small white lumps under eyes

I have numerous small white lumps under both my eyes. I have tried searching the internet to see what they could be but the only thing I could find was milia which they definitely aren't. I once saw someone on TV who had the same thing and they said it coulod be caused by high cholesterol but I have had a test and I havent got that.
Does anyone know what might be causing them and if I can get rid of them.

I don't think they are. They're not actually spot like, they're just little white lumps. They don't itch or anything. I have seen other people with them but mine seem to be more obvious. Maybe it's something I can't do anything about and have to learn to live with!

Re: small white lumps under eyes

Hi, maybe I can give you a little info, I have syringoma, a non harmful tumor that attacks the sweat glands, only way to get rid of them is putting a needle under the tumor and zapping them w/ electricity. They are under my eyes, and all over my body, started w/a few of them then they spread all over in a few years. Or , my dad and brother have a calcium build up under their eyes, this also looks like a small white lump. They can't do anything about it, because the doctors in our small town won't do any removal around the eyes. However if your in a city i'm sure someone can do a removal for you. And it wouldn't hurt if you went to a do
ctor and get a proper dignostic.

I think those are Fordyce spots,they are little oil glands that are overactive,I have some on my lip,they are annoying I know,maybe you should go see a Derm to make sure though.
Some people don't make that money/They just run up on you and take that money/
