bumps below eyebrow

My eight year old daughter had several small bumps on the crease of her eyelid.  They look like whiteheads but have been there for over three months now.  What could they possibly be?

Hi,

This could be milia or milk spots which are benign, keratin-filled cysts that can appear just under the epidermis. They are commonly associated with newborn babies but can appear on people of all ages. They are usually found around the nose and eyes, and sometimes on the genitalia. Primary milia found in infants tend to resolve on their own within several weeks, though they may persist for months.

Are there other signs or symptoms present? It would be best to see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Take care and regards.
