    yes they are milia.

    Milia can be safely left alone, but if the you really need treatment, it can be removed with a small needle.using Retinoid could also help to stop new occuring milia..visit your dermatologist for further suggestions on excision if you needed..

    Millia are keratin-filled cysts where as Syringomas are benign adnexal neoplasm formed by well-differentiated ductal elements.But sometimes Syringomas are associated with millia.. I'm not sure there might be much more different between them.A dermatologist might give you the right answer..

    using Retinoid for atleast 3-4 months might decrease.and don't do those popping with needle it may more lead to infection as many people do it.Just consult your dermatologist for further management.
