Spot won't go away

Hi. I currently have a big whitehead by my eyebrow that I can't seem to get rid of with my usual teatree oil once a day. I've had it for over 2 weeks. It may be hormone related as my hormones have been out of balance. I have a history of acne, but not particularly bad now. Are there any other home remedies to get rid of it?

Re: Spot won't go away

Dear Lara,

thank you for your question. Try benzoyl peroxide wash over the counter but it sounds like you may need to see your dermatologist or GP for a prolonged course of an antibiotic and Epiduo gel.

I hope this is helpful.
With Best Wishes,

Hi Lara

It would appear that you have a persistent comedone. It may need hyphrecation if it does not respond to simple measures as suggested by my colleague.

Best wishes
