In brief: Blackheads

You are describing blackheads; you may need to see a dermatologist to be sure.
Blackheads are related to acne and respond to acne treatment (including benzoyl peroxide). It is also possible to extract individual blackheads with a removal device, but this involves compressing/squeezing the skin, which can spread infection. (don't do this if red, inflamed, or tender).
