I noticed a small little lump/knot not sure what you would call it above my left eye about 2 months ago. it stayed the same in size up until yesturday and now it is bigger ?? any ideas on what this ...
What is this small zit-like spot under my eye? It's been there for a year? Any ideas?
I have a small spot that looks like a white head but it is not. It's just a hard white spot underneath my left eye and it has been there for almost a year. It just showed up. Someone told me once that it was a skin tag, but when you look closely it isn't tag like at all, more white head like, but firm. It isn't painful and I don't have any eye problems. I just don't like the way it appears and would love to know what it is? and How to rid myself of it. Thanks
its called a stie i know its not much of an answer but look up the word stie it means "Inflammation of one or more sebaceous glands of an eyelid." its easy to get rid of it just ask your doctor or pharmiscist.
I use to have one in the same spot to. I duno though, I always just ignored it and showered daily and sooner or later it just went away. Dont irratate it unless you want a scar or it to heal longer.
I'd try applying a hot washcloth to it (don't burn yourself, but make it as warm as you can and keep replacing it) and see if that softens it up, or brings anything to a head.
Worth a try.
It sounds like what I had a few years ago.
My opthamologist said it was a chalazion and that it would not go away on it's own. He had to operate on it to remove the lump and it healed very quickly.

These are usually very small deposits of fat. They can be opened and the fat can be removed, but unless they've gotten large, it's best to simply leave them alone. If it has gotten large enough that it's troubling you in some way, it should be opened and removed by a doctor; it's a quick office procedure, but it's not something you should do yourself.
