This could be a xanthelesma. If you can send me a photo then I would be in a better position to comment upon it. Thanks.

Since my wife do not want to take a picture, but it is very symetrical location upper top inner side close to her nose of her eye lid. What can we do to get rid of this or is it a sign of bigger problem?
Expert:  Dr.S Riaz replied 7 years ago.

As I said earlier, it looks like xanthelasma to me as it is apinless and symmetrical and also seems to be near the inner canthus of the eye. It may be associated with diabetes or high cholesterol. So she can get a blood sugar and lipid profile done. A lot no. of cases may have no identifiable cause. Several treatment options are there and include surgery, laser, chemical cauterization etc.To read more about it and also see pictures, you can follow this link - http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1213423-overview. Thanks and best wishes.
