Is this a blackhead? (photo)
1 year ago
i have been having this spot on my nose for so long. Not sure what this is and just realised that it could be a blackhead. Can you please confirm and help me how to get rid of it? I have never got this on my face before.

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.
