my 3 year old daughter has hard lumps INSIDE of her upper and lower eyelid on her left eye. I can see it if her eye i closed or open. it doesn't hurt, it's not red nor is it itchy, it doesn't water. she's had this sense she was around 1 1/2, 2 years old. I asked the doctor and he said her eye was a little larger, not to worry. that was about a 1 1/2 ago. it is now twice the size and it's not her eye it's her upper and lower eyelid. does anyone have any idea what this could be?
Most bumps on the eyelid are styes. However, these are usually red and tender. There are other causes of bumps on the eyelids, these include:
Papillomas -- pink or skin-colored bumps. They are harmless, but can slowly grow, affect your vision, or bother you for cosmetic reasons. If so, they can be surgically removed.
Cysts -- small fluid-filled sacs that can affect your vision.
Xanthelasma -- raised yellow patches on your eyelids that can happen with age. These are harmless, although they are occasionally a sign of high cholesterol.
You should be sure that the physician actually takes a look at the bumps. If he/she does not have an explanation to your liking, you might want to have your daughter examined by a pediatric ophthalmologist.
