Rash Milia Evaluation

The evaluation of a milia begins with a history and physical exam.

The diagnosis of milia is made on physical examination. Tests are not required to evaluate milia.

Physical findings in someone with milia include:

  • Skin lesions:
    • Tiny white bumps on the skin
    • Located on the forehead, nose, cheeks, and upper lip
  • In adults, the rash may also occur on the upper chest and back.
