Having sharp short pains on my head, not like pins and needles when something "falls asleep" but like I just got poked with a small sewing needle.?

Need more info: I really need more information to answer this question. What location of your head does occur? Do you get any associated symptoms with the stabbing headaches? Blurry vision, double vision, fluid leakage from ears or nasal passages, headaches worsened in light, weakness of arms and /or legs, neck pain? Any history of closed head injury? First I would start with a brain mri. ...Read more

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

Exam: As mild as your symptoms appear, it still is very important to have an Eye MD check your eye for any subtle injury (and to the contact lens). Just a superficial poke could introduce a contaminate into the corneal surface (or deeper) resulting in a bad infection. Is is doubtful that you perforated your eyeball with so little discomfort, but you never know. Safety pins & eyes don't belong together. ...Read more

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'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??

Warm soaks to start: Chalazion is a swelling in the eyelid caused by chronic inflammation of a small oil producing gland (meibomian gland). It is usually localized as a pea-like lump and is a reaction to trapped oil secretions which may become secondarily infected. When small and without symptoms, it may disappear without treatment. If large, it may cause blurred vision. Treatment includes warm soaks and antibiotics. ...Read more

My eyelashes have fallen out in a small patch on one eye. It has been a couple of weeks and they don't seem to be growing back! What should I do?

My eyelashes have fallen out in a small patch on one eye. It has been a couple of weeks and they don't seem to be growing back! What should I do?

Eye exam: I would allow more time to grow than two weeks first of all, before you start worrying. 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. Go see your eyemd ;-). ...Read more

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

Today morning there was a tiny drop of blood which was clotted and it sticking on my left bottom eyelid between eyelashes. Is this a disease symptom?

There's one small section on my right eye where my eyelashes fell out. I used revitalash a few years ago and they came back. Now there gone again?

Sparse eye lash: The size and shape of the lashes are genetically driven. If there is section of lid lack the lashes means there might be previous infection or inflammation might have resulted in scarring. If revitalash helped you can continue to use them. Many times nothing would work, you are fortunate you have a remedy. ...Read more

I have small patches of vitiligo on my face. My left eyebrow and eyelashes are 60 white. Could this affect my eye-sight?

Vitiligo and Vision: People with vitiligo may have some abnormalities in their retinas (the inner layer of the eye that contains light-sensitive cells) and some variation of color in their irises (the colored part of the eye). In some cases, there is some inflammation of the retina or iris, but vision is usually not affected. ...Read more

My left eyelid is a purpleish reddish color, a tiny bit puffy and a little sore to the touch right above my eyelashes. Why is it like this?

Blepharitis..: .is inflammation of the eyelids. It occurs when tiny oil glands near the base of the eyelashes become clogged. It is not contagious nor does it cause damage to your eyesight.

Why do skin tags appear? I have one tiny skin tag that is starting to appear in my upper eyelid near by my eyelashes.

Why do skin tags appear? I have one tiny skin tag that is starting to appear in my upper eyelid near by my eyelashes.

Skin tag: A skin tag is a small flap of tissue that hangs off the skin by a connecting stalk. They are said to be caused by bunches of collagen and blood vessels which are trapped inside thicker bits of skin. They are believed to be the result of skin rubbing against skin. That is why they are generally found in skin creases and folds. Your dermatologist can remove a skin tag by cutting it off with scissors. ...Read more

I'm a 20 y.O. Male and I just noticed a tiny bump right below my eye/eyelash. It is not red or painful, just a noticeable bump like pimple. What is it?

Several possible: Numerous skin lesions could match your description. Most likely are epithelial inclusion cyst, skin tag, papilloma, lid margin nevus, small chalazion among others. Malignant lesions like basal cell carcinoma are possible, but quite rare at this age. You should be examined by an ophthalmologist for diagnosis and advice, including possible removal or biopsy if the lesion is suspicious or bothering. ...Read more

No other problem?: Seems you were fortunat. Do pay attention, but if nothing unusual shows, you are probably fine. If you are over 60, there is some risk for internal bleeding to build up over a few days, but just be alert to anything odd. Be more careful about collisions with furniture. ;-) ...Read more

Mom has Weird mole with white head in it?? The tiny white piece that is poking out from the mole is hard, not soft like puss. What is this? Scary.

MD evaluation: Moles can range from benign lesions to malignancies. The description may be a benign sebaceous cyst or may represent an early malignancy like KeratoAcanthoma. However, because a lesion has benign cell types, does not mean that it cannot cause serious problems. The best advice for your mother is to allow a knowledgeable dermatologist or Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to evaluate. ...Read more

Doubt tumor: Head dyscomfort symptoms are like snow flakes. Rarely do 2 people describe the same type of symptoms based on their perception. You wont' find anything in the literature about a ping pong sensation in your head. After 23 hears I have learned that unusual sensations like this that haven't been described in the literature mean nothing. Ping pong sensation can point to middle ear issue. ...Read more
