Dear XXXXXXX

Thanks for the query.

Tiny eye boils which are unchanged since 1967 does not seem concerning. Such hardly progressing bumps are most often than not benign and harmless conditions.

The close possibilities for such bumps are
1. Syringomas - these are benign and harmless tumour involving sweat ducts.
2. Xanthelasma - tiny fatty deposits under the skin.

Both the conditions are relatively harmless and require no intervention. If they are bothering you, you can plan to get them removed surgically.

Hope I have been able to address your concern. Let me know if you need any other information. If you have no more queries, please close this discussion.

Wish you good health

Regards

Dear XXXXXXX

Both the conditions I mentioned are close possibilities. If the lesions are tiny and pale (not yellow), syringoma is more likely than xanthelasma.

I wish I was able to examine those spots personally and give you the diagnosis. However like I mentioned in my first response, this is not something very serious and threatening.

You can visit your ophthalmologist or dermatologist and get this removed safely. Laser treatment would be the preferred method of removal. Your local doctor can refer you to a competent specialist to perform the procedure.

Hope this is helpful. Let me know if you need any other information.
If you have no more queries, do close this discussion.

Best Regards
Dr. Prasad

Hi,

I understand your concern. But if you are looking for a cure of these papules (syringomas) surgical removal either by a scalpel or carbodioxide laser therapy is the option. Conservative treatment by medical drugs or topical creams is not efficient to treat the papules. So consulting a dermatologist would be essential.

As far as referring you a best doctor at Belgium, I am sorry I am unable to give useful information. It would be inappropriate to name a doctor practising from a different part of the world. Your local doctor can help you in this regards.

Hope this information suffices. I will be glad to answer any other follow-ups if any.

Best Regards
Dr. Prasad
