QUESTION: i have white  milia  on penis ........what to do??Harmful?

Answer
Primary or secondary milia in an adult may disappear on their own, but your doctor may treat you with one of the following:
Piercing each milium with a sterile lancet or scalpel followed by removal of the cyst material with a tool called a comedone extractor,
Topical retinoid cream such as tretinoin, tazarotene, or adapalene,
A series of acid peels or microdermabrasion procedures at the dermatologist's office.
