Got little white, hard "pimples" that you can't get rid of? It's probably Milia. Milia are commonly found on the skin of people of all ages. They are formed when dead skin does not slough off normally but instead remains trapped in a tiny, round pocket on the surface of the skin. An individual milium (the singular of milia) is formed at the base of a hair follicle or sweat gland. Learn more...
You can't prevent milia, but the good news is that milia usually disappear on their own in a few weeks. The best treatment for milia is usually none at all. 50% of all infants develop milia, and over-time it will clear up on it's own. If you are plagued with it, a dermotologist can remove them.
