Blackheads on my chest leaving dark scars

  • 4 years ago

I am a Black woman and I get blackheads on my chest (below the breast). I start using OTC acne creams, however, I have these small black scars all over. I was wondering what would be the best method to improve these little scars.

how to get rid of blackheads ?

Please contact a dermatologist and see what type of skin you have. I is very important to know your vitamins level, you diet errors and more

Hi,

IMHO, it sounds like you're experiencing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Either that or you've got visible large pores.

Here's some info. that will hopefully help you in either case:

How do I get rid of blackheads?

How do I reduce large pores and prevent dark spots from acne?

Best acne hyperpigmentation treatment?

Will Triluma work for dark spots?

How can I minimize pores?

I also encourage you to seek a consultation with a board certified dermatologist who has experience treating African American skin. It's much easier to solve a skin problem when you know EXACTLY what the problem is and you've got a professional in your corner to help you get treatment right the first time, instead of wasting time, money and energy on a bunch of OTC products that may or may not help you.

Good luck, and please let me know if this info. helped you at all!

Best,
April
