Hi Tini,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Need to be clarified, exactly how big is the size of the bruntusan? What color is it like? How is the consistency? Does it feel itchy, painful, or other? In addition to the face, whether the bruntusan also appear on other parts of your body?


Milia occurs when skin protein (keratin) is trapped in the pilosebaceous glands. This condition is actually more common in newborns. However, it is also possible for milia to occur in older people. Clinically, milia will appear as smooth skin, with sizes ranging from 1 to 5 mm. Although generally small, there are also types of milia whose size can be enlarged (more than 1 cm), namely milia en plaque. Bruntusan that arises due to milia is usually whitish or yellowish, which is sometimes accompanied by itching. Milia are more common in the face area, especially around the forehead, nose and cheeks.


In addition to milia, bruntusan can occur as you experience due to other triggers, such as folliculitis, xanthelasma, acne, blackheads, miliaria, contact dermatitis, warts, drug eruptions, hypertrophic scars, and so on. Without checking directly the appearance of the bruntusan, of course it is very difficult for us to identify what the exact cause. Therefore, if it is true that your complaint has appeared since birth and feels very disturbing, you should consult yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist to be given appropriate treatment. If the true cause of your condition is milia, this condition is generally not dangerous and also does not require special treatment. In some conditions, doctors may also recommend certain medical measures to treat milia, for example by extraction using mushrooms, lasers, peels, cryotherapy, administration of special creams that contain isotretinoin, and so on.


In the meantime, here are some suggestions you can make:

Wash your face diligently morning and evening using cleansing soap that suits your skin type
Not rubbing, squeezing, or forcefully slipping the resulting puff
Do not touch your face with dirty hands
After bathing, dry your face well, then use a moisturizer and sunblock before your activities (especially outdoor activities)
Sleep adequately and regularly
Live a healthy diet, rich in good nutrition to maintain healthy skin
Do not carelessly use excessive cosmetics or certain skin care products without first discussing it with your doctor

Hope this helps ...
