Boil On Lower Eyelid
Examination: Blisters are always somewhat worrisome and providing possibilities doesn't help you very much. I advise an examination by an ophthalmologist to correctly diagnose and treat. Concerns would be herpetic lesions, particularly if painful. ...Read more
I have eyelid redness, discharge in eyes and painful red lump on eyelid. There is a whitehead bump inside my lower lid & red bump on outside lower lid?
Warm Compresses: A stye is usually caused by a blocked oil gland on the eyelid. Treatment includes warm compresses and lid massage over the bump to encourage the stye to drain. You should visit your eye doctor who might also prescribe medication which can help. In some cases an injection of medication can be helpful, and in other more stubborn cases a drainage via a minor surgical procedure in the office is needed. ...Read more
Spread upper eyelid I see bulging on the outer corner, from the inside. Noticed tiny blisters inside lower & upper eyelid mostly on left eye. Cancer?
No: The best treatment for this is to put a wash cloth under very warm (not hot) water and hold it over the lid. Do this for 5 minutes at a time and 5 times per day. Terramycin will not penetrate a stye; antibiotics are not useful to treat a stye. ...Read more

Area on my lower jaw closest to the war is killing me, i also discivered a painful pimple-like whitehead on my stensen duct on left cheek..Any ideas?
jaw pain: Not sure what 'war' is but it may be tooth related, like a wisdom tooth. When you are describing things like stensens duct, it seems you're doing a lot of 'searching'. In fact most wouldn't know how a normal stensen's duct would appear and it's unlikely it's causing lower jaw pain as it's an upper cheek/jaw structure. See an oral surgeon instead of trying to diagnose yourself. ...Read more
