    Default Rice grain like plugs coming out of pores on the nose

    Does anybody else have this?

    Almost every pore on my nose is either a blackhead OR is this grain like plug of sebum coming out from the pore.

    The only effective way I found to get rid of them is to tweeze them out with tweezers.

    I can't use anything harsh on my skin to remove them because I was diagnosed with Seb. Derm. and Rosacea, so anything I could try to use topically to remove them would kill my sensitive skin.

    Are these plugs related to any sort of disease or bacteria overgrowth?

    Any info would be much appreciated!

    It sounds like they're plain old sebum plugs/blackheads. My skin is as sensitive now as it's ever been, but I've been able to use Neutragena's Retinol Night Cream every other night without an issue. Retinols are good at exfoliating, so that may help the blackheads.

    I'd recommend starting by applying the cream only every 2 or 3 nights if you do try it, then working up.

    Try an over the counter antifungal... could be ringworm.

    To the OP - YES I have exactly this issue! And I have often wondered just exactly how it fits in to the overall 'puzzle'. Exfoliator is a no-no (for me) because it worsens general background redness and spider veins....

    I look forward to reading the link in this thread.....
