Not serious: Sounds like you are having more oil production and the pores are getting clogged. Try scraping very gently to get the tops off, using just a fingernail.

Pimple: I am not aware of any deaths caused by popping pimples in your nose. The internet is full of bad medical advice. We typically suggest you don't squeeze pimples because of the trauma and scarring that can occur. However, realising how painful these can be, do what you need to do.

Some options...: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is quite helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream such as Cleocin gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics such as tetracycline can be used also.
