What the heck are these HUGE rice grains in my pores?

Antibiotics haven't helped this at all. Here's a picture of what I've removed from my pores so far.  http://imgur.com/YmXpOra

Hi, blocking of the comedones leads to the formation of blackheads/whiteheads. Acne occur due to excess oil production in the skin causing clogging of sebaceous glands in pilosebaceous units of the skin leading to inflammatory or noninflammatory forms of acne. The initial stage is the blocking of the comedones. What you had seen could have been the sebum plugs/blackheads. Regards.
