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.

Paleness, excma, acne, chapped lips, bags under eyes all go away after living on a diet of just soy milk and water for 3+ days. Allergy related?

Paleness, excma, acne, chapped lips, bags under eyes all go away after living on a diet of just soy milk and water for 3+ days. Allergy related?

Most likely: But you cannot survive for long on this diet and thus should consider adding back other foods individually at weekly intervals to find out the actual culprit. I suspect that milk is the most likely culprit and thus should be added at the tailend of the diet. Consult an allergist if you need any help ...Read more

How do I treat a pimple under the eyelid.? Have a small pimple under my left eye that doesn't want to go away. The pimple feels like a hump.

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. ...Read more

I have very small pimple like bumps on my eye lid and on my left palm. What it could be? They are painless and in small clusters. Been there for months

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. ...Read more

Small pimple on white of eye appeared 2 weeks ago. Painless but sensitive & red. 2nd appeared last night. Now it's sore at times. Been using visine.

Pinguecula: Sounds like a pinguecula, which is a deposit/build up on the white part of the eye (sclera) due to uv light and dryness of the eyes. You can use artificial tears, and use a cap and/or sunglasses when outdoors. Stop the visine, and use artificial tears one drop 4 times a day. If it is not getting better see an eye md. ...Read more

A small white pimple like bump appeared in the corner of my inner upper eyelid. It is tender to the touch and irritating my eye. Is it likely a sty?

A small white pimple like bump appeared in the corner of my inner upper eyelid. It is tender to the touch and irritating my eye. Is it likely a sty?

Yes: 25 year old lady with upper eyelid bump and eye irritation. It is quite likely a sty or chalazion. You can use a warm compress applied to eye for a few minutes and then wash your eyelid/eyelash area with some baby shampoo. If the problem gets worse, see your physician for an exam because antibiotic ointment can be used. Try over the counter artificial tears for the eye dryness.
