Milia are usually multiple whitish lesions seen on the face. They are usually present in little babies and resolve spontaneously. When they appear in adult life, they can be more persistent. They can disappear spontaneously.

They are small cysts in the skin and not to be confused with whiteheads, hence not advisable to be scratched out or squeezed out. They are harmless and symptomless. If they are to be removed for cosmetic reasons, a simple procedure using a needle can be carried out.
