hard white thing sticking out of my pores.

I have hard whitish things sticking out of my pores on my nose, cheeks, chin and my jawline. ‎​​I hav beenn searching the web for answers but to no avail. On my cheeks, they are soft but on my jawline, they stick out like small hard white hairs. ‎​​I try to press them out without hurting my skin but that's ‎​​so impossible because they are under all my pores ‎​​so my pores look swollen and raised. Pls let me know if you find out anything. I have tried all sorts from skin cleansers to scrubs to masks n even wipes. But nothing helps.

Hello,
It looks like clogged pores or small cysts. The best way to prevent them is to avoid treating your skin with excessively harsh chemicals and to limit sun exposure. Also use good quality cosmetics and exfoliate your skin regularly. If still the symptoms persist then please get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Do you have cold sores or the herpes virus? Cold sores can transfer from the infected area to your face. Cold sores tingle and then get very itchy, then once scratched get very sore.
