Skin bumps or “Milia” are a common occurrence among people of all ages. These white bumps are formed when keratin produced by the skin becomes trapped beneath the outer layer of the skin, forming a tiny cyst. An individual milium is formed at the base of a hair follicle or sweat gland. Though harmless, these bumps can be annoying to look at and many people would rather have them gone. If you have skin bumps, trying to get rid of them yourself may put you at risk of getting an infection! Instead, we invite you to visit our Dallas, Georgia center. At It Is Well Healthcare, we can provide you with effective skin care solutions to tackle this issue and more.
What Causes Skin Bumps?
These specific skin bumps can be categorized as either primary or secondary milia. Primary milia are caused by entrapped keratin found in the skin and are common on the faces of both infants and adults. Secondary milia look the same as their primary cousins but develop after something clogs the ducts leading to the skin surface. Clogs can happen after an injury, burn, or blistering of the skin. If you notice an abundance of milia on your face, treatment at our Dallas, Georgia center is available.
What Are the Symptoms?
Unlike many other skin conditions, milia do not cause very many symptoms beyond the bumps themselves. Some people may experience rashes with milia under the eye or on the eyelid, but this experience is not common. Generally, most people choose to treat milia for cosmetic rather than medical reasons. If you feel that the skin bumps you have are excessive and would prefer to see them gone, we invite you to seek treatment at our center.
