The White Bump Mystery

In La Jolla

By Nasrin Mani, M.D.

What are those tiny white bumps under my skin?


Those little bumps are collections of sebum (oil) that has hardened under the skin and they’re called milia,

These common tiny bumps keep your skin from being as smooth as it should be and most people have a hard time resisting the urge to pick at them (Yes, you know that will create a problem.) You can’t squeeze them out as there is no opening. So how DO you get rid of them?
