How to get Rid of Milia


Milia are pesky little bumps that are somewhat visible on your face. While difficult to get rid of permanently, milia can be manageable. Here are the best ways to get rid of milia.

  • Make an appointment with your dermatologist to have your milia looked at. While at your appointment, ask your dermatologist to prick them off. Make sure there is not an extra charge for this and that your doctor will only charge you a co-pay. This will sting a bit and will leave your face with temporary red marks. These marks will go away within a day.

  • Ask your dermatologist to prescribe a face cream to help prevent the milia from returning. These should be used every other day. Be careful not to apply more than a pea sized amount to your face, as these creams are very strong and can cause rashes if overused.

  • Purchase a glycolic face wash/cleanser. Use this cleanser every time you wash your face. If your dermatologist's office does not carry glycolic cleanser, then research online and purchase through a website. These cleansers require no prescription.

  • If you follow these steps, the milia will greatly decrease if not disappear completely. Go visit your dermatologist every few months to have the milia pricked off. After about a year and a half, your milia should be completely gone and you will no longer need to have the pricking procedure done. Be patient and your skin will end up clear and beautiful.
