Studied your query in full depth of its details.Reviewed it in context of your health concerns.
Based On the facts, You mostly seem to suffer from-Sebaceous Cysts on upper back of spine,which was popped by you.Dry white push is actually the cheesy material which comes out of the Sebaceous Cysts.
I would suggest Excision of this Sebaceous Cyst by a Surgeon.
