I'm sure I remember reading on here that if you use baby oil it gets rid of milia.

I've had them zapped at the dermatologists office. I don't know what he used, but I think it's pretty common.

My definition of milia is a hard bump under your skin that would not come to a head if you steamed it a lot and put drawing masks on.

A good facialist will extract them (with a needle thing) but I heard that they wouldnt do that in Australia as it's not legal..?! They do it in here in the better London salons but I'm not sure of everywhere.

my face is full of it, esp my forehead. I started getting them around early teen. Can't get rid of them. Sad

At one point, my dermatologist put me on roaccutane and Obagi product line. That combination totally get rid of them and I have this really nice rosy skin. But I lost a lot of hair, cracked bleeding lips and I thought this is not worth it. so I stopped.

If we're just talking lots of annoying bumps under your skin rather than milia, I think Decleors essential balm clears them up really well. That stuff is like magic. Although if you use it for more than a few days in a row, it stops being effective.

Thanks for all your replies. I don't think I have this condition. After a few days of using MD Formulations, these little crusties are now clearing up. Yipee Very Happy

Eye ones sound more like proper milia.

You'll need to go a good facialist and get them to extract it or I guess go to a dermatologist.
