4 Bumps

I have a lump on my eye where my eye lashes are has anyone ever had anything like that removed and what do they do?

It's really starting to annoy me.

  • I have one of these right now. I had one before and after maybe a year, it went away. It was on my cheek. Now I have one in my lower lashes. I saw a derm doctor. They were afraid to remove it. I decided to wait to see what happened with it. It has been there for about two years. I'm not sure how I am going to get rid of it.

  • Is this something new? Or you've had it a long time. If it is something new it could be a stye. Styes are generally staph infections and highly contagious. If it is long term you need to see your Dr.

  • If it looks like a zit, it's a reoccuring stye.

  • My daughter and I both get them. It's sooo hard not to leave them alone! THere isn't much you can do about them. I soak them with a warm wet washcloth then use a q tip and apply neosporin to it. It happens when bacteria gets into, the hair follicle and causes an irritation.

  • could be an ingrown hair.
    I got an irritated lump on my eyelash line once, but I just put in visine and tried not to touch it and it went away in a few days.

  • A stye. Similsan Stye remover or warm compresses should encourage it to open up & draw the contaminate out.
