I have small hard white pimples on my face and some on my legs, what are they and how do I get rid of them?

A: Information on white pimple From your description it sounds like you have what is known as milia. Milia are cysts that are filled with keratin.

what is good for white heads on face?

A: Remedies for white heads A whitehead is basically a pimple — a sweat pore that has been blocked. 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.

what is a great way to get rid of black heads and acne?

A: I can only tell you from my experience with severe acne several years ago: 1) Proactiv became too harsh after a few weeks and I developed a red, puffy reaction to it. But I liked their sulfur mask, it really helped. 2) Murad (3-in-1) is a lot better and gentler. 3) Do not use Panoxybar. Just like Proactiv and most other acne products, it''s very very very high in acid or alcohol and can make your face dry and sting very badly if you have acne. It''s not just about nuking the zits, it''s about healing the tunnels they create under your skin. 4) Don''t squeeze or pick, the reason is that picking causes scarring, pain, and distress. Squeezing an acne allows it to spread bacteria in and under the surface of your skin,...

little white pimple looking bumps on penis

A: Its hard to tell by what you are describing but it sounds like it might be genital warts. Mr. Hippo, I believe it is time to pay a visit to the doctor.
