Colloid Milium is a rare skin condition, which presents with multiple small amber-coloured bumps on sun-exposed areas. The lesions may discharge a gelatinous fluid under expression.
The main cause is UV radiation and probably the exposition to petroleum products and hydroquinone.
No good treatment exists at the present time but cryotherapy, dermabrasion and other surgical procedures may be tried.
