Who does it affect?
Anybody has the possibility of developing blackheads at some point in their life. However, blackheads are most prominent in males and females ages 11 to 30. This is a result of the increased hormones that are present during puberty. In adults, blackheads are more prevalent in females because of increased hormones present during pregnancy and menstrual cycles.
How to treat it
Over the counter medicines and skin peels are commonly used to help eliminate unwanted blackheads. However, some people require a professional’s help when their blackhead removal process becomes more complicated. Most doctors have a special tool that can extract the blackhead in a way that won't irritate the skin. Also, laser and light therapy use tiny beams of intense light to help eliminate bacteria and dead skin on the surface of your body. Finally, doctors can prescribe medication that will eliminate bacteria, making it harder for blackheads to form.
