What do these spots look like? Do they look like skin tags? Colored? Flat or raised? Size? Soft or Hard? Movable or immovable? Are they near the margin of the eyelid or towards the outer parts of the eyelid?

Can you take a picture of them with a digital camera and attach them to one of your posts to me?

These can be anything from cysts, to papillomas (which are crusty looking lesions with blood vessels noticeable in them), to skin tags, to even cancerous lesions. Do you have any way of taking a picture of them and attaching it to your next message (using the paper clip icon in the window you type in)?
