In brief: No picking
No picking as you will get something out but will make inflammation worse.
Routine care to control this common non-curable and harmless (but annoying) condition per dr. Westfried's recommendation. When the spots are inflamed, short term Hydrocortisone can be used twice daily (not longer than a week or so).
