What are these white bumps under my eyes?

Question by Lynn: What are these white bumps under my eyes?
I think they’re called milia but I’m not sure. It’s in the inner corner of my lower lids. A ton of tiny,little round shaped bubbles where my dark circles are. I’ve seen them on other girls. What are they and how can I get rid of them?

  1. Milia are common non-cancerous (benign) skin findings in people of all ages. Milia formed directly from sloughed-off skin (primary milia) are small, fluid-filled lesions (cysts) usually found on the faces of infants and adults, while lesions formed indirectly (secondary milia) are small cysts found within areas of skin affected by another skin condition.

    Milia are formed when skin does not slough off normally but instead remains trapped in a pocket on the surface of the skin. An individual milium is formed (derived) from a hair follicle (pilosebaceous unit) or from a sweat gland (eccrine gland). In primary milia in infants, the oil gland (sebaceous gland) may not be fully developed. Secondary milia often develop after injury (trauma) or blistering of the skin, which disrupts and clogs the tubes (glandular ducts) leading to the skin surface. Secondary milia can also develop on the sun-damaged skin of middle-aged and older people.

    Cosmetic treatments such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels can help.

    Because these bumps are caused by dead skin cells becoming trapped under the skin, they will eventually disappear with proper exfoliation.

    I hope that helps =)

    good luck :)
