My son is now 4 years old. He has bumps on his arms, legs & face. He has had them since he was an infant and they never seem to go away. It is not a rash and they are colorless. Some of the bumps look like little whiteheads. (sorry if gross) After doing an online search I think that it is called Milia.<br><br>
I will try anything to help his skin, so any suggestions would be helpful.<br><br>
Thanks,<br>

hello, my children have the same, or at least sounds the same, and it is eczema. my son has very severe eczema, and we use Provex (natural supplement) and Renew lotion from Melaleuca. it works very well. he still have some of the bumpy eczema, but considering he started with weeping infected sores, this is a vast improvement. if you would like info on it let me know. also, eczema can be for no reason, but also b/c of food allergies.<br><br>
blessings!<br>

Sounds like Pilaris Keratosis, here is a link:<br><br><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keratosis_pilaris" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keratosis_pilaris</a><br><br>
I had it when I was younger, and still have a bit of it on my arms and legs. My dermatologist had me use a nice moisturizer like Cetaphil.

My DS had bumps & baby acne. I use the Burts Bees Apricot Oil and it's been a miracle. It's sounds odd that an oil would cure acne, but they are all gone, he smells great, and his skin is oh-so-soft. It has a heavy dose of Vitamin E in it, and I've started using it on my skin! Face is clearing nicely...

I have this. I have tried everything short of stripping all of my skin off. As long as it's not painful, I would let it be. I grew up thinking I need to get rid of it and I still have a HUGE complex about it.
