Brief Answer:
Most probably milia

Detailed Answer:
Hello,


After seeing the photo, it seems that most probably it may be milia.
Kindly consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment.

Milia is a benign condition characterized by minute cystic lesions consisting of whitish keratinized material.

It may disappear without treatment. If it remains for a long time and if you are embarrassed, it may be removed by electrocautery under local anesthesia.

I hope this would help.

Thanks.
