Hi ashley try looking into microdermabrasion. Ive had it done in the past and although it didn't help much with acne scars, it did help improve some of the enlarged pores i used to get, by smoothing the skin. Its only a small procedure, not that expensive, but it helps promote collagen. See what your derm has to say anyway.

All the best!

i agree with microdermabrasionv i hate to refer you somewhere else but also ask youre derm about treatments because he/she may specialize in some helpful treatment, good luck! :dance:

I went to several derms asking them the same question. They usually recommend topical retinoids such as Vitamin A cream, Retin-A, or Differin to help keep the pores from developing blackheads and so that the pores will get back to a normal size. If you have the money, you could also try laser treatments like Laser Genesis or IPL.

The best thing is to see a dermatologist and see what he/she says.

is this the same thing where your pores look like they have tiny sebum plugs in it and when you squeeze or pull the plug it leaves a large pore hole open? If it is, I have this on my nose also and I have not found that differin has helped any, nor has any BP product.

What I do right after extractions of any kind (not just on the nose) is I dab rubbing alcohol over the extracted areas. The alcohol disinfects and reduces redness at the same time.
