Thanks for the query,
you are suffering from a condition called as seborrhea.
In this condition the sebaceous glands around the nose are hyperactive and produce lot of secretion, when these secretions got infected they produce smell and come out like cheesy material.

Here is my suggestion for you.
1. wash your face with an oil control face wash, like the one containing tea tree oil.
2. keep cleaning the pores. for this you should boil water in a container and allow the steam to warm your face, this will open up the pores and you can easily squeeze out the content.
3. Immediately after squeezing out, apply benzoyl peroxide gel, this will reduce the smell.

Feel free to ask, if you have any other doubt.
Thank you
