only get rid of blackheads by squeezing?

I had very bad acne as a teen, but it's under control now.  I have blackheads very bad tho.  On my chin and nose, it seems like I litterally have one in EVERY pore.  I don't even have to look in the mirror, I cant just squeeze and something will come out.  Scrubbing does nothing.  Do I have to pop every one of them?  will they stay way if I do?  Please help.

and acne-aid soap

Squeezing spots or blackheads spreads bacteria under the skin. This leads to more spots in the same place, delayed healing time, secondary infection and even scarring.
See your GP for a topical retinoid gel called Differin (adapalene 0.1%).
