Blackhead below eyebrow, biopsy negative, use eye shadow. Treatment?

It appears to be a blackhead or ingrown hair right below my left eyebrow. About a year & half ago a dermatologist finally took a biopsy which was negative. Now once again it has appeared. I do not pluck eyebrows however do use eye shadow. Also ashamed to say I don't usually wash this part of my face. Could it be a clogged hair follicle from oil build up or excessive eye shadow ?

welcome to HCM!

Since biopsy has already been done and is negative so there is nothing to worry about.
You can exfoliate area if not infected. Using a mild exfoliator, work fingertips in small circles around hair follicle to loosen debris and dead skin, then rinse. it will help in removing black head .

eye shadow or other cosmetics must be cleaned at the end of day before sleeping for healthy skin.

take care!
