In Topic: Clogged Pores On Chest

27 March 2013 - 06:15 PM

Go ahead and try it, just monitor the sensitivity... if it starts looking red and irritated and feeling more raw than normal, then ease back. Chest skin is usually tougher than the face so probably shouldn't hurt too much. 



I get them in the same area and it's like the T zone of my chest, the pores are dilated and there is a super micro comedone/blackhead in almost every little pore. Scrubbing and neutrogena body wash doesn't really do anything for me. I even tried some of the skin solutions 20% salicylic acid gel and it barely makes a difference because none of that can seem to keep up with the constant sebum production of my messed up body. It just pumps is out continuously.

not yet but I'm getting near the end of my rope so it'll probably be in my near future...with my luck though, they'll just be like "well everything appears normal on the blood tests, go see a derm and get some topicals bla bla"

my experience with spots that are 'empty' yet still leave a hardened lump like that seems to be that they can take time to go back down/away, obviously do not pick at it... don't be tempted to try squeezing like I always was to see if there's only still a lump there because there's something inside of it.

I've had some that have stayed for quite a while unfortunately especially on my back, as well as one on my jawline that I seem to remember being very persistent,  all I can say is time will heal it but you really can't touch it and keep prodding at it or it might not budge

i wouldn't put much on it besides the occasional spot treatment product just to keep it dry and clean and whatnot...i see it like if the spot thinks it's still irritated it won't want to get rid of that excess tissue or inflammation that it created to deal with the infection/pimple, so best to leave it alone for the most part

I also get this as my main problem and it's kind of all over my face, some areas worse than others. It can look like I have clear skin is some photos but up close and in the right kind of lighting...gross. It reveals all the little clogs and and tiny scars from picking at these over the years. I can especially see it all when I stretch out the skin in an area.

I've become an expert at extracting them myself without doing too much harm but no matter what I try or do, they don't seem to want to stop forming.
