    Milia anyone? How to treat?

    OK now my pimple is under control, but I'm still stuck wuth little whiteheads under my eyes and eye lid. Does anyone have the same problem? Can anyone suggest any product that can be used around eye area? I'm particularly fascinated with retin a, any good brands?

    Also I went to some sites, which they say is ok to extract them at home. Has anyone done that? Is it gonna scar?

    Thanks for any suggestion.

    I think it's from using eye creams and eye makeup or possibly even cleansers in that area that are plugging your pores. You can have an opthamologist remove them if your derm isn't comfy working so close to your eye. I have removed some with a needle and a lot of persistence and presently I have none. Be careful.

    missile,

    How exactly did you remove them? What did you put to speed up healing? What currently are you using on the area to prevent them from recurring?

    Thanks a lot.

    I pierced the spot with a sterilized pin or needle and worked it out! Treat it with some betadine afterwards and then use antibiotic ointment. I don't have much of a scar if any? I only had 2 or 3 at a time, eyelid, inside corner of eye, eye area... I don't know your particular situation. It is not safe to do on your own, near your eye. Check out list of comedogenic ingredients at sage skin care and vivant. Some people are more prone to milia around the eye at certain times in there lives, I guess.
    Take care.
