very small bump under skin of lower eyelid

I have a small bump under the skin of my lower eyelid. It looks like a stye, which I have gotten before, but it's further below the lash line than they usually are and I've had it for about 5 months. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? I wear eyeliner and am not always the most proficient at washing it off at the end of night. Could it have something to do with that? It's small and only really bothers me when I touch it while putting on eyeliner or drops in my eyes. I'm trying to determine whether I should go to the doctor or not. Thanks for your help!!!

Re: very small bump under skin of lower eyelid

sounds like milia to me. I get these as well. You can look them up and see if it is what you have. They are hard bumps nearly impossible to get rid of. I get them around my eyes/lids.

Re: very small bump under skin of lower eyelid

it may be a chalazia, which probably doesn't require medical attention unless it grows large of obstructs your vision. visit your pharmacist for advice on over the counter remedies and try to keep it clean.
