I have just noticed a couple of flesh-coloured raised flat

Customer Question

I have just noticed a couple of flesh-coloured raised flat areas (not real bumps, definitely not milia or pimples etc..) under my left eye. What can they be?
I have been using a rich eye concealer lately = a new exfoliating cream.. I also have a cold + I am in the middle of my menstrual period. Any triggers?

It appears you can be having a allergic reaction to the concealer or block oil gland. I'd recommend you stop the concealer for now and use warm compresses to the area. If they persist, you should see your doctor for evaluation.
