Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Is red or inflamed?
No, just clear.
It sounds like you have a conjunctival retention cyst. This is a very common condition where a small, thin walled sac forms that contains clear fluid. In the vast majority of cases they resolve on their own and do not need treatment. If they are large enough to bother you or if they persist they can be "popped" with a needle, but with this treatment they can come back. To totally get rid of the (very rare) instances of conjunctival cyst it may be necessary to excise them under topical or local anesthesia in the ophthalmologists office. Of course, the surgery to remove the cyst and leave an edge where a new one could, theoretically,. form.....kinda a catch 22
I'm still not that fast of a typist :-)
The best thing to do is leave it alone. There is a high chance it will pop and go away by itself.
Does this make sense to you?
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX the last solution, and it makes sense... I have seen the same thing with cysts under the tongue when working as a dental assistant. Thanks, again.
