does anyone get these? it's like pin-prick sized dried sebum around your nose area. I get them on my face too. I don't know why this happens so i'm tryin to see if anyone knows. It's like dried oil that is in the pores of your skin and you can just kind of roll them off and they usually leave a tiny hole.

if they're on your nose, have a dark-ish colour, then they're blackheads.

trust me on this one, they're tough to get out. VERY TOUGH.

YES! those damn things. it's like sand size. not even big as rice. Sometimes people get them around the nose but I get them pretty much everywhere.

i don't think they're blackheads, cause they're not black.

Oh my goodness... I'm part half glad someone else is going through the same thing as me, but I'm also half sad for you. What ARE those things?!! I've squeezed them completely out until you can actually see that the pore is empty, washed my skin VERY VERY well, scrubbed and exfoliated my skin, put face masks on, medicine, etc and they still come back! I can't get rid of them though, and I don't know what they are... clogged pores maybe? Anyone out there that can help us? eusa_pray.gif

They're called plugs. It's got parifin-like (wax) stuff and dried keratinized skin held together with sebum. Exfoliate more.

Exfoliate more.

shock.gif I exfoliate everyday... sometimes twice. But, they still keep coming back. I heard that you're not even supposed to exfoliate that often, but I love the way it makes my skin feel so smooth... it just doesn't seem to be helping out with my other problem... eusa_think.gif

ugh...i get those too! that is the cause of my scarred pores. Everytime one of those suckers rolls off, it leaves a hole. I think those started for me after i used tretnoin cream as my skin is not the same anymore. i NEVER had those things before i used that cream 7 years ago. wow, i thought i was like the only one that got those....try explaining those to your derm, they kinda just look at you funny...they had no idea what i was talking about. eusa_wall.gif well, if anyone can figure out what is causes them, please let us know!!!!

I think I have this too. I've also been exfoliating too often sometimes, doesn't seem to help so much.

lol.gif That's like me.... funny thing is, that happens in places where my skin is so smooth and blemish-free looking, too. Weird... I even bought that Igia pore cleanser, you know that thing that's supposed to suction out all of the bad stuff out of your pores? WELL... it didn't seem to be doing anything at all for my face, so one day when I was using a face scrub, I thought... what the heck.. and I wanted to see if it would suck up the little grains in my face scrub... and it didn't, so how then would it be able to get stuff out of my pores? What a piece of junk... doubt.gif
But yeah, my face has come a LONG way, so even though these clogged pore things are sooo annoying, I much rather them anyday then big red pimples on my face. So I guess I should in some sence, feel blessed kind of right now that my face isn't so bad (right now atleast.... it always seems to come back bad out of the blue for no reason though, so I can't be too optimistic)... ya think chemical peels or microdermabrasion would help?
