Hi, I am 29 years old, weight 54kgs, height 5.2. I have syringomas around eyes. I once visited a doctor who told me about this and then I opted for Homeopathy treatment for a year but it didn t help. I wanted to know if diet control can help improve it. specially things we should avoid in our food to control this situation.

Dear there,

Syringomas are harmless sweat duct tumors, typically found clustered on eyelids, although they may also be found in the armpits, umbilicus, or vulva. They are skin-colored or yellowish firm rounded bumps, 1-3 mm in diameter.

They may be removed with erbium or carbon dioxide lasers
wish you a good health soon.

1. due to overgrowth of cells from sweat glands found below the eyes, Syringomas are seen which are usually benign and of Cosmetic concern.
2. You haven't mentioned about the duration of symptoms?
3. is/were other causes like Xanthelasma, trichoepitheliomas,diabetes, and congenital conditions ruled out.
4. being harmless,no treatment is necessary, except for cosmetic purpose.
5. Cautery can be helpful but leaves scars behind, 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. CO2 laser technique, and hair removal electric needle are becoming popular.
8. use a deep cleanser,exfoliating scrub pack for healthier skin and for keeping the skin pores clean.
9. 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.
