See a doctor!: Short of "operating" on yourself, a dermatologist or plastic surgeon can deal with this definitively, for a cost. Digging it out yourself can not only fail to accomplish the job effectively, but can end up causing an infection, scar, or even more serious problems (as well as failure to solve the initial problem).
