Blackheads - Symptoms & Treatment

The other name of Blackheads is open comedones, skin coloured are flat, darkened spots that form when pores become clogged with a mixture of sebum (or oil) and dead skin cells.. there are two types of blackheads. Open comedones are blackheads; black because of surface pigment (melanin) rather than dirt. Closed comedones are whiteheads; the follicle is completely blocked blackheads are very hard to prevent because of the skin's constant sebum production and cell turnover. Blackheads are not caused by dirt on the surface of the skin, and oil on the surface of the skin usually does no harm.

Symptoms of Blackheads

Blackheads and whiteheads are a combination of oils, sebum and cellular fragments that form firm to hard plugs within hair follicles.  Blackheads are open to the skin's surface and become darkened at the surface by exposure to oxygen (oxidation). They are called open comedones (or comedo, singular).  Whiteheads are closed from the skin's surface by cellular debris at the follicle opening.  Because they are closed from oxygen they do not oxidize or turn brown.  They form a light or yellow-white lump and are called milia (or milium, singular).  When bacteria is added to these plugs, the condition can lead to acne.
