Left untreated can have brain abscess. Get this checked immediately, better safe than sorry. Sorry to alarm you but it is important to get evaluated and there is no other way to diagnose but with an in person physical exam. ...Read more

I've been noticing a white pimple at the corner of my eye lid. My eyes are itchy, dry and hurts when I touch it. Any suggestions?

Pimple: You might have a stye, or hordeolum. This is caused by a blocked oil gland in the eyelid-- it is often tender to the touch. It can be treated conservatively with hot compresses and topical antibiotic for a few weeks. Sometimes, surgery is needed to drain the stye. If the bump is in the inner corner, you may have a blocked, infected tear draininge duct- this should be checked by your eye doctor. ...Read more
