I have these small white-ish spots under my eyes, known as milia.
Looks like this:
I did this research on it: It's caued because of keratin deposits under ur skin, like ur skin isn't shedding properly and new keratin forms over it, a bit like keratosis pilaris.
I was thinking could it possibly be caused by make up at all?... I 'm thinking it might be my concealer....
They're quite common, but not very easily removed.
I just wanted to know what methods people have used in the past to remove these spots, and if it was successful and did it leave any scars?
Thanks for taking the time to read, and I'd appreciate any advice

Erm, well I don't think it's makeup because my boyfriend has it He has removed a few of the worse ones in the past and it hasn't left any scars though.

How did he remove them?

I get them too. Best way to get rid of them seems to be to squeeze them a bit one day, just enough to make them look a bit angry; then come back the next and they'll come right out. Apparently lancing them with a sterile needle can work too, but I wouldn't recommend that - not least because of the proximity to the eye.

I occasionally get those and I don't do anything about them; it hurts if you try to pick them so I leave it and it dissappears on it's own.

It hurt a lot when i tried to pick it just now and has left the spot looking really ugly
I'm kinda worried about the needle thing; is it steralised by just heating the needle?

By boiling it You could also use cotton wool to clean it if you boiled some water and soaked the wool in that first. If you have any antiseptic that'd probably be a good thing to put on if it's an open "wound". This is big overkill but better that than an infection that close to your eye.
