Growth on the white part of the eye, between the colored part and the inside and outside corners of the eye, can occur from either a pterygium
or pinguecula. apinguecula is a kind of accumalation of fat in the white part of the eye( conjunctiva). Sometimes its adjoining conjunctiva might get inflammed and cause redness around it and some amount of pain or discomfort. It responds well to anti-inflammatory eye drops such as fluoromethalone, 1 drop 4 times a day. Being a prescription medicine, you would need to consult an ophthalmologist
for confirmation of diagnosis and treatment.
Pterygium is a slow growing conjunctival degeneration, occuring due to exposure to UV radition of the sunlight, from long hours hours spent outdoors . Even this can get inflammed and cause growth with localised redness.
But what is different here is that you have noticed the growth only 4 days back ( both these conditions are chronic and are usually seen over weeks or months). I would suggest that you get your eyes examined by an Ophthalmologist for a closer look on the slit lamp( special equipment in the ophthalmologist's office). Once done it would be easier to make a correct diagnosis and start specific treatment.
Other conditions with similar growth are conjunctival cyst, nodular episcleritis . But I guess without a slit lamp examination it would be very difficult to make a correct diagnosis.
Continue the erythromycin ointment only if it is an eye
ointment. Otherwise just use lubricating eye drops such as refresh tears , 1 drops 4 times a day, till you get your eye examined .Thank you and best wishes.
