White plugs on the nose


This is my 41th day of accutane. Recently, my dosage is increased from 20mg to 40mg and i started to notice TONS of white plugs (dunno what it is called) coming out of the pores on my nose. If i use my fingernails to clip on the head of protruding plug and pull, the whole thing will come out.

Does anyone know what are these?(white heads??) Should i extract them out? How long will these usually last? :think:

Extract them, yes, I think they're just black heads. I'm almost finished and still get some.

They are just comedoes and sebaceous filiments coming out. Thaty happened duting my first month....not just on my nose...all over my face...that was my initial breakout.....it was like thousands of grains of sand coming out of my pores....none were inflamed at all.....

It's a sign that it's doing it's magic........
