Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Blackheads occur when the oil glands and hair follicles become inflamed. This condition is actually mild and often improves with good skin care at home. Usually, in the medical field, the treatment of blackheads can be done in several ways, namely by extracting blackheads, applying creams, chemical peels, to lasers.
Squeezing blackheads forcibly, especially using nails that are not guaranteed to be clean can cause inflammation of the skin where blackheads appear. This inflammation, in addition to appearing due to irritation, can also be caused by a secondary infection due to the entry of bacteria through the open pores after squeezing the blackheads. The dark marks you're experiencing may be part of the post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation caused by your previous actions.
The ointment you mention contains the active composition of bacitracin, lidocaine, neomycin sulfate, and polymyxin B sulfate which play a role in overcoming bacterial infections, reducing pain and inflammation. This ointment does not directly work to remove dry scars and blackness of the skin.
It needs to be clarified first, did you get the ointment after going through a doctor's examination? Or given directly by the pharmacy without a doctor's examination first? If you have not undergone a doctor's examination, you should not use the ointment first and first check your complaints with the doctor. That way, it can be assessed whether there are certain medical conditions that require special treatment. The ointment you mention is not an over-the-counter drug, so it is only safe when used under the supervision of a doctor.
For initial treatment, you should no longer force blackheads on your skin. Also avoid forcibly exfoliating dry and black skin. Wash your face regularly 2 times a day using a cleansing soap that contains salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Protect your skin from overexposure to the sun, especially between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Avoid excessive stress, drink plenty of water, eat vegetables, and fruits.
Hope it helps ya..
