  • It's a blackhead, Dear. Don't worry about it. The pore gets clogged and the top part, closest to the air, turns dark, while the 'core' which is further beneath the skin remains light colored. You may want to use an astringent in that area to keep the oil down, see a dermatologist if it doesn't improve or if it is particularly bothersome. Most of all, don't worry -- it's very common. Be well, Dear! - Mary N.
