Lumps around a child's eyebrows can not only appear due to pimples or boils. It could also, these lumps arise due to other reasons, such as abscesses, preseptal cellulitis, sebaceous cysts, insect bites or other animals, contact dermatitis, and other benign or malignant tumors. Handling of lumps as your sister experienced can vary depending on the cause. Therefore, it must be ascertained first what is the exact cause of the lump.
Boils can appear on any part of the body, including around the eyebrows. This boil occurs due to infection of the hair root. Boils are often marked with a reddish lump, painful, felt warm, small-medium-to large, and has a whitish point in the middle because it contains pus. Not infrequently, some boils gather to form 1 larger mass with more than 1 eye.
You should consult your sister's complaints directly to the doctor, dermatologist, or pediatrician. Depending on the cause, the doctor can give you several types of drugs, perform surgery, or also recommend other examinations (such as biopsy) so that your sister's complaints are handled properly. After handling, your brother's condition can continue to imprint for a long time, or not. This is also influenced by the cause of the lump, the treatment given, and the genetic predisposition of your own sister.
For now, you can do the following:
Do not press or rub the lump If the lump feels painful, apply a warm compress first. Help your sister maintain her cleanliness, including routinely washing her face using the right soap specifically for children.
