Spot on the Nose
Thank you for your question. The spot on your nose does not look like a blackhead. It may be an actinic keratosis which is a pre-cancerous spot caused by sun damage. There are many treatments for this. I recommend for you to see a dermatologist to have the area treated. I wish you the best.
