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.
