What could be causing me to have an eye lid bump?


Answer by  flygirl (46)

It could be caused by keeping the eye makeup on for a long time, especially overnight. Make sure you always remove eye makeup before going to sleep. It could be something more serious, so if doesn't go away in a couple of days, you should go see a doctor.

Depending on actual location the bump could be a chalazion. Chalazions can occur from backed up glands in the eyelid. Styes by comparison occur on the lid rim and are smaller and sometimes white in color. Chalazions can be removed by in office surgical excision. A stye is alleviated by way of routine warm moist compress.

It could be that you have a clogged tear duct. That is more common in babies. It could also be an infection and the area would be red and swollen. If the area is red or has a white center use a cold cloth 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off and see if that helps.

Mostly likely you have what is called a stye, an infection of the sebaceous glands near your These glands lubricate the skin and hair of animals. The infection usually goes away on its own in a week or so, but see your doctor if you get them often.

It could be a sty, a white head, or an allergic reaction to make-up. Have it checked by a doctor.
