Milia can be commonly found on the skin of people of all ages. They are formed when keratin (a substance produced by the skin) becomes entrapped beneath the outer layer of the skin, forming tiny cysts. The hard white pearly lumps under the skin caused by trapped sebum in the pore. If they are left untreated they can become quite large.
Treatment – A small amount of diathermy current is used to pierce Milia which then dries out and disperses after a few days.
Squeezing is not effective and can damage the skin.
