Will anything "clean" my pores? (Nose)

Recommended Posts

I have large pores on my nose, and they seem to fill up with something pretty often, and fairly quickly (1~4 days). If I squeeze the pore, a white-tan string comes out, and the pore looks "clear" again (but still large), but when its filled, the pore looks enlarged, and the stuff inside looks dark. I assume these are blackheads? Is there anything I can do to clear these out other then squeezing, and can anything keep the pores from filling up again? I use Retin-A 0.025% over night, and it seems to help a bit, and I wash my face no more then twice a day. I apply "Moisturel" lotion to my face in the morning after I wash it with a gentle, vegetable based, MSM containing bar soap.

I don't like squeezing because, well it hurts, and it often requires so much pressure that it makes my skin red and irritated.
