Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Just Answer
Are you available for chat now?
You are right that such a yellowish mark is usually due to raised cholestrol levels. It does not require any treatment as such.
It is called as xanthelesma.
i am trying to
get my cholestrol
down, will this
No, it will not disappear even if you try to reduce the cholestrol levels now. But that should not deter you from trying to reduce the cholestrol level as it is going to be beneficial to the rest of the body.
For cosmetic purpose large xanthelasma can be surgically removed. The moderate ones are treated by CO2 lasers also.
But no amount of medicines will be helpful here.
If you are concerned about the appearance then you can contact a dermatologist as they have the expertise to remove these at office by laser or chemical treatment.
Otherwise the small ones can be best left alone.
Is there any other information you would like to ask?
this image shows a typical appearance of xanthelasma
Of course the number, size, position may vary from person to person.
Sorry, i had to take a phone call. Thank you for your help. So you say maybe they can be removed
Yes , depending on their size the method or removal is decided by the dermatologist.
