Can you help with large oil glands on the chest?

I really think you should see a good dermatologist as soon as possible.  Often when the pores are enlarging on the chest like you are describing, it’s really a type of acne.  There are so many things that can help control acne now on the face, chest or back!  Treatments for this type of problem range from many different types of lotions/gels, to oral medications all the way up to Accutane.  A  dermatologist can really help you get this under control.  Also, it’s important to control the process before undertaking any corrective cosmetic work.   Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
