Okaaay. So Thursday night sleepless from stress, had an exam the next day I get fixated on removing the large milia under my eye. I get up from my bed examine the offending bump in the mirror and search out a needle. Looking around the house, I settle for a beading needle. I poke underneath the millia and try to squeeze it out - the damn thing is too big I guess and it won't budge. I poke it in two other places and the little incisions bleed but nothing comes out.
Thank god it healed and you can't tell I ever poked at it. I learned my lesson. I'll probably try some of the aforementioned products in the next few months but really living with a little bump under my eye isn't that bad. I'd rather that than a freaky extraction scar.

Mahua,

Try the other thread "enlarged pores and milia". There are several more posts and possibilities for treatment - especially the last few pages.

Hi! I know something that works for milia. When I was in my twenties, I had a big problem with them on my upper and lower eyelids. I had very little money and couldn't go to the derm. I guessed at what would work and tried breaking open a vitamin E capsule. I put some vitamin E on it every night for two months. Yes, it took a full two months of doing it every single night but it worked. After about 6 weeks, they started to wipe away when I washed my face. They were completely gone within 8 weeks. Oh, and the vitamin E that you buy in a bottle doesn't work on milia. It's too thin. The only one that has worked for me is breaking open the capsules.

I wonder what would happen if you started with BHA's and then put the vitamin E on top of it. I wonder if that would speed up the process.

I had one just below my eye so I was afraid to poke it too much but I scrubbed the heck out of it with a good facial scrub and then in the evening put retin A all over my face including under my eyes. It took a little while but it did go away. I went to my derm and she thought she had it gone but it never helped at all. I hated that thing, it felt like a wart under my eye Sad Now I am very careful with my eye cream because I think that is what caused mine.

Confused I have milia on forehead and a few on cheek's, would buying a personal microdermabrasion system help in time....I've been looking at the PMD at shopnbc does anyone have any suggestion , I did go for professional microdermabrasions, but she said i would have to come in 3 times a week for the 1st month then 2nd month once a week, (which will get expensive as I paid 120.00 a session) so I am considering buying.. just have heard about so many now I'm confused

Tea tree oil!, for anyone interested in a simple, natural treatment for milia. I'm ecstatic with the results! I've gotten rid of approximately 12 that came about, apparently, due to some complication with contact lenses or the liquid solutions for them (needless to say I'm no longer using contacts). I was only told by my doctor that I needed to dry out the milia to get rid of them. I've always used tea tree oil for acne and razorburn, and it seemed like a logical option to me. I spot-treated the milia on my eyelids and lower lash line (delicately) with pure tea tree oil, applied with a q-tip. It is a strong substance, and one needs to be careful not to use too much or get it in the eye (that is quite painful), but I'm very happy with it and glad that I found a natural solution.

I just saw the este doing the shows on shopnbc, she said PMD is great for millia or any microdermabrasion. I wrote more on the pmd thread.

hope that helps

Plain lemon juice dabbed on with a cotton bud works well. This treatment, used over a few days, on some isolated milla allowed easy removal.

Will dry and irritate surrounding skin, and I don't know if it works with deeper ones

I just pick at them or poke with a needle until they become irritated and I can squeeze them out or they come out on their own. No scars and no infection. My dermatologist told me to do it!

I had one stubborn milium, if that's the singular form, by the side of my nose on my cheek. I'd had it for over 2 years and it was getting larger. Nothing had helped in terms of exfoliating, including Obagi Exfoderm.

Then, as I was using Perricone Blue Plasma all over my face, I decided to spot treat it and within a week it had expanded to the point where I could gently squeeze it and remove it.

2 months later, I'm so happy because no scars and no return.

Hope this helps.

Maybe you found a soloution 2 years ago Smile
BUT : These days, there are rf dot matrix lazers to get for less than 80 $ on ebay...
(I bought a smaller one , 23$ -smaller and with batteries...Though, I think my problems with millar is fading away Smile -The litle machine/device, is called :"Lazer and electricity remove eye wrinkle" KD 8900/8901.
The device is very cheap and litle, so you have to be patient ,-I have used it under/over my eyes, eleven/and around the moouth and nose..I think I see some differens and especially very pleased as I see the milles are away...Only the two biggest, stubborn left!

This is the worst thing you can do - lemon juice upsets the ph balance of skin plus is acidic and will do more harm than good. Milla is usually trapped oils so you can use something like ocm to remove the oils.

Because the oil is trapped under the skin you need something that helps to break up that trapped oil deposit, and start to remove or loosen the debris and oils and that’s where OCM (Oil Cleansing Method) comes in. The oils make it much more easier to dislodge and remove the trapped oil, plus it helps regularte the skins oil production and thus balances the skin out. The oils do this because they do so without stripping the skin of essential oils and thus upsetting the ph balance, but at the same time hydrating the skin too. Plus depending on which oil you use there are vitamins etc in there. Take Rosehip Oil – it has vit A, C, E in it.

Read the whole OCM thread here. Traditional OCM is olive oil plus castor oil – in different ratios depending on skin type.
