I figured while Im here I may as well see what you guys think this might be.

All over my hips I have what look like blackheads. They feel rough when i move my hand over them but I cant clean them out the way i do the blackheads on my nose. On a whim, i took a pair of tweesers to one of the spots and extracted from the pore what appeared to be a dense cluster of white fibers.
they look a little like the wires in fiber optics. Thin, almost clear, but there's a LOT of them. Almost 10 or 12 per pore. Too many to consider them ingrown hairs.
I have the same thing on the underside of my breasts as well but the pores for those are not black.
I've been google searching this for a few months now and I have yet to find anyone else reporting anything close.
they don't hurt or itch or anything. They're just... there. I can clean out all the pores of their threads (over an hours worth of work) but a week later most of them are back.
