Milia is the technical term used to refer small, hard spots or white bumps on skin.

Milia is mostly found on the surface of the facial skin like eyelids, chin, cheeks, mouth and nose. It’s new born babies and infants get affected mostly from milia than adults.

What causes Milia?

The skin’s inability to exfoliate naturally leads to the development of milia on face and other facial areas. This allows dead skin cells causing damage to the skin. As a result, keratin, the protein found in nails, hair and skin get trapped under the skin’s surface. This in turn results in a noticeable cyst like white bumps on face.

Individuals whose skin’s natural ability to cleanse properly and shed dead cells is weakened can lead to milia.

Some of the common reasons include:

  • Too much exposure to UV rays,
  • Skin damage resulting from injury or rash,
  • Excessive use of steroid medications,
  • Natural aging,
  • An autoimmune condition,
  • Burns to the skin, and
  • Genetics.
