1 Bump

My 3 year old has two bumps on her eyelid?

Hi I wanted to know if anyone else's children got these bumps.
They don't hurt unless touched. They are hard and not on her lashline like a stye.
Could they still be a stye? Or something else?

  • I'd go get it checked out. It could be some sort of an insect bite if it's not a stye. My nephew had one (a stye) on his eye lid when he was about 1 and a half. They took him to the doctor, and drained it.

  • She has had it for almost a week. Would an insect bite last that long?

  • insect bites can last that long.. my daughter has insect bites that last up to a month.. but they are really itchy and red in the beginning.. so I would think its not that, but you never know! Does it look like its coming from the surface or more from underneath?
