I have heard a lot about black heads but recently came to know about whiteheads. What is the difference between blackheads and whiteheads? Are the treatments to remove them different?

Blackheads are referred to as `open comedones`, because they remain open on the top part of the skin. Since the contents of the follicle are exposed to the air the debris inside the follicle oxidizes and becomes darker in appearance thus the name ?blackhead?. Whiteheads are referred to as `closed comedones`, because the follicle is completely plugged so that its contents are not exposed to the air. The oil and debris trapped inside the pore remains a whitish colour which is why they are referred to as whiteheads.

Whiteheads are a form of acne caused by skin pores clogged with trapped dirt, sebum and dead skin.
