Yesterday a small whitehead on my nose came open after a shower and blood came out. I applied pressure to stop it (rather quickly) and all seemed fine. It formed a nice scab and was pretty hard when I went to bed and applied my Duac everywhere.

I just got out of my shower this morning and the same thing happened. There's more white stuff coming out now but I have another concern.

This is the second time it's popped open on its own like this. I DO NOT want a scar on my nose. How can I prevent this?

Those aren't whiteheads. If I'm not mistaken, those are papules if white stuff is coming out. If you're getting papules, I think you should consider BP to prevent new ones. I haven't had any pustules or papules since using benzaclin.

It's tough when you get them on your nose. It's the one place on my face where a lot of my acne is concentrated. I have some bad scarring from popping them with my hands and popping them in the shower. The shower in my bathroom uses a lot of pressure so it was perfect for popping zits. In retrospect, it was a really bonehead thing to do.
