I have these and researched a some months ago and mine matched up with all the pics and info I read about milia. I was going to the derm anyway to get a couple of moles removed and had her look at them and she said it was milia. She used this thingie and zapped them. There are some more I want removed. She also put me on the topical gel Atralin which is a retin A, just not as harsh as some. She also told me about how we use creams and such around the eyes and that kind of "helps" them form. I had read this online also before I went. I told her I used a Clarisonic on my face and she told me to keep it up and that would help as well. Although I have to admit I am not very good at using it regularly as I forget.
If you look at some pics some people have tons and so many around the eyes. I have only a few around my eyes, thank goodness. There are several sites and videos about how to remove them yourself. I was able to get a few myself. You can use a needle just to prick the top of the skin there and a skin tool to press just a bit to remove the tiny "cyst"
I have always had oily skin and acne prone. I'm 49 and thought that would not be an issue at this age but I was wrong.
Also if anyone is interested in asking your doc about Atralin my doc gave me a coupon so you don't pay more than $25. The tube is a good size and I've used it for several months and its not quite even half gone because you only use such a tiny amount. You may be able to get the coupons on their site as well. This comes out cheaper than me buying something over the counter. I've done this with a lot of our medications and it saves you a bundle as these big companies are trying to compete with generics. Anyway thought I would throw that out there as the cost of any type of medicine is crazy.
But as others have said there are so many different skin conditions it can get quite confusing.
