here some info :
Milia are common non-cancerous (benign) skin findings in people of all ages. Milia formed directly from sloughed-off skin (primary milia) are small, fluid-filled lesions (cysts) usually found on the faces of infants and adults, while lesions formed indirectly (secondary milia) are small cysts found within areas of skin affected by another skin condition.
Milia are formed when skin does not slough off normally but instead remains trapped in a pocket on the surface of the skin. An individual milium is formed (derived) from a hair follicle (pilosebaceous unit) or from a sweat gland (eccrine gland). In primary milia in infants, the oil gland (sebaceous gland) may not be fully developed. Secondary milia often develop after injury (trauma) or blistering of the skin, which disrupts and clogs the tubes (glandular ducts) leading to the skin surface. Secondary milia can also develop on the sun-damaged skin of middle-aged and older people.

What Are Milia Seeds?
Milia seeds occur in areas of the body where we have pilosebaceous glands (where hair follicles grow), similar to acne. The cysts are 1 to 2 mm in size and are growths of keratin that develop mostly around the eye area, but they can occur in other parts of the body.
The Cause of Milia Seeds
Although the exact cause is still not known, it is thought that milia seeds occur when the sweat glands are underdeveloped or damaged due to some sort of skin trauma like a burn. Other causes include certain fungicides, overuse of soaps and cleansers, and allergies to products that may cause some damage to the sweat glands.
Another common occasion when this condition may occur is after microdermabrasion--in these cases, the cause is also likely to be from damage to the glands. In adults, the bumps generally do not readily go away without treatment and may be further exacerbated by another skin ailment. Much like acne, the pores may become clogged, leading to difficulty sloughing off the dead skin and clogging the pores. These cysts are not unusual and are no threat to your health.
How to Get Rid of Milia Seeds
There is no medical reason to remove milia seeds, since they are harmless--however, people may want them removed for aesthetic reasons. The condition will fade away in infants, so no treatment is recommended. However, for adults, no medication has been shown to be effective in the treatment of milia seeds, so it may be necessary to have the cysts removed by a dermatologist in a process similar to properly extracting a zit. Having it poked with a sharp, thin object and squeezed in a quick and minimally painless procedure can do the trick. In fact, after learning the proper technique from your health care professional, you may be able to extract the cysts yourself.
How to Avoid Developing Milia Seeds :
If the bumps are recurring, you should consider using an oil-free lotion or cream and possibly change products altogether, as an allergy may be the cause. Sunburns may also cause damage leading to the cysts, so be sure to wear sunblock if burning is a problem for you. One last suggestion is to avoid any unnecessary dermatological procedure that causes trauma to the skin (such as microdermabrasion).
