Hi angela,

Thanks for writing in.

You should not pick blackhead with hands.It can cause scar at the place.
Its better to use comedone extractor.It can express the material without disturbing the collagen lining.
Thus avoiding scarring.You can apply benzoyl peroxide cream over the affected area.

Hope this helps.
