Breasts with visible/clogged pores :(

Okay this is really embarrasing me and is a huge probkem for me.
The skin pores on my breasts especially around my nipples are all clogged up. Like if i pinch them its like a blackhead comming out, this means they are also very easy to see , all small dark spots. Anyone have a similar problem and/or know how to clean it up? I really dont want to use normal hormone or acid zit creams there, but this is really freaking me out. Can it be a reaction to my underwear? Please reply if you have any ideas.

I have the same thong but around my nipples also. For the bumps around your nipples they are just milk lactation build-up, it's actually pretty common. The best way I found to help reduce the look was just exfoliating a little bit. Not too hard tho cuz then they get really tender and sore. Really hope this helps

Exfoliate? With like facial scrub or sugar bodyscrub? Or do you mean a sponge? I havent tried it yet as i thought it might make it worse, but i can see how it ciuld work if im carefull. I haven't had any children, so mine can't be lactation related.

I have had a few under my breasts too, like where the bra rests. They were swollen and red and hurt when i wore a bra. I had to try and empty them. And my bras didnt hurt then. But i kinda still have a mark/scar or maybe the pore is still infected.

I have those too. Sometimes they break out bad other times not so much. I just watch what soaps I use and let air get to them as much as possible likr I only wear a bra whn Im going outside or sumwhere. Because your pores mite just be clogged up.

I agree with soccergirl19. Those facing this issue after breast feeding or whiteheads may want to consult the Ob/Gyn or a 24/7 nurses help hotline. The women in particularly who are experiencing blackheads may try a gentle exfoliant such as an acne cleanse with mirco-scrubbing agents. I hope all goes well. Please let the forum know how this works for you, positively or otherwise.

I will try and find a face exfoliate for skin with acne. Need to try and see i guess, was just unsure if those were too strong. Any suggestions on brands?

Proactive body wash works. Or any kind of acne body wash. I wouldnt use anything thay has beads in it. It might irritate the skin
