Milia are common non-cancerous skin findings in people of all ages. Milia formed directly from sloughed-off skin are small, fluid filled lesions (cysts) usually found on the face. Lesions formed indirectly are small cysts found within areas of skin affected by another skin condition.
Milia are formed when skin does not slough off normally but instead remains trapped in a pocket on the surface of the skin. An individual milium is formed from a hair follicle or from a sweat gland. In primary milia in infants, the oil gland may not be fully developed. Secondary milia often develop after injury or blistering of the skin, which disrupts and clogs the tubes leading to skin surface. It can also develop on the sun-damaged skin of middle-aged and older people.
