Comedones
An open comedo or blackhead; a mass of hardened sebum and skin ells in a hair follicle. When the follicle is filled with excess of oil, a blackhead forms. It is dark because it exposed to oxygen and oxidizes. Closed comedones do not have a follicular opening and are called milia or whiteheads.
