  • Let me at it! LOL! I'd say wash the area well with something antibacterial,squeeze with cotton wrapped fingers,and clean up up well after you get the crap out.

  • Use a blackhead remover like this one: 



    I got one at Target a while back.  It works, but you have to keep it and your skin very clean so you don't get an infection.

  • I've popped them on occasion if they are bothering me. However. I didn't know they had a black head remover. Gonna check in to that.

  • it's best to do only if you know the correct extracting proceedures, and do it with the proper tools that are properly cleaned.
