Hello... are you there?
These are more likely to be whiteheads on your skin.
Clogged pores are the main cause of whiteheads.
Whiteheads are considered a mild form of acne. They’re relatively easy to treat.
A topical retinoid is the first-line treatment for whiteheads. However, topical retinoids take three months to see any effect. They should ideally be used every day (or night).
Topical retinoids are used to prevent acne. They shouldn’t be used as a spot treatment on your pimples. Retinoids work by several mechanisms, but, ultimately, they prevent the pore-clogging process.
You should wear sunscreen daily since your skin will be more sensitive to the sun as a result of using a topical retinoid.
If you have inflammatory acne (red bumps and pustules on your face) your doctor might also prescribe oral or topical antibiotics, which destroy excess skin bacteria and reduce inflammation and redness.
