Thank you for your question. It's difficult to tell you what your lesions are without photos or an in person evaluation, but from what you describe, the spots sound like either closed comedones (whiteheads) or milia (deep small cysts). Treatment options for either lesions include topical retinoids or extractions. I highly recommend you consult with a board certified dermatologist to have your skin evaluated, lesions diagnosed, and to discuss treatment options that best suit your needs. Take care and good luck.
