I used to have these lovely things all over my forehead and cheeks. I've been on Retin-a Micro for almost a year and they are almost gone now. They have taken FOREVER to go away but it's worth the wait. I have a few "stobborn" ones here and there. (Maybe 5 or 6, total) They just hang around on my face. Someone told me on this board that they are called, "Milia". No head, just blocked pores with oil and old sweat in them. YUCK! :eek: I have also been told NOT :nono: to pick at them and if I really want them removed to go to the Derm. and have him extract them out. I'm not sure how he would go about this. I'm going to ask him next week at my scheduled Appt. how he would do it and how much it would cost me. Anyone know? I was also wondering if there will be scars left after removal...? Anyway. Good Luck! :wave:
It could be milia which need to be removed by your dermatologist or it could be papules which will eventually go away on their own. Keep using the medication, they will slowly go away. Trying to mess with them and extract them will just make them big and infected and leave a scab.
