Many options: Is this a new event? Or something of long standing? Is it asymptomatic or does it hurt? Is it growing, bulging above skin level, inflammatory? If any of these questions are positive, then you should consult with your ophthalmologist or a dermatologist. Once pathology is eliminated then a cosmetic approach might be considered.
