Had a pimple on eye bag. Bursted. Now a small lump, black swollen eye bag. Cyst, normal pimple?

hello doctor,
months back i had this pimple on my right eye bag, which i did foolishly burst. it did pain for few days but later i totally forgot about it as the pain wore off. but yesterday i observed that when i touched my eye bag, i could feel a tiny hard lump underneath my skin. moreover my eye bag has become accentuated because that area has become a little blackened and swelled. Is it cyst? or a normal pimple?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is not possible to say the diagnosis from the location alone...
Swelling is from injury - it is not wise to prick it; it may lead to infection, which can spread deeper.
Blackness is from blood below...
See a dermatologist - you may need antibiotic - local and/or systemic..

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
