In Topic: What Are These White Lumps? (Pictures)

I think they are hypertrophic scarring. I got the same stuff on my cheeks. Also some of them can be comedones. 

Thank you,

 

Should I do something against them on an early stage? I've never really noticed at least the ones on my chin cause I had acne there. Should I dermastamp them or something?

This is going to sound gross, but what happens when you squeeze them?  Anything?

Nothing happens, they just remain there. It is very weird.

Yes milia tends to be hard .
Doing too much on our faces tends to change the way the collagen behaves ,sometimes the collagen gets trapped and starts forming scar tissue,heavy moisturizing tend to form milia ,specially heavy sunscreens.
What happens when acne is gone,we try to erase what was left of the acne,scars ,discoloration as soon as possible.
Let me give you my example,about 2010 I went to the dermatologist to control my hormonal acne,my face was doing ok,I had treated my acne with benzoyl peroxide treatment,I used persa gel,and Dan's benzoyl peroxide treatment,in combination with some over the counter products ,it cleared me good,then I decided to visit the derm because I wanted his opinion ,well ,he gave me retin a , this retin a micro,caused me the worst cystic acne of my life and totally changed my skin , after the cystic acne cleared with the same over the counter products I had used before,my skin developed some bumps,really small,they don't feel like milia ,they feel the same way as you describe,soft .
I can't hardly see them.
I have an idea what might have caused them.
I think the collagen stimulated by the retin a started forming scar tissue ,the collagen became trapped and formed cystic acne and the remaining of that acne were those little bumps.
This is my experience,for you to figure it out, you will have to pay attention and see if the cause can be something else.
Take care and ask your dermatologist.

I see, thank you for your experience.

If I use no moisturiser the pores/marks will be harder and when I use moisturizer they will be very soft, so there is that.

 

But I still have no idea what it can be.
