A few days ago I noticed two rather painful small pimple-like bumps under my left eye. It made the whole lower eyelid (where bags are under the eye) swell up a bit and hurt when I blinked. After a day or so they popped like a small pimple would releived some ofthe pain and seeming to start to heal. But then I noticed two more, identical to the ones under the left eye, under my right eye, just below my eyelashes with the same symptoms. My eyes feel a bit dry and swollen but it's not very noticable appearancewise. What could this be? I don't think it's a sty because it's under both eyes and it's not right on the eyelid or lining of the eye where the lashes are. Please help!
you can treat these the same way you treat them if they had been on your eyelids. keep them clean, use some sort of dematological clensing soap since they are NOT near your eye, put some warm compresses on them 2-3 times per day...
Thanks. It just seems strange that they are like identical to each other and in the same place. Two little ones right below my eye both about 1cm from my tear ducts. Also, I don't tend to get pimples often so it's more puzzling because of their rarity.
