As far as I have heard, the only way to get rid of them is by going to the dermatologist. I have the same thing and that is what I was told.

  1. I had one awhile ago it was right near my eye almost in the corner and i was getting tired of looking at it i used hot compressions,then used a needle and finnally came out after using a needle to get it out finally it came out its like a pimple.But seek doctors advice frist.

  2. There’s no other way but time to get rid of bumps that are already there, so you can only prepare before you pluck to keep them from being noticeable.

    Steps
    Before you start plucking, hold a hot or warm, wet washcloth to the area you are going to pluck for at least 2-3 minutes. (Heat opens up the pores and follicles so the hair comes out smoother.)
    When plucking, pluck quickly and in the direction that the hair grows.
    Immediately after, apply pressure to the plucked area with an ice pack for about 10 seconds. (The ice keeps the swelling down and the bumps from getting irritated.)
    Apply a facial moisturizer to the area so that the skin does not dry out and become irritated.

    Tips
    Make sure that the washcloth isn’t too hot; you wouldn’t want to burn yourself.
    Use an oil-free moisturizer so it won’t clog pores.
