Question:

Is Finacea (azelaic acid) very effective for blackheads?

Answer:

Azelaic acid (Finacea) is quite effective in most patients that have comedones - blackheads.  Use as directed.  Limit the applications according to the label, and you should have no difficulty.  If you do, you need to see a board certified dermatologist for explanation and choice of anti-acne care.
