Irritating bump in the tissue below the white of eye.

I have 3 small bumps in the pink tissue
Under the eyeball (below the white of the eye)
They feel like something is in my eye. But
They don't look like usual styes because
They are circular or oval but have a dull pink dot?
I the center or are indented in the center.  I have a photo. Can I post it on your site?

The photo is out of focus but it looks to be a eye lid problem. The whitish color usually indicates oil or Sebum.  The most likely diagnosis is sebaceous inclusion cyst.  You can try warm compresses, commercial like cleaner and sometimes they will open and drain. If you feel it and not go away would need to see ophthalmologist Eye MD to make definitive diagnosis and remove (which is usually quite simple)

Thank you. What type of cleaner, is this something you put in the eye? I do use eyelid scrub and heat the lid twice a day for Blepharitis. So I will increase the frequency.
This is a good lid wipe:  https://www.amazon.com/OCuSOFT-Scrub-Plus-Pre-Moistened-Count/dp/B000US084U
Thank you. I do use those types of lid scrubs once a day. Heat the eyelids twice a day.

That is about all you can do.  If it irritates you see an ophthalmologist. Easy to remove.
I responded but it didn't go through. I do use OCuSoft Scrub Plus eye lid wipes. Once a day  in addition to heating  twice a day. I increased to three times a day due to this problem. I am trying to do 4.
thanks

Good luck. Probably 50/50 will go away vs have to be removed.

I will put a couple of more photos on my home page. Hope they are better.  The larger one is in the corner of the eye.

Nothing looks ominous but the clarity of the photo is not sufficient to do more than guess which I won't do.
