I get the occassional white head on my face. Someone at work told me it was high cholestrol causing it. I dont get them often and when I do I ***** them with a pin and a hard white ball comes out. I'm also allergic to lanolin so it could be that, but I'm careful what I use, and lanolin usually gives me blisters not white spots.what's your skin type oily / normal / dry?
From the symptoms it can be due to milia. They are white pimples that occur mostly on the upper cheeks, nose and chin. The best way to prevent milia 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 chemical peeling or laser removal can be done.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
I get some of these from time to time. Apparently I was told high Calcium in my body causes this. But I noticed when I used eye creams etc. they seemed to appear after awhile, as well. They aren't like a white head, but look like one. The doctor who told me this also popped it with a pin & got the little white hard ball out. So I have had to use a sterilized pin to do this if my nails can't get it out. It hurts for sure, but heals with no scaring. Be gentle, and careful.
