You: You should see an ophthalmologist. Typical conservative treatment involves warm compresses and antibiotic drops such as Azasite antibiotic drops, which seem to penetrate the lid tissue, may be useful. If there is significant inflamation, oral antibiotics may be useful as well. The bump is probably an chalasion, which is a swelling in the eyelid from a blockage in the meibomian gland, that secretes meibomian fluid as part of the tear solution. If the bump is not going away, a quick surgical procedure in the office can usually resolve the problem. ...Read more

A small bump formed in my eyelid after a stye went away a week ago what can it be? I have a small flat bump in my top left eyelid. Its not very visible but I can feel it with my finger and at times when I blink. It immediatly followed the stye I had got r

Probably stye: Styes are accumulation of greasy oily material in the eyelids that occur when the eyelid oil glands become plugged up. Why this happens is unknown, but it is a fairly common problem. If the stye is small it will usually respond to application of warm compresses. If it becomes enlarged and swollen then it may require surgical drainage. An eye examination would be prudent. ...Read more

I just discovered a small white bump on the inside of my upper eyelide, it's irritating and I need to left up eyelid in order to see it?

See your eye special: Ist to make sure you don't have an internal stye developing known as a chalazion that is a plugged meibomian gland. You can try to decompress it by using warm compresses for 15 minutes 4 times a day. If that doesn't help, you will need to see your eye doctor, who can drain it, by lancing it carefully to open the gland punta better. See if you can do the compresses now. ...Read more

I have a small white bump (cist) that just appeared on the inside of my left eyelid. Is there anything special I should do to treat this?

Depends where it is: If it is at the edge of the lid near the base of the lashes, and there is no redness, it may be a cyst or an ingrown eyelash. If there is surrrounding redness then it may be a stye. If warm compresses do not improve it within a couple of days, you should have it evaluated by an eye doctor in order to determine how best to treat it. ...Read more
