Curejoy Expert Janardhana Hebbar Explains:

A closed comedo is a whitehead, while an open comedo is a blackhead. A comedo is a widened hair follicle which is filled with skin debris (keratin squamae), bacteria and oil (sebum). But despite their name, some blackheads can be yellowish in color.

Many people believe that if your skin is not cleaned properly more blackheads can appear, especially during periods of during other fluctuating hormone levels such as puberty or just before menstruation. However, this a myth. The National Health Service in the UK explains that most biological reactions that trigger acne do not occur on the surface of the skin, but beneath it.

Dona J Miller the word "preiod" has been used differntly and we guess its an editing error. Read "especially during periods of during other fluctuating hormone levels" - should have read "especially during periods of fluctuating hormone levels"! :) Thanks for pointing that out.
