Totally lost, it sounds like you have a high concentration of oil producing glands in that area and the best would be to wash the area with a soap-free cleanser as ordinary soap will stimulate the production of more oil. You can then also use something formulated for the treatment of blackheads like Differen® gel at night. Squeezing them may cause them to turn into pimples and may leave scars. It the above doesn’t make a difference within 2-4 weeks, the best would be to see a dermatologist. Good luck.
