Syringoma is harmless and caused by the overgrowth of cells from sweat glands. Diagnosis is with a biopsy of the skin by your dermatologist. Though there is a risk of scarring, destruction of syringomas may include: burning or cauterization, cutting out, carbon dioxide laser treatment, dermabrasion or cryosurgery. Talk to your doctor which option is best for you. Direct clinical examination is important with the evaluation.
Take care and keep us posted.
It is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis without clinical examination,but the various possibilities for your symptoms are syringoma(a non-cancerous (benign) bump usually found on the upper cheeks and lower eyelids of young adults. Syringomas are completely harmless and are caused by the overgrowth of cells) or milia(common non-cancerous (benign)lesions formed when skin does not slough off normally).
Treatemnt of syringoma and milia is by electrocautery ,cryotherapy,laser or surgical excision.Also use eye creams with the least amount of ingredients possible to avoid irritating the delicate thin eye area. Also, gently touch the eyes and avoid rubbing the eyes vigorously so as not to damage the skin.Also use good quality sunscreens when going out in the sun.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional doubts.
Thanks for the advise, it is much appreciated. I had the lesions assessed under a biopsy about 6 years ago.
I think I will try try the cauterization method of treatment as I have already tried the yag laser, which i believe is similar to CO2 laser. Several lesions were treated and whilst they were flattened, they were still visable.
I am reluctant to have eye bag removal as this seems a bit drastic and expensive.
