I have heard about cauterization , but I am afraid of undergoing any surgery and that too under the eye area

Historically , Syringoma are associated with women more than men and are though to occur as an over production of sweat gland tumors on the eyelid skin.
Syringomas are seen clinically as small raised bumps on the upper or lower eyelids and less commonly on the cheeks and temples.
Usually syringoma is removed by laser surgery or electric cauterization.
In Ayurveda, ALOE VERA gel is known for its healing properties and can also be applied on the scars. Do this regularly for best results.

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Munish Sood's  Response
1. Syringoma (hidradenomes eruptifis) are usually benign and mostly of cosmetic concern, and are usually found below the eyes, due to overgrowth of cells from sweat glands.
2. any family history?
3. since suffering from last 8 years, it will be presumed that other causes like Xanthelasma, trichoepitheliomas,diabetes, and congenital conditions are ruled out.
4. because they are usualy harmless, they doesn't need any treatment, except at times they can be frustrating,so for cosmetic reason they can be removed.
5. Removal by cauterization is effective, BUT will leave scarring and chances of recurrence are high, so consult with your Physician or Dermatologist about the same.
6. Avoid walking during peak hours (11 am to 4 pm) in sun to avoid sun burn which aggravates the condition,if not possible use a good sun screen with minimum SPF 30.
7. newer techniques like CO2 laser technique, and hair removal electric needle are becoming popular,and make sure you get this treatment from a well qualified Professional.
8. Most of the Insurance Companies categorize them under 'elective surgery' and will not pay for the surgery, talk with them in advance.
9. using a deep cleanser,exfoliating scrub pack for healthier skin and for keeping the skin pores clean.
