I woke up with a very dark red mark under my eye in the corner. It's not sore or puffy. I thought maybe I hit myself in my sleep?
Need to examine:
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. If there are no symptoms and your eyesight is okay, you may watch and wait. If the lesion ulcerates, bleeds or gets bigger, it would be prudent to see a doctor. Change in the color of the spot is not of concern.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. ...Read more
