white lump in the corner

Hi there, i have this weird white spot on the skin near the corner of each eye, it's kinda grisly and not just a normal spot. it's slightly raised and just hard. It looks horrible and i just wanted to know if any of u could give me an idea of what it is or how to get rid of it? Thanx

Re: white lump in the corner

Hello reah and welcome to the boards.

I too have the same thing you describe. I get them on the outer corners of each eye. The only way that I can seem to get rid of them is to do surgery on myself. I sterilize a sewing needle and poke the center slightly because it seems that there are no nerve ending so I don't feel any pain with them. The end result looks like a hard white pimple.

I have searched high and low about this topic and it seems that no one else has this condition. Nor have I went to a dermatologist about them either.

Hopefully someone can shed some light and help us with our symptoms.

Good Luck in your search....

Have either one of you seen a doctor about it? That might be a good place to go to figure out what you have.

Re: white lump in the corner

whoa with the self surgery! 'ya know as much as i personally hope my current doctor is wrong they do have the added benefit of medical school. Generally I would say that qualifies them to preform surgical procedures.

ok on to the white bump, it sounds like a cysts especially since you talked about looking like a hard white pimple. Under normal curcumstances a dermo or Gp would just lance it out or let it go away with time.

Unless you have these in multiple places they are not normally anything to worry about and ladies can sometimes be worsened or appear around hormonal times.

Best of luck resolving it and aroudn your eye go the doc
