Milia, commonly known as "milk spots," are small, white cysts that appear on the skin.

 

These cysts are filled pockets located just beneath the surface of the skin. Milia most frequently occur on the face, particularly around the eyes, nose, and cheeks. They are often mistaken for whiteheads, which are a type of acne.

Milia are most common among infants, with about half of all healthy newborns having Milia at birth. They can also develop later during infancy, especially among premature babies. However, different types of Milia can affect individuals of any age.

 

Milia are harmless and typically only affect the appearance of the skin. They do not cause any discomfort or pain. 

Milia

Skin tags are harmless growths that can appear anywhere on your skin, but often develop on the neck, eyelids, or underarms. They may be the same color as your skin or darker. Some are pink. Others turn red when irritated. You may see one dangling from a stalk, while another is firmly fixed to the skin.

These growths can appear anywhere on the skin, but they usually develop where skin has been rubbing against skin, jewelry, or clothing for some time.

 

 

That’s why they usually occur in one or more of these areas:

  • Breasts (beneath) 

  • Eyelids

  • Groin

  • Neck creases (or where clothing or jewellery rubs against the neck)

  • Underarms 

Skin tags are also commonly found on the sides, abdomen, or back.

Because they develop where skin rubs against skin, people who are overweight, pregnant, or have loose skin are more likely to get skin tags.

You also have a higher risk of developing skin tags if you have diabetes, metabolic syndrome (high blood pressure, unhealthy blood sugar levels, extra fat around your waist, or unhealthy cholesterol levels), or a blood relative has skin tags.

It’s important to keep in mind that these growths are harmless.

Wart Removal

Warts are benign growths that can develop on the skin and mucous membranes, such as those inside the mouth or genital area. They are caused by infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV), of which there are over 100 subtypes.

 Warts can vary in appearance depending on the type and location. They may appear dome-shaped, flat, rough, bumpy or cauliflower-like, smooth, or thread- or finger-like. The color of warts can range from skin-colored to brown, grey, or black. Some warts may also have small black or brownish dots within them.

 

While warts are generally harmless, they can be bothersome or painful, especially if they develop on areas of the body that are subjected to pressure or friction, such as the hands or feet. Warts on the soles of the feet, known as plantar warts, can be particularly painful when walking.
