Is this part of the purging process

i have about dozen+ of these small bumps around my eyes.

they look kinda like razor bump but are only visible when i stretch my skin tight around the area.

they don't bother me that much beacuse of that reason, but i keep thinking they might protrude far enough to being visible without me doing anything, or may develop into a cyst or nodule.

just wondering if anyone else has had this and how common is it. is their anything i can do about'em.

they might be small whiteheads or milia. Whiteheads are a definite part of the purging process but milia is not.

If they feel hard, like grains of sand, then its milia.. if it is soft then they are whiteheads.

hey thanks for the input. i looked up so info on millia and i think that might be it. says it pretty common in newborns and goes away after a while, but may remain indefinately on an adult unless physically removed by a specialist. ouch.

well at least i know what it's called now.
