How do I get a very tough blackhead out?

3 ginormous ones, under my nose, tough little beasts that are growing bigger daily beneath the skin. I've heated and pressed them to no avail.

Must get them out as if they infect I can imagine them sucking the rest of my face into the hole.

I'd sterilise a pin and make a little hole to let them out.

This really should be in sporners corner...

Do you have one of those little blackhead tools?

Hot flannel then a needle. Tissue wrapped round fingers.

Leave them alone for a week.
Check they’re really blackheads and not moles

Blackhead removal tools. Life changing for a sporner!

You need to push the skin around it rather than on it IYSWIM

Magnesium sulphate?

Te blackhead removal tool doesn't work.

Steam your face to open the pores before you start.

With a surname like Pimplepopper it was written in the stars they'd become a sporn superstar wink

I think her real name is Dr Sandra Lee if that's the YouTube handle of the Sporner Corner's sweetheart. grin

Head over a basin of boiling water. Steam for ages. They will come out.

TheQueenOfWands Thu 19-Oct-17 00:12:08

Exfoliation and magnesium sulphate paste.

And as a PP said, photos, for Goodness's sake!!

I swear by ingrown hair tweezers for stubborn spots. Superdrug sell fantastic own brand ones. They are amazing for blackheads and whiteheads that won't budge. I use one of the tip ends to very gently pierce the top of the blackhead/whitehead, then squeeze the rest out. Be careful though, the tweezers are very sharp!

My uncle squeezed a blackhead on his toe . He ended up with blood poisoning and at deaths door. He did recover but I urge people to be very careful when squeezing spots etc.

I’m not being silly! I had a mole which I thought was a blackhead. Spent ages trying to evict the bastard then realised what it was.

I'm kind of jealous. envy

I had one recently. I used a muslin to wear away a bit at the surface skin. I"fed" it by using rich creams, and I put spot cream on it. That brought it up.

Salicylic acid (2%) from The Ordinary or Bravura or anywhere really. They'll come up and out in no time.
