Milia, often mistaken for whiteheads, are small white bumps that appear on the surface of the skin. They are, however, keratin-filled cysts that form just under the skin. They are usually grouped together on the nose, cheeks, and chin, although they may appear elsewhere. There are several reasons why milia develop, but they most commonly occur due to dead skin building up and getting trapped in the pores near the surface of the skin, or when keratin builds up and gets trapped.
