A milium (single for milia) is a small superficial cyst formed in the top layer of the skin called the epidermis. They appear as tiny, pearly-white bumps just under the surface of the skin. They contain keratin (skin protein) and are harmless. They are often seen on the face, in particular on the delicate skin around the eyes. They can be prevented or minimized with exfoliating like chemical peels, microdermabrasion or topical retinoids. However, they are sometimes difficult to remove without a physician’s help, since they cannot simply be squeezed out. Often, the surface of the skin has to be pierced first with a lancet, a sharp pointed blade, or a needle, in order to successfully remove the milium. Often a comedone extractor is used to express the milium.

I have removed something like that a couple of times by myself, but not with a scalpel. With a regular stainless steel needle that is disinfected, holding it between thumb and index finger so that there is little length forwards. Standing still against a closet with a fixed mirror and good light. The other hand helps to keep the face fixed and together with the face blocks the hand that holds the needle partly, so that hand doesn't tremble. When getting closer with the needle, the first time she is held backwards with the blunt head to figure out that the control and nerves are okay. Then when is decided where the point of the needle is going to give a minimal scratch or puncture (that depends on the milium itself), this has to happen after a deep inhalation and exhalation, so the control is maximum. Nerves under control, full concentration and very sure of what one is doing. Zen like. After the blocked pore is opened straight in its center (without going deeper than needed) or a bulging white tip is pricked or scratched with the tip of the needle, the needle is turned backwards again and the needle head is used to gently apply pressure (bit by bit) so that the filling comes out. Do i advise anyone to try this themselves at home? Hell no !
I am not affected by blood gore guts pimples death cuts broken limbs or anything like that and I have no anxiety or depression I am unemotional and apathetic, if you have anxiety watching this I have cringe for you.
Millia are pain in the butt for me because I have it since my adolescent years til now. I grew milia in the corner of my eyes over and over again. I remember getting it removed in a facial clinic without even using anesthesia because it’s not popular in our country and it used to be just part of the facial cleaning service. Yes. I cried everytime but it’s always a relief clearing up my face/eyes from that thing.
I too have a milia right up next to my eye, only on the outer edge of the eye. I actually just 2 months ago got a bunch of these all at once. They look awful and I myself need the one on my eye to be removed, but,..I'm scared😲
I though that I was the only person who could have that too close an eye. I got something similar and I had it around 4 or 5 years and one day when I look at it there was a hole so I squished it . Now I'm so glad to wear my make up without that horrible thing on my eye.
