Yellow spot on inside of sclera, itching. What could it be?

i have a slight yellow spot on the inside of my scelera, its very scratchy and itchy and uncomfortable. i have noticed that it has been there 3 days. it is also starting on the other eye.there are also when i pull down the eye lid a lot of red veins in the area of the yellow spot with a slighty gellotine layer over the veins. this is in the eye that is scratchy and itchy and not in the other eye. Do i need to have this checked out and what could it possible be?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Dear Metacoach,Hi,Yellowish spot inside the sclera may be due to pinguecula or early pterigium.These are some of the degenerative changes of conjunctiva which is manifested. Sometimes if it gets inflamed then you may have pain ,redness and mucoid discharge.It is called pingueculitis if it affects pinguecula and inflamed pterigium if it affects pterigium.You have to use some low dose topical steroids and tear substitute for few days.If required an antibiotic drop may be added.Do rule out conjunctivitis and epicleritis too.I would suggest you to visit an ophthalmologist who can diagnose properly and treat you accordingly....TC..Dr Ajay Shankar Kar
