Milia are small, raised, white bumps on the skin, typically appear around the cheeks, nose, eyelids and forehead. They are extremely common and they can affect people of any age including newborn babies.
Why do I get them?
Milia are tiny skin cysts filled with protein called keratin that occur spontaneously. The cause is not known.
Secondary milia may appear on skin that has suffered from burns, blistering skin conditions such as pemphigoid, chronic sun damage, or long term use of steroid creams.
