What Are Milia?

Milia are small, white, benign cysts that typically appear on the skin. They are commonly found on the face, particularly around the eyelids, cheeks, and nose, but can occur anywhere on the body. Each cyst is a tiny dome-shaped bump that is usually about 1 to 2 millimeters in diameter. Despite their small size, they can be a cosmetic concern for many people. Milia are not painful or harmful, but they can be persistent and difficult to get rid of without professional treatment. Unlike pimples or acne, they do not form from trapped dirt, bacteria, or oil, and they cannot be “popped” in the same way.
