Small Bump Under Eye
Small bump under eye the size of a pea im 21 healthy no medical problem, I noticed this little bump a couple of days ago
You: You may have a chalazion. A chalazion is a blocked oil gland. There is a row of oil gland openings on the eyelid at the base of the eyelashes. The oil glands are supposed to secrete oil that perculates over your tears to prevent evaporation of your tears. The opening can get clogged by dead skin cells, environmental debris, and by the oil itself. When the opening becomes clogged, the factory further down the lid still makes the oil, but it cannot get out. So the area enlarges with oil which is trapped. The trapped oil is warm, stagnant, and becomes infected. The body then walls it off to prevent the infection from spreading behind the lid-- which is communiucation with the orbit-- which can communicate with the brain. The walled-off oil becomes hard like a firm pea or lentil. Try using warm compresses, as warm as you can tolerate without burning your skin, for 10 minutes 4 times a day. If it does not change after a week, see your ophthalmologist to get it drained. If it becomes red and swollen, see your ophthalmologist because the infection could be spreading and may require oral antibiotics and drainage. ...Read more
