Mysterious flesh colored bump under the eye, prescribed erythromycin gel, no help. Solution ?

I woke up one morning and had a mysterious bump under my eye. My family doctor assured me it is not a mole, stye, skin tag, or calcium deposit. It is flesh colored but sometimes appears to be a little red. He told me that it is only on the epidermis and it is not very big. He said it seems to LOOK like a pimple , but is not a pimple and prescribed erythromycin gel that did not make the bump go away.
