Hello Doctor,

I am 23. I have attached a photo of my forehead. As you can see there are tiny white little bumps all over my forehead and Face. They are a lot more than in the picture. I tried many facewash and creams containing (clindamycin) But they still appear.

Please suggest any treatment for this. How can i keep it clean.

Thanks in advance

Milia are a common skin condition that is noncancerous and affects people of all ages. Milia appear as small white bumps and are the result of skin that does not slough off normally being trapped in a hair follicle or sweat gland. Some milia may occur after an injury or blistering of the skin and have appeared on people suffering from sun-damaged skin. The condition may also occur following the long term use of topical steroids. Milia can occur in all ages, races and both genders. Treatment is extraction with a medical professional.
