Dr. Joel Schlessinger shares info about milia with O, The Oprah Magazine.

How to cover up undereye bumps: Dr. Joel Schlessinger still gets asked that question, one asked of him by O, The Oprah Magazine, in 2009.

Some people get small, light bumps right below their eyes; perhaps you do, too. (If so, know that they’re easily removed! I’ve had it done myself.)
The Oprah Magazine Dr. Joel Schlessinger on how to cover up undereye bumps
In 2009, I provided information about those bumps to O, The Oprah Magazine, in an article titled “How to Cover Up Undereye Bumps.”  This magazine is a popular source of information about health, relationships, fashion, beauty and more and so I was glad to have the opportunity to share information on the topic.

These small undereye bumps are actual small cysts, called milia. Although they might resemble acne, they aren’t related to acne. Milia don’t typically go away without a dermatologist extracting them or “zapping” them with an electrical needle.

Milia are more frequently seen on newborn babies, but can develop at any age. You can see a photo of a newborn baby with milia at the Mayo Clinic site and find information about the cause of milia (dead skin becoming trapped) and more at Medline Plus, a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine of the National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger, offers helpful advice about milia:
