Hi all! Well for the past few years I have been battling super high cholesterol (which is down now yay!) but I was plagued with these horrible yellowish globs on my eyelids! I have talked to tons of Dermatologists and even a Plastic Surgeon and surgery still doesn't guarantee results (who can afford thousands of dollars for surgery with only a maybe anyway). Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone else has figured out a good concealer that will actually cover these things? (I have spent hundreds already on concealers from drug store to MAC to tattoo covers and they're too far in the corners to use eye shadow, I'd have to wear black constantly). I even tried home remedies (garlic etc) I have fair skin so it's nearly IMPOSSIBLE to cover! Any suggestions?
Xanthelasma cause no harm, but can increase in size producing cosmetic blemish. The only treatment is removal by surgery with/without skin grafting (depending on the size of the lesion) or use of laser (CO2 Laser).
