Worst of the Worst Gigantic Blackheads

The Most Disgusting Blackheads You Will Ever See

Blog Introduction: Blackheads are a common skin issue that can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender. However, some people have blackheads that are particularly large and difficult to remove. If you’re looking for a good laugh (or maybe just a good cringe), read on to learn about the most disgusting gigantic blackheads from around the world.

The World’s Largest Blackhead

In 2017, Dr. Vikram Yadav—a dermatologist in India—removed what he called the “world’s largest blackhead.” This blackhead was almost an entire inch long! It took Dr. Yadav over 20 minutes to extract it from an unnamed patient’s face, and it took even longer for him to clean out all the gunk inside of it. In case you were wondering, no, this isn’t a record-setting blackhead; there are still larger ones out there!

The Unnamed Man With Giant Blackheads

Back in 2016, an unnamed man went viral after photos of his giant blackheads went public. These photos were taken at a dermatology clinic in China and they show hundreds of large blackheads covering his nose and cheeks. Dermatologists at the clinic used tweezers and extraction tools to carefully get rid of every single one of these giant blackheads without causing any damage to his skin. Thankfully, the man was able to get rid of all of these blackheads without any scarring or permanent damage!

The Woman With Record-Setting Blackheads

In 2015, a woman named Xu Yuhua made headlines when she sought help for her huge blackheads at a hospital in China. Her condition was so severe that doctors said she had “the worst case” they had ever seen! After hours of work and multiple attempts, doctors were eventually able to remove two large blackheads from her face—each one measuring 1 cm by 1 cm! They said that these were some of the largest blackheads they had ever removed before—which is saying something given how many patients they must have seen over the years!


Whether you like them or not, gigantic blackheads are always fascinating (and sometimes disgusting) to look at! While these examples may seem extreme, they serve as reminders that even though it may be tempting to try to pop your own zits or extract your own giant blackheads at home—it’s not recommended unless you’re properly trained in dermatology procedures because improper extraction can lead to permanent scarring or other skin damage. For those with stubbornly large or recurring breakouts, visiting a professional dermatologist is always the safest bet.
