Hard bumps on face

Ever since high school, I've remembered getting zits and these hard bumps on my face.  These hard bumps don't fill with white pus or turn soft.  Nevertheless, I can pop them still.  What I've come to find is that these bumps are actually filled with hard, yellow, clear, and oily deposits.  They have a definitive elliptical shape.  One of the ends is on the surface of the skin and makes the area painful to touch.  When I pop these hard bumps, the oily deposit comes out as a whole and usually leaves a tiny hole on my face.  No pus or blood comes out of these holes and they heal in a day or two.

Does anyone have any idea what these are?  I don't think they are just oil deposits because there seems to be a specific shape to them.  Besides, I don't eat a lot of oily foods.

Any help is appreciated.
