See a doctor about it
Blackhead on the cheek
It sounds as if you have what is called an open comedone, or blackhead, on the cheek. This is a type of acne lesion that represents a clogged, open pore. When pressure is applied to this type of lesion, an oily paste comes out. If the lesion is long standing, the black dot may represent the opening of a cyst. See a board-certified dermatologist to determine what kind of lesion you have and to help you select the right treatment.
Pimple with a black dot is probably a black head
A pimple with a black dot is probably a black head. Find a great board certified dermatologist to help you. It might be extractable, or a cream could help.
