A Milium (plural milia), also called a milk spot or an oil seed, is a keratin-filled cyst that can
appear just under the epidermis or on the roof of the mouth. Milia are commonly associated
with newborn babies but can appear on people of all ages. They are usually found around
the nose and eyes, and sometimes on the genitalia, often mistaken by those affected as
warts or other STDs. Milia can also be confused with stubborn whiteheads.
In children, milia often disappear within two to four weeks. In adults they may require removal by a physician, dermatologist, or an esthetician.
