Patient :I had a blackhead on my face (a few cm below eye and across nose) and I tried to use the blackhead tool remover. Because of this the blackhead is now a bit swollen and is red around. There are also what appears to be small dents in my skin (which may have been caused by the blackhead remover) and hurts a little when washing around that area. Can I use pore strips on the blackheads? If not what can I do to cure this and the little dent around my blackhead?
Symptoms: A bit of pain, blackhead with redness around

Kindly visit your dermatologist.
