Apply heat asap: You may have stye developing; apply hot towel without burning your skin to eyelids. If you do this 20-50 times per session (hot towel in hot water over your stye (avoid pushing on eye); re-heating when towel gets cold (like hot towel push ups), it will open the meibomian gland and allow the stye to resolve usually less than 3-4d. See eyemd otherwise.

I have a red pimple on my eye lid. I've had to for over a year now. How can I get it removed?

Need to see:: Ophthalmologist. A surgical specialist of the eyes, who can diagnose and treat the condition. It sounds like a stye, but hard to say definitively without examination.

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.

Inflammation: Emotional tears contain a large amount of sodium, unlike the normal tear which is low in sodium. The high salt content is irritating and can account for the red spots on her lid. Use a washcloth soaked in cool water to counter the problem.

See ophthalmologist: Bumps on the eyelid are usually an infection in a gland of the eyelid and are called a stye or hordeolum which can be external or internal. A chronic form of this is known as a chalazion. Small benign growths such as papillomas or other types of infection can occur in the eyelid. I would see an ophthalmologist to clarify the diagnosis and get treatment.

Hi I have a white pimple likw bump on the bottom eye lid it will get itchy n sometimes get sore?

Eyelid bump: It may be a stye or chalazion. Do not press it, use warm compresses 5-8 times a day and it will open on its own. Don't wear makeup while you have this. You can wash your eye with baby shampoos to keep it clean and to avoid getting more. If it does not go away in a few days go to doctor/ urgent care /telemedicine doctor for prescription antibiotics.

21yr old female fine lines on lower eye lid. Moderate acne pimples, not too oily skinned. What's the best skin care regime/routine? (Prefer organic)

Fine Lines & Acne: My first thought would be RetinA. This will help fine lines over time and acne. It is a form of Vitamin A. Also no smoking and wearing sunscreen will help prevent fine lines.

Whitehead/pimple looking white bump under bottom eye lid? Hurts when pushed on, attempted to pop as originally though it was a pimple? What is this?

Stye: Please do not attempt to pop this again. You do not want to damage your eye or your eyelid. Warm wet compresses a few times/day to soften the abscess so it will drain on its own is a common first line for treatment. If infection ensues one does need to see the doctor.

Stronger measures: Oral antibiotics or surgical incision may be required to cure this, so consultation with an ophthalmologist would be helpful.

Internal hordeolum: This is a stye. Treat with warm compresses for 15 minutes 4-6 times per day. If this does not resolve in a week or two may need to see your doc for assistance.

Styes??: Warm compresses often help, but if there is swelling it's best to get checked to make sure there isn't an associated infection. Keep your hands off the area - as much as you may want to rub etc it only complicates the problem. See your doc to make sure that there isn't a bacterial infection that needs treatment.

Probably a stye: Which is inflammation of one of the glands in the eye lids, will resolve on its own unless infected, can be helped with some warm compresses, if doesn't improve, see your doctor, best wishes

What: What you describe sounds like a chalazion or commonly known as a stye. Try placing a warm wash cloth on the lid three or four times daily. If the stye does not go away, there are other treatment options and surgical options you may discuss with your ophthalmologist. Styes can also be associated with lid margin disease. Lid margin disease is a common and frequently chronic inflammation of the eyelids. Symptoms include irritation, itching, and, occasionally, a red eye. This condition frequently occurs in people who tend to have oily skin, dandruff, or dry eyes. Bacteria normally reside on the skin, but in some people, they thrive in the skin at the base of the eyelashes. Nearby oil glands may be overactive, causing dandruff-like scales and particles to form along the lashes and eyelid margins, which can cause redness, stinging, or burning. Lid margin disease cannot be cured, but it can be controlled with a few simple, daily hygienic measures, such as the following: at least twice a day, place a warm, wet washcloth over your closed eyelids for a minute. Rewet it as it cools, two or three times. This will soften and loosen scales and debris. More important, it helps liquefy the oily secretions from the eyelids’ oil glands, which helps prevent the development of a chalazion, an inflamed lump in an eyelid oil gland. With your finger covered with a thin, wet washcloth, cotton swab, or commercial lint-free pad, gently scrub the base of the lashes for about 15 seconds per lid. When medications are necessary, they may include: artificial tears (over-the-counter eyedrops) to relieve symptoms of dry eye; antibiotics (oral or topical) to decrease bacteria on the eyelids; and steroids (short-term), to decrease inflammation. Medications alone are not sufficient to control lid margin disease; the application of warmth and detailed cleansing of the lashes daily is the key.

Chalazion: A persistent bump under the skin of the eyelid is usually a chalazion, a cyst which encloses the debris from the battle of your body to overcome what starts as a stye. If small it can be ignored but if it embarrasses or bothers you, see your ophthalmologist who can remove it in a quick office procedure.
