I think you mean milia, and my son was born with a huge crop of them on his nose. They're basically uninfected pimples...trapped oil, sebum, etc, but not swelling up or turning black. They pretty much don't go away, in my experience. (I had one under my eyelid for about a year before I gave up and got it with a needle)
I hate to say it, but I very gently (very gently!) applied a bit of pressure next to them, and they opened up and emptied out. My husband caught me right before I got the last one, and I was reprimanded and told to leave it alone. When it was still there 11 months later and had made a noticable bump (which my dad INSISTED was a mole on babe's nose
), he finally let me get it out.
If you're super careful about not damaging the skin, they're pretty easy to remove. I laid a warm washcloth on his nose to soften the pores a bit, then tried them. If they've been there for a while, it may take several attempts to get it out bit by bit. (Sorry if this is TMI) Ryder had maybe 25 or so when he was born? So I've seem my fair share of milia...
I know conventional wisdom is to leave them alone, but this is what I did and it worked pretty well.
