White Patches Inside And Under The Eyelids?
I want to ask. There are white patches inside and under my eyelids. It hurts. I wonder why? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of white patches in and under the eyelid that feels pain may occur due to hordeolum, or often called staples by the layman. This condition occurs when the oil glands in the eyelid become inflamed, so that not only becomes pain and vaginal discharge, but it can also swell, and cause the eyes to feel lumpy, runny, and also more sensitive to light.
In addition to hordeolum, white spots you experience may also occur due to folliculitis, trichiasis, ectropion, entropion, contact dermatitis, milia, pinguecula, conjunctivitis, keratitis, and so on.
Not always this condition is dangerous. But more secure, you do direct yourself to a doctor or eye doctor. Some types of medication your doctor can prescribe to you, or maybe your doctor will recommend other therapeutic modalities.
In the meantime, we recommend that you first make the following efforts:
Do not carelessly squeeze or gouge the white spots that appear
Do not hold eyes, except with clean hands and washed first with antiseptic soap
Compress eyes with warm or cold water (choose which one makes you most comfortable)
Do not use excessive cosmetics around the eyes
Don't use contact lenses before, unless you have been allowed by the doctor who examined you
Protect eyes from getting in foreign objects, direct sunlight, and other irritants (such as dry air, dust)
First drops artificial tears when the pain in your eyes feels disturbing
Hope this helps ...
