Hi, I am a male 27, and I have bumps on my head. Every once in a great while , such as now, one will become very sore. I thought it was an infected hair. I use a tweezers and pull the hair out. The end of the hair has a lot of either XXXXXXX type substance or white stuff and when pulled hurts a lot. Sometimes the lump will then reduce or stop hurting. What is on the hair and what are these things?
