How to get rid of milia: Treatment, prevention, and causes

  • This article looks at different types of milia, their causes, and possible ways to get rid of them.
  • Milia most often appear on the face, commonly around the eyelids and cheeks, though they can occur anywhere.
  • Since milia themselves do not cause scarring, think carefully before undergoing these treatments.
  • However, when milia are associated with other skin conditions or injuries, swift treatment may keep them from appearing.
  • Milia may be present from birth, while neonatal acne usually does not appear until 2 weeks after birth.
  • This rare type of milia involves numerous bumps appearing in the same area over several weeks or months.
  • Certain topical medications, including some steroid creams, may cause milia to appear.
  • If milia do not disappear within a few weeks, a doctor may be able to recommend treatment options.
