Small Reddish Nodules On The Lower Eyelid?
In the afternoon, I had just given birth a month ago, but my lower eyelids appeared as soft lumps of red like the blood of small nodules. Initially it was small but now it’s getting bigger. Then it starts to interfere with the eyes. Some people are weird. Continued like there was suppuration, but there was a little pus, but I think the eye discharge … I want to ask what is that and why? Then is it dangerous? Please answer yes, thank you.

Small reddish, festering pustules appear on the lower eyelid that are likely to indicate an infection. Or, this nodule can also arise due to other causes, such as irritation, allergies, benign or malignant tumors on the eyelids.
You need to know, in many eyelids there are glands whose function is to produce oil, sweat, and as a place for eyelashes to grow. This gland can become inflamed, often due to infection. This infection is prone to occur if you do not maintain your eye hygiene properly.
