Words from our in House Expert:

dr.-dave-bordered.jpgDr. Dave States: This annoying problem can be from many different forms of irritation.  Could be consistent rubbing on the area where the pore gets irritated.  It also can come from internally from too much toxicity, therefore a good cleanse is in order.  Also too many bad oils in the diet is another reason for this to happen.  Cleaning, drying, and pulling the heat out of the area with terramin clay or other oitments that will pull the irritation out of the skin.
