those dried sebum on your nose

Recommended Posts

does anyone get these? it's like pin-prick sized dried sebum around your nose area. I get them on my face too. I don't know why this happens so i'm tryin to see if anyone knows. It's like dried oil that is in the pores of your skin and you can just kind of roll them off and they usually leave a tiny hole.

if they're on your nose, have a dark-ish colour, then they're blackheads.

trust me on this one, they're tough to get out. VERY TOUGH.

so far, I haven't had any luck.

YES! those damn things. it's like sand size. not even big as rice. Sometimes people get them around the nose but I get them pretty much everywhere.

i don't think they're blackheads, cause they're not black.

ugh...i get those too!  that is the cause of my scarred pores.  Everytime one of those suckers rolls off, it leaves a hole.  I think those started for me after i used tretnoin cream as my skin is not the same anymore.  i NEVER had those things before i used that cream 7 years ago.  wow, i thought i was like the only one that got those....try explaining those to your derm, they kinda just look at you funny...they had no idea what i was talking about.  eusa_wall.gif  well, if anyone can figure out what is causes them, please let us know!!!!

we are all talking about the same thing

they aren't blackheads

none of us know how to get rid of them.. permanently.

I have both the plugs and blackheads on my nose. i went on mino a while back to clear up my acne, before stating on it i squeezed everything out of my nose. the mino did nothing for the rest of my face, but the plugs and blackheads stayed away biggrin.gif . about 3 months ago the mino stopped having an affect and the plugs have come with avengance cry.gif i want to try it again, hoping it'd work once more, at least for a little while. theres almost more surface area on my nose taken up by the plugs than by skin

while i look for a permanent solution, i need a quick fix that is easier on my skin than sqeezing with my fingers. do those pore strips pull them out?

I use to get those and squeeze me nose tonnes and now i have like diff colours skin texture on my nose... there are a few things ive done that have been quite effective...

Pore strips... but not just any, you want the ones from biore... they really suck them all out and clear your nose completely... but then you have lil empty pores on your nose, so you should like get ice and run it over to close up all the pores. This is probably the best thing ive ever used for my acne... it really suck the crud out of your nose and hurts to take off, but when you do and when you look at the adhesive pad you itll disgust you.

Exfoliating helps also, but it didnt really seem to work that well for me... i use to scrub them in the shower and it wouldnt get rid of them but they'd be less bumpy and my nose would feel smooth

I think differin might help also... cause last week i squeezed em all out and now i havent got any back... and i only just started using differin cream this week... its suppose to stop pores from clogging ? so it might have an effect

Anyways like i said probably the best thing to do is go out and buy some Biore Pore Strips, you'll see instant results... the only reason i stopped was because i needed to use it every 3-4 days and i couldnt afford going to the shops just buying nose strips tongue.gif
