of skincolor/whiteish a bit. It bumps out a bit and looks a little tight on the skin.not SO horrible after how my skin use to look, but its annoying and large.

I've steamed and cleared it a couple times. It's very stubborn! Even being gentle I have a scab afterwards because of all the pushing. If it comes out it's always yellowish/white and leaves a large hole (about the size of a needle point) and then a week later it comes back small and then gets bigger! I have no idea if its a large pore (wasn't there until 4 months ago) or a scar that just fills in??

What do I do about this because my skin is basically clear so I have no idea what can be causing it?

Yer i dont know what it is but i have the same thing, i think i might get it checked out because I have heard of similar cases when it is actually type of skin cancer that has to be cut out. :/

Maybe a sebacous gland hyperplasia? I have 2 of them on my nose and they are so stubborn. I will have them removed via laser some day.
