I should note...That this only happens on my face. The only thing that really help them heal quick is Manuka Honey. I use Wedderspoon 100% Raw Manuka Honey. But even that doesn't seem to help heal the wound fast enough to beat these plugs. It's crazy...It can't be a fungus...There's no way it could materialize that quick...Like overnight.
I have been suffering with this condition for about a year . I have these wounds that open very easily and my scalp feels like silly putty. I also have these gooky white plugs in my pores. And when I get a cut on my head it is like a few centimeters deep and feels like there’s slimy eggs underneath the scab. I have seen these yellow egg like things come to the top of the scab. I have tried to grab them with tweezers but they sound like they crunch. And the wounds on my scalp don’t heal. Pls help me!!!!
8+ years of this and mine is resolved. Please reply if you are taking Propecia or Finiseride. Long story and similar to many - odd twist for me when I ran out of my Finisaride and doc would not renew my Rx until I saw him. 2 weeks without Finisaride and the horrid reproducing plugs are gone - seriously thought I was going crazy - reply if anyone is on either med and we can discuss further. I’ve had a persistent and horrible spot that is mending fast.
What about Fungal? Is it itchy? Apparently, fungus produces a hard covering. (Like an exoskeleton) to protect itself. Perhaps those are the hard white plugs? I have used Ketoconazole BUT my rash is all over and so bad that Ketoconazole helped with 50% of the rash. My face is disfigured from it at this point. I have not had a dermatologist give me the time of day DGS me definitively yet. They just think I have a "picking problem". The fact is I would not be picking if I did not have hard itchy bumps on my body. Worse on my face, shoulders, back and abdomen but I get it in my ears, eyelids..everywhere. I have lost faith in MD's honestly. Hope this helps.
i had this problem as well. last week i had a pimple with no head and i decided to treat it with salicylic acid. see i am aware that salicylic acid may burn the skin and in my case it did since my pimple did not have a head. as a result, the skin came off and i saw white plugs. i tried putting ointments and oils and petroleum jelly but i just kept having the urge to squeeze every white plug or use tweezers to get them out but to no avail, it did not want to get out. so i researched on it and alot said they were keratin plugs and are there because its your body’s response (initial healing) theyre there for a reason so dont try to get them out. before i knew this the open wound would just scab and fall off over and over again and usually the scab was yellow so i thought it was infected. so i tried covering it with a cutout bandaid with a little ointment and after a few days it healed.
