Do you wear contacts?

Is your vision affected at all?

Are there any changes in the skin that you can see?

Do you have any other symptoms?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?

It is possible that you are at the early stages of a viral outbreak, such as shingles etc.

It might also be part of a very early stye, although this is less likely.

So. What should you do?

Watch the area over the weekend for any skin changes. If you get any pimples, change in skin texture etc then have your doctor take a look.

Otherwise, I'd just watch things and wait....

Does this make sense to you?

Don't forget to mash the positive (excellent is the most fun to push) feedback button.....without this important step on your part the funds you left on deposit are not released and my kids will spend another cold winter barefoot ;)

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
