I have a small skin colored bump on my lower waterline of my eye, it is not painful just slight irritation. It has been there for about a week and I have not used make up. I am just wondering how to treat it?

Thanks for your query.

The image you have attached is blurr and could not make out clearly.

If you can send another one with good clearance I would be able to be specific in opinion.

Based on the description you provided I would consider the lesion to be a Stye which is inflammation of the oil gland on the edge of eyelid.

This condition can be well treated with eye ointments , I would advice you once I am confirmed of the diagnosis by looking at a better picture.

Please do send.
