Get it checked: This should be evaluated by a doctor, preferably one who deals with facial lesions commonly like a dermatologist, otolaryngologist, or plastic surgeon. It probably is not anything of major concern, but you will feel better if you know what it is and how to best treat it. ...Read more

Worth getting seen: We can't diagnose you at a distance, but this is worth discussing with your physician, now if it is new, or at your regular appointment if it is not. This may be anything from the "adenoma sebaceum" of mild tuberous sclerosis to early deformity from rosacea to sebaceous hyperplasia. I'll bet on the last. ...Read more

Probable non-pigment: This is probably a mole of some type and totally benign. However it is always best to show it to your regular doctor on the next visit for an opinion. If in the meantime it gets irritated, changes color or size have it seen sooner than later by a dermatologist for careful evaluation. ...Read more

A cyst: Cysts around the eyes and eyelids are quite common. They generally are due to obstruction of a hair follicle, or glands such as sebaceous or sweat glands. A bubble appearance sounds most like a retention cyst to me. It may likely need to be excised surgically, so I would schedule an appointment with your ophthalmologist for evaluation and treatment. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Vestibulitis: Can be associated with a dry nose, picking at the area, or using q-tips inside the nose. You can get a low grade bacterial colonization of the hairs inside the nasal skin(vestibule). This creates a chronic irritation, crustiness, and sometimes clear discharge with occasional blood in it. See an ENT for treatment, usually ointments and antibiotics. However, other problems need to be ruled out. ...Read more
