Does anyone have a magic remedy for teens with numerous blackheads in their ears, please?

You can buy blackhead tools off ebay or amazon. Get them to soak in a hot bath then go to town with the tool. Used to do it all the time with my eldest! Grin

Hi my son had this issue and we eventually saw a dermatologist who recommended adapalene (differin). The GP prescribes it now and it works Iike a dream. I found all the tools to be ineffective as they were always ina hard to reach place!

Soap to dry the oil from the surface of the skin then apply a blob of peel off blackhead removing mask with a finger.
Alternatively soften and then remove with blackhead tool or the fold of a hair grip.

So glad my brood have outgrown this now!

I did actually buy a blackhead removal kit - but it is very difficult to extract any - they seem extremely stubborn plus it hurts and the teens are not keen at all Confused
I was hoping for some sort of miracle cream!
