Milia are small white to yellowish hard, raised cysts that form under the skin. A milia is formed when there is a build-up of keratin that gets trapped under the skin. Milia is usually 1 to 2 millimetres in diameter that can appear anywhere but is most commonly found on the face. Milia is harmless but can be bothersome.
The formation of milia happens when there is a build-up of keratin that gets trapped under the skin. This can be due to the skin not being exfoliated, or shedding dead skin cells. Milia is not a form of acne, as milia is not formed within a pore, but under the top layers of the skin.
Milia is very common and can appear at any age, even in babies. With most cases of milia, it has no cause although some people can be more prone to them.
Milia can also form after skin injuries like:
