Stubborn Blackheads

Hey ya all. I need some help. My 10 yr old has these stubborn blackheads that are deep and huge when we can get them to pop out. The cores are usually the size of a piece of rice. :shock:

How in the world can we get them out easier before they become so huge I have to take her to the Dr. to get them taken out?

thanks for the help.

If they're that large, definitely go to see a dermatologist for treatment options. It's not good to extract ones that large yourself. It can scar. Ones that are that large can be symptomatic of other types of skin infections that really should be treated by a dermatologist or physician. (Sebaceous cyst, epidermal inclusion cyst, etc).

The dermatologist can recommend products for your child's skin that won't be as comedogenic, and possibly perform some blood tests to determine if hormonal factors might already be at play in having clogged pores so young.
