My derm said this is fairly common underneath the eyes. Some people have it and some people don't. I would not put BHA that close to your eye. Just leave it alone.

It's called milia. I have them underneath my eyes as well. It's most commonly caused my heavy products(particulary moisturizers).

Don't scrub at the area or use a BHA,it'll make it worse. A Derm is the best option for removal. For prevention stay away from thick oily products,light makeup and *gentle* exfoliation. Hope that helped some!
