Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Ok. just so I understand where this thing is. Between your eyeball and your nose, your eyelids come together and form a little bump that you can feel with your index finger. Where in relation to this bump/where your lids come together, is this thing?
Does it go all the way away when it gets better?
Ok. So, from what you have said, it seems that this is on the meaty part of your upper eyelid, right near the meat of your nose. Am I picturing this correctly?
Well, this could be a couple of things. It might be a subQ cyst, a early chalazion, a lipoma (wouldn't change like yours is though...) or it could be a lacrimal duct cyst/infection.
That is how I was picturing it...thanks.
There are a few ways you could go. You could either try some home therapy over the weekend and see if things improve, or you could skip all of that and see an ophthalmologist tomorrow......what would you like to do at this point?
If I could see and touch you I'd be able to tell you exactly what is going on, but using the internet as my only diagnostic tool kinda limits me :(
You sound like my wife....she just loves to use antibiotics that are sitting around lol!
Without knowing what is going on I don't think throwing antibiotic at it is a good idea. And while you have not told me if you are male or female, if it is the latter I'm sure you don't want a yeast infection for nothing....
Yes, if it is something under the skin a surgeon can cut into it....we love to do that lol!
I would suggest an ophthalmologist. The student health center (Called the Quack shack in my day) should have an eye doctor available
