A small white pimple like bump appeared in the corner of my inner upper eyelid. It is tender to the touch and irritating my eye. Is it likely a sty?

Yes: 25 year old lady with upper eyelid bump and eye irritation. It is quite likely a sty or chalazion. You can use a warm compress applied to eye for a few minutes and then wash your eyelid/eyelash area with some baby shampoo. If the problem gets worse, see your physician for an exam because antibiotic ointment can be used. Try over the counter artificial tears for the eye dryness.

I have hard pimple-like bump on my penis skin, but no white head, what could this be?

I have hard pimple-like bump on my penis skin, but no white head, what could this be?

May be. ..: A bump from pimple (1- 1.5 mm) - hyperactive hair-follicle-related sebaceous gland, usually has its white head visible, but at times, can be a "black" head. But, it's harmless as long as being asymptomatic and remaining stable in size. But, if still in doubt, see urologist timely for confirmation. Online guess is not always accurate. ...Read more

Lymph glands: The lumps on the neck are probably lymph glands reacting to infection and/or inflammation in the scalp. The scalp lumps could be infected hair follicles, psoriasis or other dermatitis, or viral lesions like shingles. Have your md check these areas if they don't resolve. ...Read more

A lump like this`: Really needs to be felt by your PCP (Primary Care Provider) however it sounds like an old inflammed LYMPH NODE (gland) from an old infection! The LOCATION as well as the SIZE and CONSISTANCY are used to determine if it needs to be removed!
Get it seen!

Hope this helps!

Bump: If this is not a recent pustule (pimple), it may be a simple inclusion cyst which doesn't recede and apparently isn't infected. It usually isn't itchy unless mildly irritated. A physician would have to examine this to make a diagnosis. ...Read more

?: Could be a stye or a chalazion. A stye is painful so I doubt you have one. Have it checked by your primary care doctor who may or may not send you to an ophthalmologist. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm a 20 y.O. Male and I just noticed a tiny bump right below my eye/eyelash. It is not red or painful, just a noticeable bump like pimple. What is it?

Several possible: Numerous skin lesions could match your description. Most likely are epithelial inclusion cyst, skin tag, papilloma, lid margin nevus, small chalazion among others. Malignant lesions like basal cell carcinoma are possible, but quite rare at this age. You should be examined by an ophthalmologist for diagnosis and advice, including possible removal or biopsy if the lesion is suspicious or bothering. ...Read more

Worrisome: Popping a pimple in this area can release germs into the surrounding skin. The localized reaction can be huge, and bacteria entering the veins in the area could cause a nasty cellulitis or worse. Go in today and have this evaluated before you get into more trouble. ...Read more

Pinguecula: This is a normal structure which the eye makes to defend itself against dust and wind. It is present next to the cornea (the front window) medially and laterally in the open space. It is more prominent during red eye conditions because it has few vessels, and so gets highlighted when the rest of the eye is red as it is paler. It does not need treatment. ...Read more

I have very small pimple like bumps on my eye lid and on my left palm. What it could be? They are painless and in small clusters. Been there for months

See ophthalmologist: Bumps on the eyelid are usually an infection in a gland of the eyelid and are called a stye or hordeolum which can be external or internal. A chronic form of this is known as a chalazion. Small benign growths such as papillomas or other types of infection can occur in the eyelid. I would see an ophthalmologist to clarify the diagnosis and get treatment. ...Read more

A white bump like pimple growing and painful to the touch is on my thumb's pad? It looks like an eye with an eyeball in the middle protruding out?

Splinter?: This is a strange complaint Mariam, and difficult to evaluate without a photo or being able to touch. You may need to consider getting a prime consult or seeing a clinic. The tenderness sounds like an infection, the whiteness a collection of pus. The eyeball??? well, my best guess is possibly a splinter or a bite. It probably won't get better without being drained, but put warm compress on it. ...Read more

Hi I have a white pimple likw bump on the bottom eye lid it will get itchy n sometimes get sore?

Eyelid bump: It may be a stye or chalazion. Do not press it, use warm compresses 5-8 times a day and it will open on its own. Don't wear makeup while you have this. You can wash your eye with baby shampoos to keep it clean and to avoid getting more. If it does not go away in a few days go to doctor/ urgent care /telemedicine doctor for prescription antibiotics. ...Read more

Whitehead/pimple looking white bump under bottom eye lid? Hurts when pushed on, attempted to pop as originally though it was a pimple? What is this?

Stye: Please do not attempt to pop this again. You do not want to damage your eye or your eyelid. Warm wet compresses a few times/day to soften the abscess so it will drain on its own is a common first line for treatment. If infection ensues one does need to see the doctor. ...Read more

Possible chalazion: If it involves the lower eyelid not the upper cheek it is probably a chalazion which is inflammation of a clogged meibomian oil gland. Treatment consists of warm compresses and massage and surgical drainage if no resolution after about a month. If the surrounding skin area becomes inflamed a preseptal cellulitis could be occurring which would require systemic antibiotics. ...Read more

Very big red bump in groin area. There is no head (like a pimple) been there for a week. What could it be and what should I do?

Cyst: Assuming the bump is painful, it is likely a cyst which is a fluid filled bump below the skin. It could also be an early abcess, which is an infected collection of pus below the skin, like a pimple but more painful and larger. Either can be a consequence of shaving in the genital region. Don't squeeze or pop it! I recommend seeing your doctor asap to see if it needs to be drained. ...Read more
