I was pulling apart the mascara on my eyelashes w-a safety pin & poked my eyeball-its not hurting, have contact in?

Secondly, its important to get an eye exam, because, not to scare you, but there are certain cancerous lesions that can cause your eyelashes to fall out, especially if you're light skinned, and older than 40yo, and a long history of sun exposure.

I've had a small chalazion above my upper eyelashes for about a year. I scratched at it when removing makeup and now tender if I pull at lid. Tx??

I have a small white bump on my eyelash line, there is no swelling, no pain. I have popped it serval times and it keeps coming back. what is it?
Likely a Stye: Hello It sounds like a stye. This is a common eye lid injection that many people have. You could treat it with warm compresses four times a day. To make the compress get a clean tube sock, fill it with a small amount of rice, and tie off the tube sock. Put it in the microwave for about 20-30 secs or enough to make it warm and apply it to your eye about 4 times a day. If this gets worse see a doc. ...Read more
