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

Bump: There are many possibilities and merely giving you a list of them is not really helpful. Almost all will be gone within a couple of weeks and nothing to be concerned about.

In this area, remember that oils from your hair may also be in play so that may need to be addressed as well. ...Read more
