My 10-year-old son has white spots on his cheeks. They have been around for the last couple of years. Some appear to look like blackheads. I do not know how to treat them. Or if this is milia or keratosis. They are only on his cheeks and some tiny spots under his eye. But chin and forehead and nose are totally free of them.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
The white colored papules are indeed milia. The others are comedones. Comedones are part of acne vulgaris.
Comedian acne with milia.Probable diagnosis:
Milia, comedonal acne.Treatment plan:
1. Adapalene gel 0.1 percent for local application once at night on comedones.
2. For milia, they require needle extirpation for removal. Sometimes they subside on their own in a few months.
