Disease Definition:

Milia are the complexion problem in which tiny white bumps appear across the baby's nose and chin.

Those tiny white bumps are most common among newborns, despite the fact that milia can develop at any age. As a matter of fact, about half of all babies develop milia. To prevent milia, there is little someone can do. The best treatment is usually none at all if the baby has milia.

Symptoms, Causes

Symptoms:

Many babies are born with milia.

Epstein pearls, which are bumps similar to milia, may sometimes appear on a baby's roof of mouth or gums. Baby acne that is often characterized by small red bumps on the chin, forehead and cheeks may also develop in some babies.

Causes:

When tiny skin flakes become trapped in small pockets near the surface of a baby's skin, milia develop. Girls and boys are equally affected by this condition. 

Complications

Complications:

None

Treatments:

Within several weeks, milia typically disappear on their own and in the meantime:

 

  • Parents should keep the baby's face clean and wash it with warm water 2 or 3 times a day.
  • The baby's face should be dried gently by simply patting the baby's skin dry.
  • Any other type of treatment should be avoided. The tiny bumps shouldn't be scrubbed or pinched, and any type of medicated cream or other treatment shouldn't be used.
