hi, i am 41 years old, male. Until now i still develop white heads or tiny white granules in my my shoulders, arms, torso down to my *** cheek, my scalp, and sometimes my face... I habitually remove these granule by my nails (becoming my manirism) and they are easily extracted. I can detect their locations through its roughness on the surface of the skin.
Are these kind of pimples, but there are no early signs of pimples are detected. When I feel my skin rough and slide my nails in it, I can easily extract the tiny white granules. How can I get rid of these?
Stop extracting these whiteheads with your nails. This is spreading bacteria under the skin and causing more breakouts. It will also lead to scarring. Use Clinique's anti-bacterial soap and Blemish Solutions Chest and Back Spray. Also use a body scrub to exfoliate your skin. Loiloi xx
