There Is A Bump Above The Eye?
Hello, so on top of my eyelids there is a lump / bump (?) That is pink. I was confused between acne and mosquito bite marks. At first I didn’t know, it itchy above my eyelids so I scratched slowly, but I felt a lump, then I found out. Yes, now it doesn’t really itch but if it blinks you feel something above. I am confused, how should I do?
Hello Minyoongi, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com, I will try to answer your question.
Lumps in the eye kelopa can lead to several diseases, the most common are:
Hordeolum. Lumps that occur in the eye are caused by a bacterial infection in the eyelid gland (Meibom's gland / Zeiss gland). It can occur on the outer or inner eyelids. Can heal quickly if handled properly, which is about 3-10 days. Symptoms that are usually felt such as pain, especially when the head is bowed down, sometimes itching, there is a sensation in the eye, but does not cause reduced vision. Kalazion. The swelling is almost the same as the hordeolum, it's just that it lasts longer, can be weeks or months even though topical medicine has been given to the swollen area. There is no pain, no heat, only a lump sensation in the eye. Can disappear with antibiotics and lump removal. Allergy. Caused by the immune response to allergens / substances that cause allergies, which have a side effect of producing certain chemicals that cause the tissue around the eyelids to become swollen. When the allergy is over, the eyelids will look like normal. Without checking directly, it is impossible for a doctor to provide the right treatment, because the diagnoses are still too varied and uncertain according to the patient's / patient's condition. So I suggest that you immediately have your eyes checked by a doctor to be treated appropriately according to the underlying cause.
Some things that you can do yourself at home before checking into a doctor include:
Wash your hands before handling your eyes. Do not rub your eyes too often. Keep your eyes clean. Use glasses when you go outside, in direct contact with sunlight, and in hot and dusty environments. So much information from me, hope it is useful. Thank you
