Clogged pores, beardie won't let me clean them

Update, I got one of their pores unclogged I believe, been slowly working one of the large ones out of the pore over a couple of days, but now I'm worried I messed up.
They have a hole there now, what do I do? Do I just leave it be, or should I put a bandaid and some medicine there? I just don't wanna get them sick.

Here's the photos I took, I just got it out. The clog was fairly small length wise, but large width wise.

I just don't want my lil snuggle-bugs to get sick, or injured, I hope I didn't accidentally screw up.

Ok, put some stuff on her pores, it's not exactly neosporen, but it's very similar. [ also, the reason why I keep using feminine pronouns for them, is because the X-rays the doctors took didn't detect any hemi-penes, not only that, they're used to me calling em my pretty girl, and using feminine pronouns, I don't wanna confuse them, but if they are male, I will do my best to use masculine pronouns for them. ]

I agree, it's O.K but if it ever looks infected you can put a dab of raw honey on it. And yes, 100 % male. You see the 2 longish bumps above his vent [ the butt ] Those are called hemipenes, there are the 2 that males have. They are very prominent and you can teach your vet something. Ask any breeder in any forum what that picture tells you, every one will tell you easily what he is.

Weird. Then again, they also did misgender my previous dragon that was a male. They seem to be good currently, they were snuggling with my mom for a lil while after I put the medicine on their legs. It looks like the medicine is helping. The vet I go to is very knowledgeable on beardies, so I'm a lil hesitant on calling them a male fully, but I accept that they are most likely a male.

I'll update this in a lil bit, and/or tomorrow with how they are acting. I think they're a lil upset with me, cuz I've been trying to slowly get the clog out, gonna do it one at a time.

God I feel so bad for them. I can't imagine how uncomfortable it must feel to have that stuff clogging their pores and stuck in their lil leggies. My poor baby

Also, just zoomed into the photos I took earlier, and noticed these lil white things inside the pore, is that normal??
