What is a dilated pore?
A dilated pore is a skin condition that sprouts a bulging, open comedo that usually appears dark brown or black in color. They are typically non-threatening, but can easily make someone feel self-conscious of their skin. While they can be found on nearly any part of the body, dilated pores are most often found on the face, either on the midface, upper lip, or forehead. If a dilated pore is present on your skin, the surrounding dermis will likely not be inflamed or irritated unlike with acne.
How is a dilated pore formed?
While it isn’t known exactly how dilated pores are formed, their formation is similar in nature to cystic acne conditions. One factor that may be linked as a trigger to their formation is a bacterial infection or an obstruction of the follicle.
Who gets dilated pores?
In terms of gender, age, or ethnicity, virtually anyone can develop a dilated pore. It has been observed that white males over the age of 40 have developed dilated pores more than other demographics.
Can dilated pores be prevented?
Practicing good skin care habits may be an optimal way to prevent the formation of dilated pores among other skin conditions. If you notice a dilated pore in your skin, it is best to avoid picking at the afflicted area. Doing so could result in the dilated pore to become irritated or infected.
