Hello. I used to have acne on my skin for which i used acne creams, one of which was 'Acnecure'. Currently, I do not have much acne, but my skin is very oily and there are tiny holes on the face on the cheek area below the eyes on both sides which are visible, or enlarged pores, as I have read on the internet. What should I do to cure these large pores? They look bad on the face and the face looks scarred because of them.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

The problem of enlarged pores on face or facial pores is commonly associated with excessive oiliness and acne. The excessive oiliness of the skin is in turn triggered by the hormonal changes in the body.

Large pores can be easily dealt with proper cleansing and frequent toning and moisturizing of the skin. Other treatments to consider include microdermabrasion, skin resurfacing lasers and chemical skin peels.

For this you need to consult a dermatologist.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
