He had 2 for over a month right on him nose. I tried to bring one to" the surface" by steaming it and then I gave alittle squeeze and that resulted in a HUGE zit!
He thought it was so cool, it was funny. He was like "I really like my zit."

Anyways, now he still has another one and it has not budged. Can I do anything to get rid of it?

I'd leave it alone, picking at your face can leave pits and scars and stretched out gaping pores, which then just get even BIGGER blackheads in them.

If it's staring at you and really bugging you maybe try the pore strips from Biore?

My little brother had white heads on his nose as a kid and man my sister and I were relentless. I feel bad.

Yeah, it just is odd they have been there forever. I can leave them be but I was just thinking the other night how they have been there for months and wondered if there was a trick to get them to go away.

maybe a little bit of diluted tea tree oil?
my DH had one that was driving me nuts, but after he picked at it it became a HUGE bruised sore, i felt so bad for suggesting that he do anything about it. and after the bruising went away, the blackhead was still there! so i suggested he use some tea tree oil and that helped.

the pore strips work wonders. ive tried a couple of brands over the years and they work great.
how about taking him to an estition at a school near you?
