my fiance is having a hard time with his left eye lid..bumps

This answer was rated:

Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX my fiance is having a hard time with his left eye lid. He has bumps on his top eye lid. He says it doesn't ich or burn he can just feel it and there's I guess more popping up. Do you think its something bad that he should get looked at by someone or is it harmless?

Hello and thanks for your question. Do these bumps look like multiple tiny zits? Does he have them anywhere else besides this left upper eyelid? Over how long of a time did these crop up?


Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Yeah they do look like little tiny zits and they just starting popping up this morning. I just hope they aren't serious.

These sound like they are milia. They are benign, tiny cysts filled with keratin (a skin-material). They are more common in infants, but can also begin to be seen in early adulthood. These can sometimes happen because of trauma to the glands in the skin, but more often than not just arise for no apparent reason. Rarely they can be associated with serious skin conditions, but if there is no significant swelling, redness, or warmth of the surrounding skin or on the skin elsewhere on the body, then these usually are of no consequence other than cosmetic.


There are generally no known effective treatments for these bumps and they usually just have to go away on their own.
