They may not be whiteheads. They may be little fat deposits. If they are truly very white then that is what they probably are, better not touch them until your doctor has diagnosed which they are. They won't go away like a white head and have to be treated differently. (03/09/2009)

I really recommend proactiv. I am 25 and have a horrible acne problem around my period- proactiv really seems to cut down on my white and black heads. (03/09/2009)

If they are under the skin they are probably calcium deposits, talk to your doctor (03/11/2009)

Could be a virus called Molluscum as well. If they are really hard, she may have to open the skin with a disinfected needle to remove them. My son had a molluscum infection that he got from a friend and it stuck around until he got a cold, at which point his immune system got rid of it. I actually got some on my eyelids that my opthamologist scraped off for me. Very irritating. Another treatment for molluscum is to freeze them off, but this is best done by a doctor. Get a correct diagnosis before proceeding.

Whiteheads can be from a diet lacking in citrus/vitamin C or poor skin care. Have your daughter use a mild cleanser (non drying) twice a day, and a clay based mask one to two times a week to exfoliate the skin. Be sure to use a balancing moisturizer for her skin type. Treating irritated spots with Tea Tree oil can help dry them out too. Or sleep with a spot of the clay mask on the spot if they are more isolated. (06/26/2009)
