Brief Answer:
Milia or Milium. They need to be extracted and are completely curable.

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.

I am Dr. kakkar(Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern and I have viewed the image.

You have Milium or Milia. Milia are superficial keratin cysts. The yellowish stuff is actually keratin accumulation inside the cyst wall.
Milium is completely curable and the results are excellent. They need to be removed. The treatment procedure usually consists of de-roofing the milium with a 26 gauge needle and extracting the keratin content either with the needle itself or with the help of a comedone extractor...The process is painless and the cosmetic result is excellent!! Though milia may recur i.e new ones may form over a period of time but perhaps your milia were not removed entirely in the first instance. In that case these partially treated milia may persist. I suggest that you revisit a dermatologist in your region for the needful.

Regards
