You should try Sporners Corner or what ever it's called. They'll absolutely know what to try.

Have you tried one of those blackhead remover tools, they're like a little metal circle on a stick? Sorry for my terrible description!

Take her to a professional beauty salon and they will remove it.

My ten year old had a couple of blackheads. I bought her a kit of effaclair or whatever it is called her skin is clear and lovely two months on.

Effaclair has really made a difference, I was vvvv skeptical but it has worked.

you need this type of tool or a kirby grip. Or a beautician.

Go on YouTube and watch Dr Pimple Popper. You'll learn the techniques off there.

I didn't say that I squeezed them after a hot bath, clean fingers, I hated doing it it made me nauseous but I did it and was amazed at the size of what came out - 6mm x 2mm ish - I was nearly sick.

Amazing what you can stomach where your child is concerned.

Are you sure it is a blackhead and not a sebaceous filament? Blackheads are normally at the top of the skin, so come out easily with steam and extraction. Sebaceous filaments are normally found round the nose.

Have you tried salicyclic acid toners? They are normally recommended for sebaceous filaments. Nip & Fab have a great teen range. Clearasil also do toner pads and the Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion also contains salicylic acid but is gentle.

Pop it with a blackhead squeezer then pop on some clay face mask to draw out the oil

Get one of those metal things with the holes on the ends from the Body Shop. It's my favourite thing in the world, to go at a teenager's nose and ears with one of those.

It doesn't sound like a blackhead!

Redlocks28 Mon 08-May-17 22:13:51

I think we really need a close up photo!!

If it is a blackhead (and not a sebaceous filament) there will be stuff under it. You want to sequeeze deep to it rather than what you can see, so well behind it.

Ah, the sporners are already here grin

No KLAXON needed then?

Report your thread and ask for it to be moved to Sporners' Corner. You'll be the star turn of the week there whilst also getting the right advice grin

Evilstepmum01 Mon 08-May-17 22:16:25

ProfessorPickles Mon 08-May-17 22:16:43

NevermetaGilesIlike Mon 08-May-17 22:17:23

Is it just me wanting to shout 'just crack the fecker out'?

picklemepopcorn Mon 08-May-17 22:19:36

Sometimes the head gets waxy and stubborn. You need a sterile needle to gently break the top of it. Just a little wiggle in with the tip, not spearing it! Then a hair grip or special tool to gently press around it till it eases out.

WitchDancer Mon 08-May-17 22:21:00

If we don't see pictures, it didn't happen!

All I know is that the best way to pop it is to document it with video/series of images.

Honest. It won't work unless you do.
