Milia doesn’t just happen in babies and children. People of all ages may also develop milia. Sometimes they may manifest as small cysts or fluid-filled nodules. These form because of the accumulation of keratin. This substance, which the skin produces, gets trapped under the skin's outer layer, ultimately forms the tiny cysts.
If you're bothered by the condition, you can have yourself checked. A specialist can help you find out what type of milia you have. Usually, if it isn't severe, you don't need to get any treatment. But if it's severe, then a doctor may prescribe a retinoid cream for you. Either that or you may have to undergo a chemical peel or other procedures.
