Do you ever get bumps on your eyelids?

I have a small, pimple-like bump on my lower eyelid, right where my eyelashes start. It's small and white, it resembles a pimple. It doesn't hurt, I'm just curious as to what it is.

I've never had a sty before, but I'm thinking this might be what it is, but like I said, it doesn't hurt or anything.

  • It's a sty. Don't mess with it or it could get infected and hurt like hell. I made that mistake a few months ago!! I've heard that warm compresses help it go away.

  • Yes I get them. No I do not know what they are. I just pick at them til they come off. I am by no means recommending this action. This is just what i do.

  • Probably a blocked oil duct. Place a warm wash cloth over it for a couple minutes a couple times a day.

  • I have tiny skin tags on my eye lash area. I once had bumps on the whites of my eyes. Eye doc said it was from riding in a convertible with the top down. Dogs will get them also.

  • mine is a skin tag right in the lash line - dermatolgist will not touch it too close to eye.
