I stab my armpit to get the blackheads with a needle when I was 11 yrs old. I don't know yet the possibility of containing germs in the needle i used. Now I had bump in it with a hole where blackheads coming out. What is it, and does it have any remedy?

Blackheads are a result of clogged pores on the skin. Scrubbing them or popping them in an improper manner results in scars. In the case of blackheads on the nose, rubbing them hard with a wash cloth every night with hot water helps. Avoid usage of expired and unbranded cosmetics in makeup. Improperly used needles for popping them aggravates infection. Acne or pimples develop in course of time. Visit to a parlor is recommended, as experts extract blackheads in a simple manner. Crushed garlic cloves placed on the affected area helps. Mint juice proves beneficial against all forms of skin issues, namely, acne, blackheads, eczema and pimples. Two teaspoons of baking soda is boiled in three cups of water. A towel is placed over the steam and kept on the affected area. Topically placing strawberry leaves decreases the inflammation in the surrounding the area. Visit a dermatologist for further guidance. A wash with warm water, preceded by rubbing with a lemon rind is effective against acne and blackheads. A healthy lifestyle with a strict dietary regimen also helps.
