Little white stuff

I have these tiny white stuff on my chin, around my nose area, and my lower forehead.  I don't know what they are but it seems they are coming out of the pores, they cause no physical pain but it looks dirty.  They are a lot of them and they keep coming back even after I remove them with tweezers or scrub them.  Anyone know what I am talking about, and can anyone help. Thanks.

Hello,
They sound like blocked hair follicles or sebaceous glands.
Cleanse the area thoroughly and apply a good mild exfoliating scrub on that. Apply a medicated cream or gel containing resorcinol, salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. If benzoyl peroxide leaves your skin dry, apply an oil-free moisturizer after 10 minutes of applying benzoyl peroxide.

If the symptoms still persist then please consult a dermatologist.

I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
