Brief Answer:
Remedy for blackheads

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.

I am Dr. kakkar(Dermatologist). I have noted your concern.
Cosmelite is a prescription medication for treatment of Melanoma/ pigmentation. It should not be used for blackheads. For blackheads I suggest you to use either tretinoin 0.025% cream or adapalene 0.1% gel once every night, however, you cannot use salicylic acid based products along with these. Instead use a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil cleansing lotion for face wash.

Regards
