Small Lumps On The Whites Of The Eyes?
Greetings, doctor, r n r nAfter waking up from a nap suddenly my right eye felt itchy and after I looked in the mirror I saw a small rash on the white part of the eye and sometimes felt tingling / painful … What do you think, doctor, then the treatment How? Is there anything natural first to treat it?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
The lump on the white of the eye that you are complaining about can be any of the following conditions:
Pterygium: reddish white membrane that is triangular in shape, can grow to the black part of the eye (cornea)
Pseudopterigium: similar to pterygium, but not all surfaces are attached to the eye. Often caused by eye trauma, for example after being scratched
Pingueculae: yellowish lumps that are a buildup of fat, protein, and calcium
Bitot's spot: a flat, white bump that results from a vitamin A deficiency
Inflammation of the sclera / episclera (scleritis / episcleritis): this inflammation sometimes results in the formation of a red lump in the white area of the eye (sclera)
Malignancy / cancer
To ascertain the cause of the complaint, you should further consult an ophthalmologist to be examined directly. The doctor will further explore the course of your disease and will perform a detailed examination of the area around the eye. If necessary, the doctor will perform supporting examinations such as a sonde test, biopsy, or blood test. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for you according to the underlying condition.
The things you need to do to prevent worsening and improve the condition are:
Do not rub your eyes as this could cause irritation or infection
Wash hands before touching the eyes / area around the eyes
Don't press or try to pick up the lump
Use sunglasses to prevent eye irritation and exposure to UV rays
Balanced nutritious food, multiply antioxidants such as fruits and vegetables to meet the needs of vitamins and minerals
Rest your eyes. Don't have too much activity in front of the screen
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
