Specializes in ENT and Head and Neck Surgery

From the description you stated: mostly skin related sebaceous gland inflammation related. Instead of squeezing, wash skin with antimicrobial soap with warm water, and apply topical antibiotic ointment for few days. If no improvement, seek medical doctor advice and treatment.
