In brief: Normal

Hairs sometimes grow a little wrong and turn inward becoming ingrown.
They form little pimple like bumps. Usually squeezing them will get the gooey stuff and the hair out. You should not have to squeeze hard to express them...If painful or infected (happens occasionally) see your doc for help.
