what is this if its not a blackhead

for almost a year now ive had acne (never had it before in my life before this) trying to work with my dorm over the computer but its kind of difficullt but all on my forehead I have these black dots in my pores that you would assume are blackheads but when I pop them a hard yellow clear ball pops out almost looks like an eye booger or something but it comes from the pimples and they won't go away does anyone know what this is or how to help treat it.

You know what, I think blackheads can do that. There is like a bottom part to the top part which is hard and dark (which I read was the other stuff just turned dark due to air).  Here's a slide show of acne, yay! Ha.  But it might help.  https://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/acne/ss/slideshow-acne-dictionary  One thing that I have read is that picking them while tempting isn't the actual best thing to do. What kind of cleaner do you use?  We got an astringent for my son and it is clearing his skin up tremendously.
