How Can Whiteheads On The Nose Be Treated?

I have two or three white head pimples in one nostril toward the base of the nose where it meets my upper lip. my nose is tender to the touch on the outside above where the pimples are. I have been susceptible to ingrown nose hairs for many years, about 40, since an experience in my late 20's, but I do not recall ever seeing the whitehead pimples that are there now.

Hi,

If the white heads are very few, you could go for cream and oral medicines are usually not required. Whiteheads are usually treated with Adapalene and Clindamycin combination cream.

These creams, if not applied properly, it can cause irritation. So, please do consult your dermatologist for confirming the diagnosis and for initiating the treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
