Bumps on nose, popped them, discoloured worm discharged, black bruising on nose. Treatment?

I have discovered a few small (Very small) bumps on my nose. Thinking they were acne , I tried popping them, they hurt unbelievably bad and instead of pus coming out, I think it was a worm . A very small discolored worm. I was scratching , and crying because of the pain it was causing, They are hard on the very tip and impossible to remove. I seriously have no idea what is going on. After removing one of the worms half my nose is black.

Thanks for writing to us.
From the description it seems, what you squeezed and removed was a comedone/ black head or white head. The are gor inglammed and healed with slight pigmentation.
Please get your comedones extracted from a dermatologist. If doing at home, firstly do warm water compresses over the area to loosen the comedones and then use a comedone extracter to remove it. do ice cold water compresses over the area nad apply clindamycin gel. very deep seated comedones require a doctor's expertise.
Please consult a dermatologist nearby to get the area examined so that a proper treatment can be prescribed.
Take care
