"They are almost the same as closed comedones, except that the pore has a smaller opening, oxygen cannot get in, and bacteria continues to multiply often forming small whitish bumps under the skin. Same recommendations apply as above."

No, they're not. A non-inflammatory pimple is like a 1-2 mm wide on the skin filled with white puss. Just like an inflamed people, but without the redness. A whitehead, on the other hand, is the same thing as a blackhead, except that it doesn't have the black tip and it lies deeper - what we refer to as under-surface acne.
