Milia are small, pearly-white or yellowish bumps on the skin. One sees them mostly around the nose, cheeks, eyes, forehead and chest. Milia occurs when dead skin traps in the surface pockets of the skin. When the surface of the bump wears off, the dead skin will slough off, causing the bump to disappear.
Dermatologists diagnose milia on their appearance and a clinical examination. In fact, they examine the skin with a special magnifying lens (dermoscopy). READ MORE
Milia does not cause any complications. However, milia cause cosmetic issues. Therefore, dermatologists may recommend the appropriate treatment for them.
