Are purple spots on my eye dangerous?

Are purple spots on my eye dangerous?

Probably not: While they are probably not dangerous, it is difficult to tell you what they are without seeing them. Probably the best advise would be to see an ophthalmologist who can help you.

See an Eye MD: Dark circles under the eyes only rarely represent any disease. The skin there is so thin that you can see your own blood circulation through the skin. There is no effective treatment for this, but you should see an eye md to be sure it does not represent some health problem.

See your doctor: You have too many conditions happening at the same time to be able to address them here, without having a physical examination done by your doctor. It sounds like it's time to be seen for your annual physical, and to address these concerns with her/him. After the exam, s/he will know what other tests to order. You may want to have your vitamin d3, and micronutrient level checked as well.

You really need to: Have this checked out! Your eye doctor can see it iunder a slit lamp microscope and tell you exactly what's going on. Any inflammation will have dilated capillaries surrounding it. The key is to get to it early, and see what else is going on INSIDE the eyeball too! So, don't delay! It may be nothing, and then it may be something! We can't diagnose on this forum, but your doctor can! Call now!

Lesions: All suspicious lesions that are pigmented - and have changed in appearance (border irregularity) or grown deserve a biopsy to ensure its not a cancer. See your primary physician to be sure.

Picture please: It'd help so much better if a picture of it was sent for review. Also, historical data - how long it's been there, is it growing or changing? Anything make it worse? These things matter so you would need to either supply this info here or take your child to a local doc.

I have a purple spot on my right bicep the size of an eraser head. I don't recall hitting it on anything. Doesn't hurt. Been there 3 or 4 days. Ideas?

Unlikely dangerous: Unlikely to be anything to be concerned about if it has only been there a few days. Will likely vanish on it's own. If it persists or worsens, have someone look at it.
