Yellow patches under the eyes

I have these yellow patches under both my eyes. The one under my right eye is larger and longer than the one under my left eye. I went to my family doctor and she gave me som Elidel 1% cream to put on them, but it isn't working.

My blood work back in December 2009 was normal but at one time my cholesterol was a little high in June 2009. I am currently taking the weight loss pill, Adipex and have lost a total of 48 pounds since April 2009.

Could you please tell me what these yellow patches are? There are no dark rings or circles under my eyes, I get 7 - 8 hours of sleep a night. I do have asthma, but it is controlled with Singulair and Advair.

Dear snowmanswife,

I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD to determine whether these are cholesterol or fatty deposits and the best treatment regimen.
