  1. I heard those irritate the nose and contain hair spray or something. I'd rather do a long term regimen and get rid of them in a month or two.
  2. I posted a picture below to help you see. My nose is constantly covered in blackheads. I can only get the gunk out of a few if I pick them, and then I'm at risk of inflammation. I've tried basic cleansers with Salicylic Acid and Dan's BP, but they don't have an effect. Do you recommend anything to get rid of these? Thanks.
  3. Update: I managed to get rid of it after over a year. After taking a hot shower, I picked at it, and the next morning, it had become infected, but that actually made it come to a little head, so when I popped it, all of it came out. I then washed it, applied Benzoyl Peroxide, and then AHA+. I'm about positive it's gone now because it's smooth like it was before that bump. I really don't want to waste money for a dermatologist visit just to get rid of this bump, but it's really annoying me. It
  4. Olay foaming facial wash is incredible. I've tried everything - cetaphil, purpose, Neutrogena, all of those big names. So when I ran out of my Neutrogena one day, I decided to take a leap of faith and go for the Olay. It's very moisturizing and your skin feels really clean. And after a week or two, you'll notice your skin is a bit less irritated. Link to the product is below. http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp...ing+facial+wash
  5. Thanks, guys. And yes, I've tried Salicylic Acid and it did nothing. The only thing that kept me 100% clear was Minocycline (antibiotic), but I wasn't going to risk having stomach problems and long term issues for clear skin.
  6. They only look like that when I stretch my chin out. Otherwise they are unnoticeable.
  7. I've had these bumps on my chin for 3-4 years now. If you squeeze them, a white string-like substance comes out. BP and AHA+ couldn't get rid of them. Here is a picture of it: http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/3217/cimg0590i.jpg
  8. Well, looks like it's time to buy more BP. My chin is still red, my skin is very oily, and I have more tiny bumps. I guess I still need it.
  9. When I first started using the Olay wash instead of my Neutrogena bar soap, I saw a dramatic difference anyway. I'll update in a couple days.
  10. Well, it's been about a week now. My chin is a little red in one area, I have a couple of tiny bumps, and I have had a pimple in between my eyebrow area. I don't know if it's coincidence or not. Maybe it's just from shaving.
  11. I came to the realization that we're spending way too much money and time on these products. I've been on BP 2.5% (Dan's) + AHA+ and Olay cleanser for about 3 years now. It's definitely helped, but now, I think I've outgrown the need to use it (I'm 18). So I stopped using it a few days ago. So far, nothing has happened. Olay facial cleanser + AHA (night only) has managed to keep my skin clear. I've also been taking cod liver oil for a couple months now. Perhaps the Vitamin A in the fish oil has
  12. I woke up and my nose was swollen and red in one spot. This afternoon, I checked back and saw that it had come to a small head. I gently squeezed and got rid of the pus and stuff and applied. Tonight it's still as swollen and red, even after washing and applying more BP + AHA. Anything I can do to ease the pain and get rid of this? Thanks.
  13. I agree that it's economical. BP usually lasts me about 4 months and AHA even longer (and I use AHA as my daily moisturizer). I'm simply saying Dan should work with manufacturers to bring costs down a few dollars.
