Bumps Under The Eyes?
, I want to ask. I have a pimple under my eye bag, but it’s not a pimple. The lump looks like it’s been bitten by an ant. It’s been 2-3 weeks and it hasn’t gone away.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Bumps that appear under the eyes as if bitten by ants can have various causes, for example:
Insect bites Xanthelasma Preseptal cellulitis Skin irritation, for example from scratching or rubbing with sharp objects Contact dermatitis Atopic dermatitis Infections, such as folliculitis, impetigo Hypertrophic scars Tumors Burns (eg due to oil splashes), etc. Do the lumps appear elsewhere? Does the lump feel very annoying, cause itching, pain, or other complaints?
If yes, then you should check the lump directly to the doctor. Through direct inspection, the doctor can usually determine the cause of the lump and determine what kind of treatment is appropriate to overcome it. If it is suspected to be dangerous, the doctor can refer you to a dermatologist and genital specialist.
In the meantime, don't touch or scratch the lump excessively. Wash your face regularly 2 times a day using a mild cleansing soap that is suitable for your skin type. Protect facial skin from exposure to pollution, smoke, and excessive dry air.
Hope it helps ya..
