Q: 

what gets rid off white heads on you're nose?

A: I use rubbing alcohol on my face 2 times a week. It really cleans all my pores properly & prevents any type of pimple, just dont rub to hard & be careful near your eyes. Also, if you have a problem area, with a cotton swab add the rubbing alcohol daily to it. At night before bed you can put a bit of toothpaste on the white head & go to sleep, chances are it will be gone by morning. Never use peroxide on your face, it will only irritate & bleach it. All this really works & there is no need to by facial products that can only damage your skin. Only do it 2 times a week, you don''t want to dry out your skin either. Go out and buy Crest Cinnamon Toothpaste. It''ll clear your...


Q: 

Should you open the white head on a ant bite?

A: yes, it will heal quicker personally, I would. I would drain all that crap out of it, if there is a head to it. Wash it really good with soap and water, before and after. Then use some peroxide , and maybe even some Neosporin on it. Sure, it''s not going to hurt anything. Clean it up with Hydrogen Peroxide, after wards. white head?!! what kinda ant did you get bitten by? i would leave it alone thats always your best bet. instead put some antibiotical cream on a bandaid and then place that over the bite, this should draw the stuff out of it. With any ant bite the venom of the ant has been introduced to the body once he bites you. If you can brush ants off before they bite then this is a good method of preventing the red bumps and the...

A: use Proactive sh*t works! this gets the infection out I don''t know how big is the white head like spot on your face. I assume that you''re always pricking it that''s why blood comes out. Don''t prick it, it might get infected. Seek consult to your dermatologist so your skin problem won''t get big. Remember, your face is very important. It''s what you wear!other than that, any infection on the face, especially on the dangerous zone area near your nose could spread to the brain. From what I understand, it probably is just a white head. Lots of times there will be the pit of the pimple, which is solid, then a fluid that is from the irritation. Then, if you try too hard...

Q: 

Penis "white heads"

A: Hello Kumar, Without actually seeing the "white heads" you describe, it is difficult to know what you might have. It does sound like you have the normal anatomic condition known as "pearly penile papules."  You may conduct a Google/image search to see images online to see how these compare with yours. They are absolutely normal, however many men do not have them. It is more common among those who still have foreskins. Good luck! --mark  ...

Q: 

what is good for white heads on face?

Underneath sweat pores are sebaceous glands that produce sebum, which is a protective, oily substance. Sometimes, a pore may get blocked by dead skin cells that do not fall away from the skin. The sebaceous gland underneath the pore continues to produce sebum, and the resulting build up forms a pimple. Sometimes, such build ups may also collect bacteria and there may be an infection and inflammation. There is a lot of interchangeability and some confusion as to the names, but a pimple that does not have bacterial infection is usually what is considered to be a
