Not blackheads, sebaceous filaments. There's a pinned topic somewhere about the difference.

But sebaceous filaments are completely normal. If your hormones are overactive, you can produce too much oil over a long period of time, which stretches the pores on your nose and makes them permanently larger. So, sebaceous filaments are quite normal, but yours may be more visible than others because your oil production has been excessive.

Nothing you can do about them except internal treatments that slow your oil production (anti-androgens or Accutane or PDT laser).
