My Dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
the bubble most likely is a pingicula.
That has to be there for some time,and not associated with redness.
If so it does not require any tt and remains asymptomatic ,does not cause any difficulty.
If it is of recent occurence,or has redness and pain then the diagnosis is different,and the get back to me with further details.

My Dear,
if not associated with redness it is likely to be pingicula,fo which nothing is to be done.
i would have beenhappier to have a close up photograph to see the lesion to be absolutely sure.
