I have a lot of clogged pores and blackheads. I am 2 weeks post op. My nose hurts when i touch it and it is very swollen. Can i use an exfoliate like st Ives to clean my skin?

It's best to check with your surgeon as he will know your progress.  In most cases, gently scrubbing with St. Ives cleanser is permitted.  Be gentle!
