Hi Meena,
These black dots could be anything freckles, dermatosis papulosis nigra( DPNs), plain warts, comedones etc.
Freckles require sun protection, sunscreens, pigmentation reducing creams
DPNs and warts can be removed with electro cautery
Comedones require extraction or cautery.
So you can see the treatment suggested changes with diagnosis. Dermatology being a visual field diagnosis can only be made after a having a look at the lesion. For the same you need to consult a dermatologist. Hope that answers your query. Take care.
