milia spots

I get milia spots on my face and decollete area. What can I do about avoiding getting them and what causes them. When they get big and come right to the surface I can put a needle in it and a white hard round stone like thing emerges. What is this?

Re: milia spots

These are very common and are just small collections of a skin protein known as keratin. Some people are more prone to them than others. Avoid pore blocking creams and make up and try not to rub the skin. As for treatment, occasionally vitamin A creams can be helpful, but extraction is often the most effective treatment. Many aestheticians will do this.
