Basically I have these little white stubs that come out of my pores, mostly the pores on my nose, under my lips, and between my nose and cheeks. I've looked up the garden variety of acne, but never found any real description that fit these. I can easily grab the tip and pull it out of the pore with some tweezers and they don't seem to cause any irritation.
I usually pinch them out of the pores (which has been common practice for me my whole life), but they will always come back. I'm trying to not pinch them out lately, but without my intervention they are becoming more visible. When I get out of the shower and the pores loosen up the stubs are much more viewable, but now that I haven't tend to them they are becoming noticeable at further distances from the mirror at all times of the day.
My assumption is that it is sebum being pushed out of my pores, but that doesn't make sense since it freely comes out of the pore with no blockage. How is it coagulating like this?
Thoughts would be appreciated
