Milia are little white bumps or small cysts on the skin. Milia are common in infants however can occur at any age. You can't protect against milia. Due to the fact that they usually vanish on their own in a couple of weeks or months, and no therapy is needed. Milia are most generally seen on a child's nose, chin or cheeks, though they may occur in other areas, such as on the upper trunk and arm or legs. Occasionally similar bumps appear on a child's gums or the roofing system of the mouth. These are known as Epstein pearls. Some babies also develop infant acne, commonly identified by small red bumps and pustules on the cheeks, chin and temple, which can occur with or without milia.
